Gamma Labs was designed and built to study the energy output of certain demons. Specifically, those that are able to hurl energy balls. Initial tests of the facilities went smoothly, but despite the new safety measures, enforced structual designs (including smaller passageways designed to accomodate humans only) and computer systems with the new quantum processors, Gamma Labs fell to the fate of previous Martian complexes.
As you know, the Gamma Labs complex is now overrun with demons.
A fly-by at a safe height reveals extra construction has been done, apparently by the demons, starting at the north end of the base. UAC had plans to add additional study and containment facilities to the northeast and northwest. The beginnings of these new wings were obviously easy points for the demons to build their own hives, or whatever they're called.
Your job is to scout the base, find the exit teleporter, and report on the feasibility of saving this base. Otherwise, we'll have to nuke it from orbit. With a cost of $3.4 trillion, UAC is naturally reluctant to do this.
Some notes on the base:
All power comes from the UAC's new Z-Point power module design, most of which is housed several meters beneath the surface. So for the most part, systems should be operational. You'll want to be careful getting around the cacodemon storage facilities. The walkways are narrow and with the demons controlling the base, the normal stasis fields keeping the cacos from attacking base personnel may have been turned off. When you teleport in, you'll be facing a temporary holding area for cacodemon transport, which uses stasis fields to keep the demons from roaming around. Again, this may have been disabled. This is an extreme hazard area as there are no safety rails around the containment pits.
Other than that, we don't know what's in there any more. Proceed with extreme caution. Good luck, marine.
