Jacob coughed again and by accident he switched on his IR Vision, he saw something lurking around in the maintenance corridors, most of it was around 17 degrees colder than it's surroundings, it was a humanoid figure, but something on it's back was hotter than it's surroundings, it had the heat signature of a powercell, Jacob asked "Do we have any robots on this ship? 'Coz there is another robot lurking around the maintenance corridors, it could be a maintenance robot, or an assassin.
Dude. We don't need mre action. SLOW DOWN. Tidy up the story first.
Ben continued, "This thing has a power cell strapped to it, lasers screwed into its claws, and a gatling gun welded to its torso. These mods are neither legal, safe, or well done. The power supply took a direct hit, and the electrogel exploded as it touched oxygen. Either our enemies are desperate, or they need to take some engineering classes. I'm suprised this thing didn't combust in transport."
He took the tail section and sliced it off with a laser cutter, then put it in another biohazrd box to prevent the polyform from escaping. The glass vial inside disintegrated as thermo-reactive gas was sprayed on it, burning everything inside to oblivion.
"Perhaps . . . we should all remain in our suits until further notice. And everyone should carry a pistol at all times."
Ben paused momentarily, then stared at the rifle in Richard's hands. "What the hell is that thing? A miniature Argon Anti-Ship Cannon?"
