With the fish men out ofthe way and the eerie eye no longer blocking  
the way, Koba will attempt to open the hatch and get the group through  
while Talas is holding the crew back. As soon as everyone is through,  
he will attempt to bar the door shut with a lock or anything avaliable  
on the other side. Now they will try to make it to the actual engine
