The Seventh - Level Two: Station Charon
Hesistating to look at the swirl of the hypergate, you prepare to jump in.
You can hear the hellspawn busting down the door of the center at that very
moment. Herd of Cyberdemons and Spider Masterminds can be heard stomping
their metallic legs against the floor. With a deep breath, you jump through
Pressure surrounds your head, giving you sinus trouble. A cool blue stream
of color is veiwable as you slide down at enormous speeds. Just as enough
pressure builds to make your head explode, all the world stops. You are in
the same place you started in.
You glance to the side to see some sort of computer terminal. Seeing the
letters UPS on it, you immediately know that is a Universal Posistioning
System. The first UPS was invented to give astronauts their co-ordinates with-
out needing to contact headquaters. You log in on the computer.
WELCOME, Guest, TO THE UNIVERSAL POSISTIONING SYSTEM MAIN MENU.
1) CALCULATE POSISTION
2) CONTACT HEADQUATERS
You decide to press "1" to see your coordinates.
THE CURRENT POSISTION OF Guest IS SECTOR 1374 (CHARON, MOON OF PLUTO.)
That shocks you. Just a minute ago you were on Earth! You press 2.

LOADING DOCUMENT IN MICRO CORP. WORD EXCELLENT
Marine, here's your first objective: Get off of Pluto and land on Neptune.
It's not as simple as it sounds, Marine - the enemy has disabled Hypergate
activity. Their main base is located on the planet Jupiter. Before you get
there, though, you must use their fuel supply airships to get from planet to
planet, where you will finally reach Jupiter. You can re-enable the Hypergate
technology, select the whole Earth and we will be relocated another place in
You first mission will be to get down from Charon and land on Pluto. On
Pluto, there is the main supply water and ice (it is very cold, you know). To
get down, use the hyperterminal which carries Charon's rich Plutonium deposits
down to Pluto. It won't be a long trip, however; the technology allows the
barrels to be flung just below the speed of sound, which will make it a
nine-hour or so trip. (As opposed to the nine days it would take normally.)
First, locate and activate light/heating systems. The switch shouldn't
be far from your starting point. Second, locate the yellow security card, and
open the yellow security door. The yellow security doors guard one of Charon's
main plutonium deposits. Destroy all plutonium barrels in the area. Descend
to the mines, where the red key will be waiting. Behind the red security doors
is another main plutonium deposit of Charon. Once again, destroy all barrels
of the element. Go into the second mine to obtain the blue keycard, then
return to the surface to go to the hyperterminal and land on Pluto.
So grab those weapons, Marine! Oh yes, I forgot to mention - after each
use of the hypergate, all weapons are stripped down to just a pistol and
fifty bullets, as well as your knuckleduster. Ammunition backpacks, excess
health, and armour are all taken away as well.
Good luck, Marine. Remember - it's for Earth.
COMPUTER SHUT DOWN
The computer monitor has a small flash, then it shuts itself down. You
know you are right outside hellish demons, one-eyed monsters, and disgusting
helpers of Satan. But, like your Commander said:
"This is for Earth."

"The Seventh - Level 02: Station Charon" is a bit bigger than Launch Gate.
(60K compared to 105K) It took me about 1:45 in Launch Gate, but in Station
Charon I'd be surprised if I could get under three.
Lots of detail in this one; it's actually pretty hard to make a mine realistic
in a level, so I didn't go for extreme detail in the mines. It looks rather
plain, actually. Just a couple of wood bars and supports holding the mine up.
There are still the semi-famous railings of mine in the level. Also in this
level: conveyer belts, exploding Plutonium barrels, mining areas, cargo bases,
tech labs, and nude chicks! Okay, maybe not the last one, but still.
