In Response To: Re: Tour of Duty - Defend THIS! *LONG* (Yossarian)

: "The result of this is a ship that, while masterfully ran, is full of
: oddities and inconsistencies, many of which can be and have been deadly.
: Case in point was the 2506 Mess Hall Tragedy in which a reactor coolant
: storage chamber had been converted into a cafeteria only four years
: pre-launch. A pressure overload, duct malfunction, and a programming
: glitch conspired to flood the mess with lava on lasagna Thursday, killing
: 148 crew and family. There are switches built high onto walls where
: mezzanines were planned but never built. Only 98.4% of the platform
: actuators installed in the Marathon have ever been accounted for, meaning
: there are possibly thousands of surfaces onboard capable of rising and
: lowering, but the inventories for these have been long lost to history.
: Add to this doors that open to sheer drops, gale force winds that can rise
: unexpectedly in service corridors, centuries-old booby traps lain by
: Martian insurrectionists, and all those dangers still undiscovered and the
: Marathon becomes a very dangerous place for the unsuspecting engineer.

: "The AI's have been invaluable in identifying the many design
: discrepancies but even they become frustrated from time to time when the
: ship's capabilities don't correspond in the way the Marathon tells them
: they should. Durandal reports that automated systems draw 2.1% more energy
: than he can account for, and Tycho from time to time detects surges and
: power draws from the reactors that he is similarly at a loss to
: explain."

: -Marathon Master Engineer Professor Orion McCray, excerpt from
: "Marathon Engineering Essentials", 10.4.2649

A long-overdue question: where is all this from? I've never seen any terminals with this stuff. If you're pulling this out of your sleeve, I'm prepared to give you a map where you are trapped in a small room with only fists, as little health as possible, and seven Troopers breathing down your neck. ;)

If you're not, I'm prepared to give you a map where you get to blow up BoBs of all varieties with impunity. And a fancy form of the word 'congratulations'.

Vale,
Perseus
