"I think we have no choice but to split up. We need to stop the
descent of the sub before we piledrive into the sea floor or the hull
gets compromised. Koba, Carlos and myself will head down to the engine
room, blow the ballast and shut the engines down. The rest of you can
head to the bridge and deal with this Control. Once we blow the
ballast, we can get back to the bridge to help. I've been on the ship
for months now I know my way around so barring any major obstacles we
can get to bridge pretty quick."

"Koba is right. The sub is tight quarters all throughout. I can't tell
you how many times I cracked my skull on the water tight doors when
there wasn't an emergency. Be careful with the gun fire in here. Those
pipes over head aren't for show and are either high pressure steam or
return lines. If they break we have an issue on our hands, not enough
to kill us but its not good especially . Alot of the non structural
parts of this sub aren't reinforced like the hull, so a stray laser
shot will go through a couple rooms. The med bay is half way between
here and the bridge. The armory is right behind the bridge. All of the
weapons are stored there. The watertight doors can be closed and
barred if you need them to be, but we need a way back and there are
only so many routes to the bridge."

"Let's try not to kill the crew, whatever is onboard is controlling
them. Most of them pose no threat to us physically."
