Raynor's vulture sped towards the zerglings. He could hear the marines firing, but apparently they weren't used to fighting at such speeds. Their bullets were mostly missing, occasioningly scoring a lucky hit. Jim and Dan, however, were by no means strangers to speed combat, and were accounting for several zerlings.
As the last few zerglings fell, Jim stopped his vulture and grinned back at Toni. "That was one of the requirements for this job!." As he took off his helmet, he stopped grinning. None of the militia had suffered casualties, but from up close, the structure was pulsing as if it was alive. Signaling a few of the firebats who had come along, Jim gestured towards the... thing, adding, "Burn it, boys." As he waited for the firebats to destroy the organic building, Jim got out his binoculars agin, looking towards Backwater. "The main buldings look intact, but I can't see any living creatures, terran or zerg. There are a bunch of dead zerg, but I don't really see that many terrans. If they were smart, theyd've holed themselves up in those bunkers. I doubt that these critters would get tired, but they might have been driven off. Stay careful, boys and girls, we got some militia to rescue."
As the Jim and Dan advanced, the soldiers on foot behind them, Backwater seemed mostly intact. he walked up right past what should have been manned defenses, before trying a locked bunker door. "Where is everybody?"
Aaron pulled weakly at the hunks of debris that had fallen all around him as that section of the building collapsed. He'd been lucky. Coming in from patrol duty just then, he had had his armour on. Otherwise he'd have been so much mashed Terran.
He heard voices and felt a small kindling of hope. Activating his comm link he made an attempt to contact any Terran that might still be alive.
The static cleared.
"Help...please...anyone..." Aaron said hoarsely into the comm. "Please..."
Raz speaking frimly, "Well I've been living under what you've been calling Backwater for the past six months. I have tried to get this brood to stop attacking but they are under control by a Terran force and attacked me so I took to the ground for the past six months." Pauses for a moment and sniffs around. "Why are more of your kind comming here?" Raz asked questioningly
"Yes they are using a psiemitter to do it" Raz paused "...They are also trying to make hybrids...of zerg and terran also zerg and protoss." Raz sniffed around again. "Theres a large force comming are you expecting a very large force?" Raz asked confusingly
