Sighing inside my helmet I looked back at Jae as she asked about ways to stop the Reavers. "Headshots followed by decapitation would be one way. Another would be incineration to completely stop them or acidic compounds such as acid misting grenades and ammunition. I'd target their legs to prevent them moving quickly, but you'd still need to destroy brain function so the body stops. Though again, I'd simply cut their heads off after crippling them as mutations that've happened to them may allow them to reanimate themselves."
"Short version? Destroy the head and remove it, to completely stop them incineration as I said. At this point even if we were to blow the airlock in a section with them they'd survive since they no longer require oxygen. As it is there's a higher chance of running into more of them where we're headed next we'll be taking a cargo lift back by Crosswire down into the main gun batteries and cargo bay. When we get there I'm going to pop the casings on the explosive shells and rig them into a network of incendiary charges to purge all life aboard. Then I'll be transferring the firing trigger to a code in my gauntlet as well as a password. It'll allow us to safely begin stripping the research station while we make sure that this vessel will be completely empty. Then we send probes to begin deconstructing the ship for raw materials."
Having filled several bags with medical supplies and sealing them shut. I began moving back with Jae towards Crosswire. I really hoped he'd found something on those logs before we'd have to head down to the gun batteries and cargo bay. As it was once I'd reached Crosswire I grabbed the bag from Jae along with my own and began moving them outside of the ray shielding into the blackness of space. As the cargo crate was simply a few meters away from where we'd entered I launched a line at it and feeling it latch on I jetted over to it. Placing my hand over the bio-scanner keypad I felt the locking mechanism disengage and I pulled the door open. Pushing the bags of medical supplies into the cargo container I pulled the door back shut and sealed it.
Retracting my line I looked back at the ray shielding I'd exited from and launched my line back towards it. This time the line didn't catch and I hadn't engaged my mag-boots, engaging my thrust pack and the thrusters on my boots I made it back to the ray shielded opening and retracted the line. Once more passing through the shielding I looked towards Crosswire and Jae both before saying "Alright guys, Crosswire please tell me you've gotten something from those logs now? If so you can play it as we all hop aboard the cargo lift and head down to the main gun batteries and cargo bay. We can't exactly be picky in how we spend the time aboard here we'll have to make good use of the time we've got left aboard here not to mention topping our oxygen off should we come across any oxygen re-breather tanks."
