“Well done, BESU squad. You will lead the expedition to this technological headquarters as soon as we locate it. Stay put and remember, this is top secret information.” – said the general. After a few days, the squad received the coordinates for the asteroid’s expected path, and a time window to intercept it and to land on the base.
The soldiers can feel the excitement in their guts, and each one expresses it in a different way. Some choose to do gun maintenance, just to have something to do with their hands; others meditate, to center themselves before the battle; and a few crack open the whisky bottles and cigar boxes, just in case it’s their last. When the time comes, however, they’re all in the best shape they’ve ever been, and ready to storm a highly advanced and little known alien technological headquarters, possibly with immortal creatures.
As the spaceship approaches the rogue asteroid, many circuits start to malfunction. A strong magnetic field interferes with the superconductors’ conductivity, and the ship collides with the asteroid. As its gravitational pull is weak, no physical harm comes out of the crash, but the adventurers are now stranded and have trouble communicating with home base.
Leaving the ship in their rover and suits, due to the hazardous conditions, the explorers find a few alien creatures unlike anything they’ve ever seen. Coming across life forms that survive on an asteroid’s surface is a rare occurrence, but it seems like this isn’t the product of mere chance — the inhabitants seem to be a mix of several adaptations combined to survive in this place, something that could only be achieved by deliberate engineering. Some are docile, others are aggressive, but none can tear their suits, which would spell doom for the heroes, who wouldn’t survive in the vacuum.
Finally, the squad reaches a structure protected by turrets, which heavily damage their rover. After a protracted fight, they reach their destination, even if leaving the place might be difficult. With their ship crashed and the rover destroyed, there’s only one way to go now: forward!
Inside the facility, undead minions, grafted with and mutated by alien technology, await, as well as robotic foes. A single hit could prove lethal to our heroes, as their enemies surely can withstand very harsh atmospheres, or the total lack of one. Eventually, they reach the final subterranean chamber, and an imposing creature, with many ducts and wires jutting out from his throne, gazes at them. “You stand before Overlord Kassius. Prepare to cede your life force for my greater good!”
