Bouncing between the floor and the ceiling - fatally.  That was quick.

this seems a little callous, even for him.

Sudden, violent, unexpected counter-attacks are the only appropriate response. Unless you're willing to hand a tactical advantage to someone trying to kill you.

Remember, Eithne's still a hostage. It might be hard to mend fences with the Glutes after pulping their agents in such cavalier fashion. Good use of the environment, though.

Eithne is still a priority. And I'd be willing to bet she's worth more to the Glutes than two troopers. The mending of fences is now a low priority.

Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!

That works, too!  And was far more hilarious!

Okay, that's not exactly new, but it's still funny. Old Traveller grognards call that "Grav-Pong" and it's reason why 3rd Imperium (and other 1st line powers') battledress includes contragravity circuitry also useful for flying...

A new twist on the Star Trek "Red Shirt" trope...Did they wear red so you couldn't see the blood?

Seriously, though...the intruders appear to be quite dead. Seamus/Hugo's documented "anger management/genocidal tendencies" notwithstanding, this seems a little callous, even for him. Remember, Eithne's still a hostage. It might be hard to mend fences with the Glutes after pulping their agents in such cavalier fashion. Good use of the environment, though.

I get the feeling that the Glutes, while perhaps academically acknowledging Hugo & Murphy's sentience, don't really respect them as creative beings, and are subtly biased against the Amazing Androids™ due to their non-organic status.


My big question is: how the [expletives redacted] did the louts get aboard the Causa Sui in the first place?  What can be done once can be repeated.  Presumably with more minions.

I agree. The only reason they didn't send an explosive was because they wanted to capture the ship intact for its secrets. Once they feel that's no longer an option...Seamus & Company need someone with serious tactical experience on their side right now. Where's someone like this guy when you REALLY need him?

It would appear that Hugh doesn't NEED a berserker mode as long as he can out-think his opponents.

The good news is, they shot first, so he's fully within rightful ethics pwning them.

If they don't have any weapons on board, They both need to be kicked out an air lock and left.

Even without weaponry Seamus should be able to easily beat an entire squad with his speed- and strenght advantage. Assuming that our aliens operate roughly within human parameters.

ObNote: Our heroes should have some inkling of aliens' physiological parameters at this point. If they're operating on ...say Krogan parameters, this equation changes considerably.

I'd be greatly surprised if the crew didn't have at least their personal zingers.  Heavier portable weaponry would likely be secured in some kind of armory.

I fail to see how this is any sort of a real problem.  Repeat after me:

"Computer - initiate emergency atmospheric venting.  Expose all areas of the ship to hard vacuum immediately."

Problem solved.
