OOC: Again I apologize for the late post. I've been so busy on
multiple fronts I didn't get a chance until today to get the next post

Again the vehicle is stopped by Vesper's energy field.

The concussion grenade hits just as the driver stops the vehicle.
Between Vesper's energy field and the grenade's effects, there seems
little chance of escape now. Four soldiers are already pulling their
guns and shouting "Hands in the air, now!" and at least a dozen are
running towards it.

Alex spies four other hover vehicles in the immediate vicinity [OOC:
No more than fifty feet away].

Justin looks to Oz. "I think that's that then..."

And then, quite suddenly, there's a bright flash and a loud boom. The
guard's are knocked back, there's a moment's blindness and confusion,
followed by a thick cloud of black smoke surrounding the vehicle.
Oddly enough it cannot penetrate Vesper's energy field, and terminates
there like ink hitting the outside of a glass jar. There's a hint of
movement within the cloud, a flash of what looks like a yellowish
oozing tentacle here and there and a sound like someone smashing
