You were so successful in your previous search and rescue mission
on Tar-Nihih V that the Space Marine Commandant herself has picked
you for this *impossible* mission. Last sevenday, the Terran cruiser
"Das Es" was captured by a task force erupting from the otherspace
known to the farvid public as HELL. Psi-Net Intel sources confirm
at least ten of your colleagues are still alive in security detention
on the Hellworld Tar-Mranel IX. Your mission, as always, is search
and rescue-- get in, locate them, and get out. When your hypercomm
link shows Earth Defense Command that you have succeeded in your
mission (and not before), a variant of the experimental interdim tech
that started this hellish war will be engaged to retrieve you and your
fellow marines. Good luck, godspeed, and Semper Fi!
P.S.-- Funding and interdim constraints force us to send you
in with only a MK1 pistol, but intel assures us that the
weapons and supplies of the one previous (heavily armed) volunteer
should most probably be available for your use...somewhere.
P.P.S.-- Milintel cannot confirm that the latest mods to your defensive
systems will withstand the new pro-vuln tech you survived on T-N V. You'd
better trust your speed and wits, rather than the wiztoys of DefResearch .
P.P.P.S.-- Psi-Net has taken the precaution of linking your life-force with
that of the hostages, the better to track your progress across the parsecs.
The last marine we sent in messaged "Almost made it" before he bought the
farm. The only downside to linkage is: if the hostages go, so do you.
