With a bit more effort, Koba finally manages to program
the autopilot.

Louissa quickly sets the fusion block to explode in forty five
seconds.  "We go now!" she shouts to whoever is left on board.

She then looks to the tied up Kittanni and curses.  "Damn it!" she
mutters.  She grabs the Kittanni and tosses him over the edge
and down through the submarine hatch, where he crashes not
far from the rest of the company.

She shrugs as she makes her way out of the boat.  "Alex would
be pissed off if I wasted her rope!"

OOC: I'm assuming anyone left on the boat is getting off now.

As the hatch to the submarine is shut, the boat can faintly
be heard racing off.

Thirty seconds turns into twenty seconds, twenty seconds, and
everyone is moving through the airlock.

Ten seconds and the last of the party are moving out of the

Five seconds, and the airlock hatch is sealed with a loud hiss.

Through one of the windows the boat, now several hundred feet
away can be seen exploding in a violent plume.  The lights scan
the area for a few more minutes, then move away.

The company is now in a cold, dark, dank sub, its crew
somewhere in some sort of hibernation.
