They're your responsibility now, don't let them down!

Captain Hollister was the captain of the Aurora. They were last heard on the Aurora, ordering Second Officer Keen to regroup any survivors at the Floating Island. Hollister sacrificed his own life to control the Aurora's descent, ensuring that the Aurora remained as intact as possible so that any remaining crew would be able to contact Alterra with its radio systems.

Story

Ryley Robinson is required to access Hollister's personal quarters in order to obtain the blueprints for the Neptune Escape Rocket, which happened to be the only functioning computer on the Aurora.

CAPTAIN: Keen! This is Aurora, come in!

KEEN: This is Keen, lifepod detached okay, planetfall in 30 seconds!

CAPTAIN: The computer has identified a landmass at the attached coordinates! I want you to regroup the crew there!

KEEN: Understood, but-

CAPTAIN: They are your responsibility now, don't let them down!

KEEN: Captain, you need to evacuate!

CAPTAIN: Negative, you'll need the ship in one piece if you're going to contact HQ on the long-range. I'm attempting a controlled descent.

Loading program: CraigMcGillSimulator.vrat

Size: 1 player (Cap'n 'Hot Dog' Hollister)

Map: Boreal 9

Resources: Normal

Your are exploring a quiet alien backwater when the ship you arived here in implodes.  It must be the aracnid kidney-poachers! Quick, what will you do?
  [Search the crash site]
->[Farm alien plants]
  {Use the tectonic de-imploder (unavailable)}

That's just what Craig McGill would do. After foraging for some hours you have collected a number of potentially farmable foodstuffs. Which will you sustain yourself with?

  [Stankroot]
  [Tree-roaches]
->[Starwal eggs]

While the starwal eggs are nutritious, the lifecycle of these vast, space-fering creatures is much too slow to sustain a farm, and besides, their mother is extremely angry with you.
  [Fight the starwal]
  [Apologize to the starwal]
->[Accept your fate]

Craig McGill knows that there is no reasoning with a mother scorned. You are not so much torn apart as swallowed whole and disintegrated. The atoms you thought were YOU are gradually redistributed in service of the starwal's continued survival.

Would you like to continue?
  [Yes]
->[No]

Trivia

  • Captain Hollister's name is possibly a reference to the British comedy television show Red Dwarf, which also featured a Captain Hollister.
