CentCom is dead.
Your crew is left alone. Stranded on Station 13 to continue their duties without support or contact from the outside galaxy. Alone to fight off the endless waves of Hivebots mindlessly trying to destroy all life on board.
Not all is lost, before CentCom was overrun by Hivebots, they tell you the origin of these destructive beings. The only way to end their slaughter is to take the fight to their home world.....
You assemble your research teams to develop weapons and materials for exo-suits. You have your miners prepare minerals for a base of operations in the assault. Finally, you recruit men who are brave enough to fight against an uncountable force.
Your men are lined up, the smell of oil and grease from the exo-suits fill the hallway. Each man tends to his equipment for the first assault. The radio crackle's with the busy technician's chatter, installing more cloning pods to handle the incoming death toll. You load up the engineering crew first. The Hive won't notice you until a major power source is enabled on their planet. Leaving a good amount of time to set up a forward base with good defenses.
The technician gives you a questioning look, standing in front of the PACMAN generator. You nod, he flips the switch. The base computers come online: cameras begin to scan the area, turrets silently but actively defend the outside of the base.
The Hive immediately notices your presence and in 10 minutes, a wave of bots swarm towards you. Your men prepare their weapons, and charge into battle......
A nice scenario I thought would be neat. In ss13, the crew has always been on the defensive. I thought it would be a nice change of pace to switch things around a bit. To win, you have to destroy the Hive Core, the map could be a simple square area with the core in a small little cave protected by a large swarm of hive bots. I also thought it would be neat to have the players function together to set up an outpost on a distant planet with the accumulated resources from the station. Actually give the engineers something to do other than play with the power supply and patch up holes from suicide bombers.
