The Sentinel team is rounded up by the Black Moth mercenary escort in a farm-truck with hidden modifications. Dave and Sandy stay hidden with chameleon armor and hitch rides on the underside and back of the farm-truck while Stan, Jak, Zak, Dr. Bernal, Asa and basically everyone else BUT Ganos follow in the camouflaged APC of Stan’s.
Approaching the “Homestead” Sandy notices the bright ultra-spectrum light of Tetrahertz wavelength light surrounding the complex and realizes that her camouflage armor will not conceal her from the defenses of the facilty and she drops off out of range of the ultra-spectrum light and hides among the terrain.
Dave stays strapped on to the underside of the farm-truck and rides unseen into the compound and all the way into the motorpool/bunker concealed within/under the “Barn”. Under the watchful eye of a LandMate Battlesuit escort the team disembarks from the vehicles and undergoes a security scan to load them into the system and protect them from the automated computer defenses of the facility.
While the rest of the team head into the house escorted by Sgt. Hap Hapablap, Dave stays behind in the motorpool to infiltrate and sabotage. The team are brought through the armored airlock into the “farmhouse” and to the extremely high-tech elevator leading down into the true facility below.
Trancorp’s “Black” Lab
Leaving the elevator the posh corporate lobby of the secret lab opens before the team. revealing the internal corporate security desk and registration station.
Trancorp Lab Lobby
The team are all processed and provided with access to Karl, the facility AGI and the “Docent” program. An augmented reality escort for the facility that answers questions and takes you to whatever you want to see while guiding your tour. Once again, the team pass through a security checkpoint (and microwave, high density scan) as they are given their Mesh ‘Visitors passes’.
Trancorp Lab Scanner and Temporary ID station
As Ganos continues his ruse of being the Trancorp executive ‘Rockfort’, Jak the swarmcat sleeved runaway cruises down the hall searching for clues, like a feline Scooby-Doo, finding the obersation hall for the Technaium.
Trancorp Lab Overlook Hallway
She quickly Tac-Nets visuals of what she sees through the window to the rest of the team. Alerting them to the amazing and dangerous research taking place in the facility below. Revealing the presence of TITAN war technology and a xeno-artifact.
Trancorp Lab Multi-Research Technarium
The team, under the direction of the Docent program, make their way down to the Technarium to get a closer look at the research. Discovering to their horror the threats to Martian transhumanity that lie here. Wonder and horror spread through the group as the scope of the threat and the audacity of the research sink in. The first study they encounter is titan “Assimilator” robot under research by the emminient genius argonaut, Dr. Tenma.
Doctor Tenma, TITAN Argonaut
Dr. Tenma turns out to be completely unimpressed by Ganos’ ‘Rockfort’ persona, apparently knowing the man well enough to be aware of his standing within the corporation and regarding him as a criminal and low-life, but necessary evil that Trancorp must employ for certain ‘business considerations’. However he has no time or patience for this nuisance.
WHile Ganos dances verbally with Tenma, Asa heads directly over to the wierdly glowing blue gold object in the xeno-artifact containment area.
Trancorp Lab Artifact containment Dias
Encountering Dr. ???? and her research staff of four technologists and scientists, Asa begins a gruff dialog with her, immediately alerting the genius doctor of his intention of taking the alien artifact from the facility.
Doctor ? XenoArtifact Argonaut
The doctor takes the evidence of this ‘obvious industrial espionage operation’ stoically. asking if there is any chance she will remain alive.
