The spaceport on Obraxis Prime was bustling.

People going to and from ships all across the facility. Obraxis Prime was one of the most popular spaceports. People were dining at the spaceport's many diners, or outside on the tables and chairs. Others ran around the many shops, buying food and water, toys, and other items. Some were waiting in the lines for medium sized vessels, and others were full of people leaving them. Some smaller ships were docked, crews of five to ten doing repairs or stocking supplies. Hundreds walked around the spaceport, going places others wouldn't know.

One man in particular, Bently Huber, was about to do something no other man would dare. He had arrived at the spaceport three weeks ago, and spent time collecting multiple materials. From jury rigged batteries and power cells to multiple titanium, he was finally done. He had intel of a Survival Fabricator located in one of the nearby small ships. He already had a silenced weapon he had purchased years ago. But that wasn't enough. A silenced laser pistol couldn't do much.

He had his backpack full of the materials, and his pistol holstered at his side. Walking north from the entrance was the check in area. They scanned you there, so he had to find a way around.

He pushed over a woman and ran before anyone saw him. That got their attention, but not at him. They ran over to help the lady, and he went past. Nobody noticed him.

Bently walked casual north, then too the first turn down the south corridor. He moved forward, then stopped at the security office. He opened the door, and the only security guard glanced up at him. The guard stood, but as soon as the automatic door shut, he pulled out the silenced laser pistol. In a single moment, the guard was dead. No turning back now. He grabbed the badge off the guard and looked around approaching a console.

Searching the consoles, he found the location of a ship. "A-348" was located on the northwest wing, and had a functioning survival fabricator. If he could get there...

He walked out of the room, checking his surroundings. Tons of people were in the southern wing, but hadn't heard the events. He walked back to the main area, the went down the northwest wing. He followed it down for about 10 minutes, then located the ship. The crew was working on it, and the security badge came in handy. He walked up to the crew.

"Hello sir, would you mind if I inspected your ship? A recent discovery of chems was discovered, and we need to check for mandatory reasons." He said, a bead of sweat dripping down his face. This needed to work.

"Oh, uh, sure man! Go ahead!" The man opened the door, and Bently went inside. Bently walked into the front, then into the back. The Lifepod was a segment in the back, and he stepped in. The fabricator had power, so he walked up and opened the interface He took out his materials and placed them on the base. He quickly selected the Automatic Laser Rifle Option. He waited as it formed, and grabbed the weapon, holstering it in the backpack. He opened the door, stepped out, and looked at the man.

"Your all good sir. See you!" And Bently walked away. He walked back to the main lobby, where hundreds walked around doing many things. It was time. He slowly opened the bag and pulled out the automatic weapon. Some people saw it and screamed, but it was too late. He was already firing. People ran, but most were hit. He fired wildly. No real target but everyone there.

This is what they gets! He yelled in his mind, attempting to make himself keep shooting. This is what they get for taking my baby girl!

    They should put more lore about this in Below Zero, maybe even use some of this in it.
