Zoe's episode 1 write up
Shortly after we got there, the Mechalus who’s name might have been Gepytilx, or Gerplytix told us that we were not to touch anything. Apparently the virus had infected the station’s satellites, and was designed to put all communications arrays around the galaxy out of commission. He was probably exaggerating a little (he seemed a little dramatic) but it didn’t sound good all the same. He turned the station’s guns on the satellites, and destroyed the ones that had the virus, then a ship landed in the docking bay.
It was most of the missing security guards, holding the captain hostage. They demanded that we give them control of the station, in exchange for the captain’s life. We had the Mechalus suck all the air out of the docking bay, suffocating 3 of them into unconsciousness. we took their weapons, dragged them out of the docking bay, and locked the doors again. After that, the security guards, who were the ones who installed the virus, and killed the rest of the security team, wouldn’t come out of their ship. they asked for a parley. The Mechalus had called for reinforcements when the ship landed, but we still had a couple of minutes before they got here, so the Fraal went out to stall them. We traded the hostages we’d taken for the captain, but when they got to their friends, they just killed them with a point blank shot from a stutter pistol. then they did the same for themselves.
The reinforcements arrived then and took over. destroying the virus and investigating who the men where. Also, apparently the Mechalus had launched another of the satellites into drive space, to get rid of some creature that was attacking it. It seemed to be a coincidences, so I didn’t ask him about it. The week after, the station opened on time, and a handful of ambassadors got to listen to the first transmission it sent. I wasn’t there, but I heard it wasn’t quite what was expected.
