    ahahahah, it's adorable that you think Rank can differentiate between friend and foe when he's in a full on blood rage

    Just stand still. Don't move. Don't breathe. Don't blink. There is a chance he might not see you if he can't detect the motion.

    Now imagine Rank as one of those statue aliens from Doctor Who. Thanks. Like he needed to be more terrifying. I already have nightmares and I'm still in the pilot's lounge.

    Hey guys.

    Guys?

    This thing is the safety, right?

    What? No I cleared marksmanship, you know, back in basic. Just, you know, haven't had field time with recent weaponry.

    Huh? Um, sixteen years ago.

    Mostly analytics. Logistics. Supporting the war effort. I won a commendation last year for reducing shipping container wait time 23%.

    Yeah.

    So this is the safety?

    Guys?

    And if that fails, slowly, VERY slowly, offer him morphine. He'll still likely kill you, but it might be less.... romantic.

    Well the "lounge" is now the couch in the back of the mobile command post which has a dozen NATO army divisions between us and Wubble Woo. However we got beer, popcorn, and live closed-circuit tv feeds directly into the base. Good luck guys, we'll keep some frosty for you. Oh and the nurses said hi Rank.


    Meanwhile Bogey and MechMantis are just circling the base in their interceptors, unsure if they'll ever be able to land again...

    Hey, don't look at me man, I just followed the blue line to the surface and found a bunch of guys in berets standing around. Guess the EU doesn't like to take chances. Not that they can really do much if Team Ultima goes down.

    Actually, if that happens I fully expect Theidar to detonate the nuke that it had surgically implanted into Rank's chest. Come to think of it, I'm going to mention they move the mobile command back a couple of miles...

    {speaking through Rank's headset} I just checked with Dr. Computer Generated Faggotry, he says he left some "primo shit" in his office. His words. It's under the porn mags in the bottom desk drawer.
