Storyline

Vansen wakes from a disturbing dream in which she sees her parents die to discover she is aboard the space carrier Saratoga. The squadron gets orders to protect a mining station against any Chig actions. As they arrive at the colony a laser battle erupts killing two of the squad. The rest withdraw as it becomes apparent the attackers are not Chigs but AI's infected with a computer virus that encourages independent action. A counter attack is mounted but most of the squad is captured. The AIs begin torturing the squad members trying to discover when a relief convoy is due. Hawkes, knowing the AIs devotion to gambling challenges the leader to a game of cards, with his life as the prize. Before the game is completed the remainder of the squad counters attacks and frees the team. The Space Marines prepare to make their last stand when Vansen attacks from behind and wipes out most of the AIs. Vansen then pursues the remaining AI's back to their ship then destroys it during liftoff. Later ... Written by glen_chapman <chapman_glen@yahoo.com>
