Dr. Shimura: "Nevertheless, as a Trattorian scientist I will protect the honor of the enlightened and fight to the last!"
After activating his teleporter, and a quick consultation with the Brikwars 2001 "Heisenberg Ker-Pow Table"...
The Lancelot sat motionless, its power down and the pilot inactive. The structure was there, but the data on its computers and the memories of its passenger no longer were. The teleporter had crit-failed and resulted in a subatomic drift.
Meanwhile, hovering above the planet in a Clark orbit, the dreadnought Acumen
was buzzing in commotion.
"The Lancelot's gone silent!"
"Is it really true how one Bavarian..."
"Dr. Shimura's gone brain-dead! I knew that teleporter was suspicious."
Dr. Leopold: "Please, Department Chair Ong, have mercy! Such a design flaw would have been unnoticeable to the average soldier. Even getting the Blaze Luminous to function properly was a miracle!"
Dr. Ong: "In science, failure is a matter of a course and an opportunity to convalesce and progress. However, the magnitude of this catastrophe is unforgivable. The defeat of our greatest war machine ever permitted to test on foreign soil, to a single Bavarian rifleman, is an inexorable error. It is an unmitigated humiliation of our nation's intellectuals and innovative talent. For this insult to the Engineering Department I hereby strip you of your rank and your Ph.D. Report to planet Pouvoir for your new assignment as a military conscript."
Admiral Fleur: "And of the security of the situation?"
Dr. Ong: "We have already self-destructed the Lancelot planet side to prevent its technology from falling into foreign hands. We have a few extra frames on Soledad. Oh, and we'll let the Bavarians keep the RbT if they so please. We do have a countermeasure for that now, after all, thanks to the wonderful efforts of Dr. Pang and his associates."Bavaria/Third Alliance wins.
