The Calvarian Tempest drives over the wreckage of the Archer, firing its main gun and annihilating the medic and support gunner. The officer loses a hit point and goes flying backward.
He is finished off by the sniper and a Calvarian soldier.
Officer: "All hostiles neutralized, ma'am. Area secured."
Katrina: "Excellent. Inform the Emperor and transmit the data from the Kuragin computer cores to those of his vessel."
Officer: "Already on it ma'am. It seems the Kuragin forces have begun a secret mining operation here on the planet. They've discovered some sort of ancient ruin and have been unable to continue. They may have called for reinforcements and extra work crews."
Katrina: "Do you know its location?"
Officer: "Yes ma'am. The computer files show its exact location on the planet."
Katrina: "Inform the planetary governor that I will need more troops, and prepare to move out. They will regret trespassing into our empire!"
Officer: "Yes ma'am!"
