The Merg Military had a reputation. Not as the most technologically advanced force. Nor were they the sharpest.

To say that hiding amongst them had been a challenge was understatement of the highest order. Cocker let out a huge sigh of relief when his databox buzzed and began streaming data that ended in a map color-coded with mission targets.

        Demios let off two ringing blasts of plasma, which joined Kryce's cannon fire to cut the legs out from a reinforced gun tower. The sniper fire that had been pouring from it immediately died out as... more
