    This is too easy. They're probably going to get a nasty surprise in the executive accommodation unit. I wonder what the fate of the Torgalijin personnel will be since Selkirk wants to spare them... send them back to the Sol system?

    To be fair, they've had that base down there for a long time and they're not used to anything exciting happening. They might not even have noticed De Ruyter's arrival and destruction. Then a group of heavily armed, camouflaged exosuits came out of nowhere and started to sedate everyone once their perimeter security was compromised. The security was probably a lot better back when the Warpers were attacking them.

    Yes, but why was the bloody AIR SUPPLY not behind a million deadlocked blast doors?

    If you mean those who got the game early access, we get a cute fish. It's on the devs roadmap trello page.

    Now please stop spamming things irrelevant to the story, if you will.

    You're 1,200 metres down. If you actually live in this base, you're not going to be messing with your only air supply. Trust me.
    Most commercial and industrial A/C plants are only protected with a standard Yale lock, if at all. Might be a little harder to get in if the plant serves a bank's data centre, or is on a military base or something similar.

    I'd say a Torgaljin base guarding a godlike sea monster under their thumb qualifies as high security.

    But they're the villains with clearly no regard for life (Tomar, case and point), so I wouldn't be surprised if Life-Support would be low on (if not off) their priority list.

    'Security': An entirely subjective and somewhat misleading term, particularly when JUNO and chums can hip-check your base's hopelessly obsolete AI through the nearest firewall.

    If you absolutely must maintain the illusion of security, you're probably better off with a fluffy blue flannel 'Woobie'.

    It sounds like Torgalijin is using the Sea Emperor to create bioweapons. Having kept a mantis shrimp before, I can only imagine the destruction these enhanced rock punchers are capable of. Maybe try blocking (Or hijacking) the signal used to control them?

    As I said, should have used deadlocked doors. And of course, an outdated computer system with poor security is a bad security decision in itelf.

    are these things the 'aliens'?

    Sounds like they are Rock Punchers, with genetic and cybernetic implants so Torgaljin can control them.

    Torgaljin sounds like a greedy company, and greed tends to lead one to make bad decisions. Ignoring that, they've been stuck on this planet longer than Selkirk, so it's no surprise that their security systems are outdated.

    But deadlocked doors are the second security system ever invented, after heavy blunt objects...

    Picky-picky, @sayerulz .
    Ever wondered what a futuristic weapon like a Gauss cannon could do to a deadlocked door, no matter how sturdy?

    Incidentally, Phoenix223 completely nailed it. The base's security systems and AI are totally obsolete.

    I suppose that reflects the issue I see with most modern militaries: everyone is making new weapons, but they have all been able to kill everyone else with a single shot for ages, with no decent defences against them, meaning it boils down to who shoots first, wether the gun is ten days old or ten years.

    I mean, I don't think upgraded and very high security would be worth the money in Torgaljin's eyes. They are a few thousand metres below sea level on an unexplored alien world that not a lot of people know about, and if people do come lurching to the planet its likely that the warpers will just fill their ships reactors with a few gallons of seawater. So I think you would be relatively safe. Who would expect a fleet of cyclops and 4 heavily armed exo-suits to be knocking at their door.
