Vesper opens a mystic portal 120' up to get everyone to the ship.
"Alright look around get your bearings and head through the door !"
"Go, go, go."
He heads through once most of the others are through maintaining it till they have all made it to
the ship then shutting it down.

 Unfortunately the cycles are conventional, and not
 Louissa radios back a few moments later. "We're
 about eighty feet off the ground."
 Vesper estimates they are probably thirty or forty feet
 underground, meaning the ship is hovering 110 to 120 feet
 above them.

 Keldon and his uninjured son pick up the other son and move
 quickly through the door.

 The supports above the doorway are made of mega damage
 steel, and Alex's weapon may not be able to bring them
 down quickly.
 Meanwhile at the other end of the room, the
 door gives way, the center of it falling over as molten
 slag. As the first Kydian jumps through, Alex fires [Strike:
 17, Damage: 40MD]. The Kydian's armor takes quite a bit
 of damage and he leaps behind some shelves. Another Kydian
 sticks his energy rifle through the hole in the door and
 fires, striking the floor near Alex's feet [Damage:
 20MD], blasting a hole in the floor.
 It can only be a few more moments before the
 Kydians try an all out assault.
