Sara didn't know much about the creatures, but she knew she didn't want one near her face. She dropped her gun and clamped her large hands onto the spider as it scrambled up her leg, trying to pry it off and away from her body. "Oh no ya don't!"

OOC: Just to make sure I'm understanding this correctly; the 2 alive are the ones on Wang and Jonssen? If that's not correct; I'll change this post...


Sam felt her adrenaline spike and a moment of savage joy when she watched several of her bursts take out some of the alien...things...."YA MON!"; she called out in exultation...before her joy was instantly crushed seeing one of those things crawling on poor Wang.

Taking a deep breath, she moved as quick as she could towards her fellow Marine; safing her Pulse Rifle and slinging it over one shoulder on its strap as she did so. "WANG! I'm coming!"; "Perez! Get ready to shoot 'dis ting!" she yelled out as she raced over to Wang and prepared to grab the thing and TOSS it towards whatever corner of the hold DIDN'T have any people in it....

<Tag Wang, Tag Perez>

Clint felt like he'd just woken up in the middle of a nightmare as small spider creatures with tails were flying through the room towards the marines. He saw one on Wang's leg as most of the others had been blasted into deadly shrapnel. It seemed these smaller things may also have the acid blood of the bigger creatures. He backed up against a wall and went back to a low ready position so that he could quickly react to any additional threats.

Not sure if any of the other eggs or pods or whatever the hell they were had these small spider creatures in them, he opened fire on each one he could with a short burst. He was specifically aiming at pods/eggs that were not close to or in line with his fellow marines. "The fuck with taking one of these things with us, I say we destroy them all" he called out to the others as he began letting short bursts go at each egg/pod. He briefly thought back to an old horror movie he'd seen as a teenager. "I'm not going to be replaced by a pod person."

"Yall be careful with these things, I think the little one's have the acid blood too. After we get sarge we gotta get the hell out of here."

<Location: Hadley's Hope - The Nest - beneath the Atmospheric Processor Plant>

Just before the first burst shot was fired, something poured down on him from above. His blue bandana could not stop it all. A small amount of it poured right into his eyes, causing a burning pain in an instant. The gun salvo missed this spider creature completely ...

"Fuck, my eyes, can't see a shit"

... Perez tried to blink and rubb that stuff out of his eyes. A few seconds later, his vision began to clear up again. The timing of this was just terrible, as more those spiders came out of their cozy resting places. Pulse rifles opened up. His eyes did hurt like hell and the vision began to blur again, this time, due to a mixture of sweat and teardrops. He tried to take a look through his eyepiece to pick up a target, but his vision was not good enough yet.

Somebody shouted his name, sounded like Hall, but he was distracted and did not understand, because there was something else, something ... very very bad. One of those spiders had apperently sneaked up in behind him. He felt it, landing on his back. Those ... finger-like legs moved on him. He realised in a frag of a second, that he was as good as dead, because there was no way to grab that thing, but there was one last chance ...

He ran towards the next marine, was it McKenna, and shouted ...

The things attacked quickly. Coming from the eggs like a spring and then homeing in on the Marines. His squad moved into action, more like a well team then a group that had been put together from other units. Four of the six creatures exploded in a spray of acid and body parts, leavening only two. The one on Wang was moving up her body as she fought to keep it away from her face.

"Get that fuckin thing off Wang, I'm grabbing the Sarge." Dirk shouted to the squad as he pointed at the thing.
<Tag first squad>

Turning quickly to the limp form of the Sargent, Dirk pulled out his K-bar combat knife and started to use the razor sharp blade to cut and pry the resin that held her body against the wall. "This shits tough as hell." He complained as he pulled large chunks of the thick, sticky material off her and tossed it to the floor. "Come on, come on." He mumbled to himself nervously as he looked quickly back to Wang and the rest of the squad removing the creature from her.

Clint turned hearing the words from Perez and saw one of the small creatures on his shoulders and back. He let the rifle down on it's sling and grabbed at two of the long finger looking legs. They felt cool to the touch, almost like a dead body. They were immensely strong for something as small as it was. He pulled as hard as he could and hoped to fling the horrid looking thing as far as he could.

"Perez fire now!"

Somehow, McKenna got that thing off him and threw it away, before it could do any harm. He aimed at that that small bug and fired a burst ...

Hearing the delightful sounds of a Smartgun firing a burst; Sam grabs ahold of the alien crawling on Wang; along with her fellow Marine herself and says to her; "Over dere on 3. One...two.....tree!"; and tosses it in the direction of the front of Perez's M56. "Perez; blow dat ting to hell mon!"; she yells, while un-slinging her own Pulse Rifle to be ready to blast any more alien hellspawn.......

He had no time to check on the first one, because another one of those small bugs got hurled away. This time it was Private Hall. He picked up the target and fired a 4 round burst at the spider.
