Mission Briefing

Well, that thing is gone, so the station is safe for now. The breached districts have been sealed off until repair crews can get in there. But I suppose you're wondering what happened. Let me back up for a moment.

Dr. Calus's original goal was to create a ship energy system that used advanced nanites to harvest the energy that binds subatomic particles together. The amount of energy that could be produced would be staggering. Think of it. The offensive potential of our ships and weapons systems could be increased a hundred-fold at least, maybe a thousand-fold.

But somehow Delainen subverted Calus's research. He spent years living in close proximity to a nest of rogue drones; he even claimed to have struck up a beneficial relationship with them. Who knows what that does to a person?

They inserted the nanites, programmed by Prof. Delainen, into the battlecruiser's systems, but the things immediately began to malfunction. In less than ten minutes, they had changed the structure of the ship to ... something else. The security 'reels show a flash of light, almost like a jump gate activation, and then Delainen just disappears. Then, immediately, the battlecruiser begins to move. We have heard of massive rogue drones, but this is different.

The ship actually spoke to Calus, who was injured during the ship's violent transformation. It said its name was "ROM." Then it blew a hole through the wall of the station into open space and blasted out of there. Everyone in the lab was killed, including Calus.

We believe that the nanites somehow merged Delainen into the ship they had created, making it some sort of bizarre biomechanical symbiote. But we need to know what happened for certain, and this ? well, this Delainen-ROM symbiote, I guess, for lack of a better name ? is the only thing that can give us the answers.

We want you to go out there and confront it; we've tracked its location, and it's still in this system. I'll send the coordinates to your NeoCom. Destroy it if you must, and then sift through the wreckage to find its central AI core. Bring that back for further study.


Objective

Destroy the Delainen-ROM Symbiote; return its AI core to your agent.
