OOC: We'll continue this on as much as possible...

Somehow Koba's energy rifle slips out of his hand just as he pulls
the trigger.  The floor beneath him is blow away [Damage: 20MD], and
he falls through.  The other three only have a moment to look at each
other before the the whole section of floor beneath them gives away.
When they come to their senses, they are lying in a heap in a very
cramped access space.

Above them they see two horrifying creatures, scaly like fish,
but upright walkers with large frog-like eyes, fins in the back,
two gangley feet and two long arms ending in long, thin, six-
fingered hands.  Both are holding strange-looking but still
recognizable energy rifles.  On their backs are packs with
tubes leading from them into their chest cavities.

"Gwetttt upppp nowghh." one of them says in a thick accent
one might expect from a goldfish if they could talk.
