Swimming in environmental armor dragging an unconscious person behind him is taxing almost all the reserve Koba's small frame can handle. Panting as he reaches the sub, Koba appears exhausted. "Help me get him in the sub" he shouts to those already on the sub. It takes much of his strength to pull himself up and into the hatch.

The gear which Alex has are part of what makes her able to compete with those much more powerful than her and be an asset to the team.

>> Louissa, Koba and Owen, on Alex's direction dive below and assister her.  They find two of the crew of the boat, the Elf named Arsendel and the navigator Etta.  Both Arsendel and Etta are still unconscious, and Etta is not breathing.
>> Behind them, a few of the crew are still putting up a fight on the sinking ship, firing on the barges.  The approaching Kittani ships, however, quickly dispense with them with a few well-placing missiles that reduce the boat to flaming flotsam.
>> The two remaining barges, on the other hand, continue towards the company, as does several fish men, whose swimming capabilities far exceed most of the company.
>> The loud voice again booms.  "Surrender is your only option.  This is your last chance.  Further resistance will lead to your destruction."
>> The company is rapidly running out of options.  Osiris is the only conscious person capable of piloting the mini-sub, Alex, Louissa, Koba and Owen are burdened with unconscious or disabled people they have rescued, and only Carlos, Ted and Justin are completely free to open fire.  The barges are now no more than eighty feet away, the closest fish men about forty.  It's hard to estimate how far away the Kittani boats are, but they're probably within a thousand feet and closing fast.  The nearest land, not visible from the water line, is at least two miles to the north.
