We've been kidnapped by the rampant AI, Durandal! With no information on where we are or what we're supposed to be doing, we have to survive and escape to continue to fight off the Pfhor invaders. It seems Leela thought that there were some weapons here to find, but Durandal says we're looking in the wrong place...

In order to send a message to Earth 92 light years away, Leela needs us to reactivate the Marathon's antenna array. Only one problem: the G4 Sunbathing Loading Dock has been plunged into vacuum rendering some of our weapons useless, and is teeming with Pfhor fighters, troopers, hunters and S'pht compilers. We have to make our way to the antenna while dodging enemy fire and keeping an eye on our oxygen meters. Wish us luck!

Leela's going to flush us out into the cold, hard vacuum of space to fight the Pfhor, but not before she leads us to a cool new gun. We'll have to watch out, though, because while playing in co-op mode made getting the flamethrower a cinch, it can present particular problems when escaping this level.

Leela wants us to close some doors so she can kill a bunch of Pfhor by decompressing a section of the Marathon, but before she gets to that, we've got a better use for the oxygen-- laying fiery waste to alien invaders with the TOZT-7 flamethrower!

The Marathon's crew are under vicious attack from the Pfhor and their massive allies, the gargantuan Hulks! We must save as many crewmembers as possible... or not. Armed only with sticks, stones, and harsh language (redacted) Blackstar and Narcogen muddle their way through this horticulturally themed Marathon level.

Durandal has gone Rampant, and is in contact with the Pfhor and S'pht aliens currently infesting the Marathon! Leela wants us to flip some switches that will apparently help with... something. Not really sure what. Of course, before the switch-flipping comes the Pfhor-killing, and there's plenty of that to do in this level, including the new variant mentioned last episode by Leela-- the Pfhor Trooper.

Leela has produced three chips to replace the damaged ones and reactivate Marathon's automated defense system. On the way, Narcogen and Blackstar notice similarities in both enemy and level design between Marathon and Halo.

Narcogen and Blackstar play Level 3 of Bungie's classic sci fi shooter, Marathon: Never Burn Money. Leela tasks us with recovering three chips to repair the Marathon's defensive system, and on our own we attempt to reach an isolated and cryptic terminal that may hold the secret to the identity either of the mysterious security officer who is the player's avatar, or the even more mysterious door-controlling Durandal we have yet to meet.

We've gotten some useful feedback on past episodes, and I'll just acknowledge it here:

Blackstar and Narcogen continue playing through the classic Bungie scifi shooter and precursor to Halo, Marathon.

Special thanks again to Craig Hardgrove for his excellent soundtrack remixes.

Wait after the credits for a short bonus of one (easy) grenade hop and the infrared goggles.
