Morse, Mckenna and Kelly began to herd the bewildered civilians towards the front entrance while Sokolova and Paulson escorted their own prisoner back down the alleyway towards the command post.

Back at the APAC's, Lt Harper leaned over Henniger's shoulder and watched the screen of his remote control deck as he piloted the little recon drone down onto the rooftop and focused the onboard IR camera downwards to survey the room that SgtMaj Sykes was standing in. The reddish blob nearest the door was instantly tagged with a marine issue PDT which the drone recognized as Sykes and highlighted green for friendly on Henniger's control panel. The two heat signitures standing in the corner of the room were both tagged with standard civilian PDT's so the drone connected to the colony's data net and logged into the administration database. It quickly identified the two individuals as Laura Hobbs and Rachel Goldstien, both resident's of Ariarchus registered as employees of the Eye of Oblivion bar. The last three heat signatures, the ones surrounding Sykes, had no PDTs to identify them.

the rear door slammed open under the influence of Halls boot and 2nd squad followed the sergeant through and into the rear of the building. Glancing around, Hall found herself surrounded by doors. The two opposite the door they had made entrance through were firmly closed. The door immediately to the right of their entrance was standing open and led to a back office of some kind. The last two doors led to toilet stalls. The one on the left was closed but the right-hand door stood open and revealed the form of a person wearing combat fatigues hunched over the bowl as if to vomit.

A bead of sweat ran down Sykes' face as he stared down the gun barrel. It was a stressful situation, sure, but most of his job was dealing with stressful situations. Fortunately, engaging and communicating with people was one of his strong suits, augmented by training he had received. His objective now was to get the hostages out of danger and ideally himself too. He also wanted to buy his unit time to set up. In his current state he was unable to dictate the action of his unit, but he trusted all of them with his life. He would have to do so again.

"Okay, I'm going to raise my hand but I'm just keying my microphone. If you walk out that door with that pulse rifle, they might shoot you, so let me order them to stand down." He raised his hand slowly and pretended to key the mic that was already on. "Team, stand down. We have some fellow Marines in here that are armed and I don't want this thing to escalate. We will come out in two minutes." He turned to the guy with the pistol in his face. "Listen, you guys are Marines and so I know you aren't dumb enough to point those guns at my platoon. But seriously, you can trust our medics. McKenna and Davros are good guys, though Davros might talk your ear off. We've fought the xenomorphs more times than I can count. We all fucking hate them and if Wey-Yu did something to you guys, we are siding with you. Your buddy isn't going to make it to a medic you can trust, so you need to trust me."

Upon seeing the guy 'worshipping the porcelain Gods', Samantha said to no one in particular; "Oh for F#$k's sake.....", and shaking her head, she said; "Doc, check on Mr. Hurl over there; everybody else, stay frosty and watch every doorway".

Moving to the open door leading to an office, she carefully stepped in, keeping her Shotgun leveled and quickly doing the 'corners check' as she scanned the room and called out, "Colonial Marines! Anybody in here?"

(IF she gets no response, sees nothing amiss), She'll motion to the closed doors and say, "Okay people, let's check these rooms out, stay alert and at the ready."
