Even with the mutant Pfhor controlling the enslaved S'pht compilers destroyed, the floaty red guys are still reluctant to help us out, and we're still trapped on the alien ship. I guess Durandal has forgotten all about us.

Gameplay starts at 01:17.

We finally reach the mutant Pfhor that is controlling the S'pht compilers, and discover ever more Bobs trapped in the slimy, wriggling walls.

Durandal has decided that the key to defeating the Pfhor is to deprive them of their enslaved allies, the S'pht compilers. We are returning to the Pfhor scoutship to destroy a mutant Pfhor that controls the S'pht slaves and free them. Viva la revolution!

Gameplay starts at 01:25.

Durandal so appreciates our killing skills (hey, it's great somebody does!) that he wants us to come back to the Marathon and do some more of it. We'll even have some "help" of a sort, in the form of defense drones now armed with (loaded) grenade launchers. Friendly fire indeed!

Still on board the Pfhor scout ship, we've been ordered by Durandal to collect snapshots and corpses. We're more than willing to oblige, even if some of the corpses are our own.

Failing to find him among the humans on the Marathon, Durandal has sent us back to the Pfhor scoutship to try and save Bernhard Strauss. There's still no indication of which one of these exploding BoBs he was; the Pfhor are keeping the real and fake ones all mixed together, which adversely affects their life expectancies.

Blackstar and Narcogen's experimental teleporters have malfunctioned, stranding them in a strange world where the only constants are deadly green slime and being shot at by everything and everyone they encounter. Where have they gone, and how can they get back?

Back on board the Marathon, Durandal gives us a pat on the back and then sends us back into the bowels of the colony ship, looking for a "friend" of his-- Bernhard Strauss. But not everything is as it {}seems {}seems {}seems and before we can locate Strauss, the connection is interrupted-- ***JUMP PAD ACTIVATION INITIATION START*** ***TRANSPORT WHEN READY***

Durandal has sent us on a fact-finding mission to the Pfhor scout ship, where we find a strange new class of alien wielding a fearsome weapon, as well as eerie objects, dripping slime, and frozen (and not so frozen) Hunters. Will we make it back to the safe confines of the Marathon colony ship?

Durandal's Rampancy seems to have progressed into some kind of mental disability, as he is no longer able to spell his own name, or to give us instructions of any kind, helpful or otherwise. He does, however, have some terrible plans for us in the near future...

Durandal is promising us a special device to help us kill more Pfhor. Should we believe him? Do we have a choice? Yeah, I thought so.
