OOC: Missed a little bit.

One of the landing craft has now touched bottom and several ape
creatures leap out.  Suddenly, out of nowhere, a friendly aircraft strafes
the boat and several of the ape-men fall.  The boat itself is damaged, but
still appears to be seaworthy, with only a couple of defenders left on

OOC: I'll give everyone until next Tuesday to decide whether they want
to take Alex's path or try for the landing craft.
