He looked over to Fitzpatrick who nodded. She proceeded to use her skill to move through the floor beneath them. There, she saw another corridor running parallel to the one they were in.

"Clear."

The adrenaline was coursing through their bodies. They grit their teeth, clenched their jaws, and stared into the darkness with wide eyes before duck walking to the dropdown. When O'Hara landed, he looked forwards and backwards.

"Clear, " he grunted. One-by-one, they all dropped down. "Next, we move in the opposite direction forty feet to a small compartment." It slowly dawned on him that the home world was a living beast and the queen was part of it. Maybe the heart or brain, O'Hara thought. "Move out."

At the end of the hike, they reached a hatch with a spiraling pattern of chitin. O'Hara and Swain stood on opposite ends. Fitzpatrick yoked it open, and they filed in at angles while DeReaux covered their center. Beams of light crisscrossed as they took their posts.

The next door was a mere twelve feet away. The size of the rooms and halls indicated that no large Lokians traversed the area, but they had to be on lookout for smaller scouts or repair drones, or whatever oddities Lokians had. Swain spotted several holes in the walls along the ceiling as he ran his light over the entire room.

The Lokians stumbled from the ceaseless onslaught. Their shoulders, thighs, faces, everything froze over; cracking and gushing, ooze sprayed every which way. O'Hara ended it by pointing his photon gun, squeezing the trigger, and blowing the assailants to trash with just a few beams.

"That's what I'm talkin' 'bout, " Swain strutted around.

"C'mon, Swain, we gotta' move, " O'Hara chuckled.

"Can I make a weapon, or can I make a weapon?"

"Go, lummox, " Fitzpatrick groaned.

Jogging onwards while the agents snickered and Day and Nandy made awed comments about the weapons, O'Hara spotted a dead end. It was something like a chitinous, bay door, ribbed, and it spanned indefinitely above and out wide. He turned to the crew.

"What now, " Day yelped.

"No problem. Swain! Blow that thing down, " O'Hara ordered.

He stepped back and motioned with his head for everyone to get away. "Time to T.C.B., baby, " Swain yelled.
