The lightweight black body armour stopped much of the laser power, but not all of it. Akrins, Matlock and Danders were hit, but not enough to stop them defending themselves. Six of the spheres were destroyed, one still firing spasmodically into the air.

Matlock did a dodging run at the alien ship, most of the robots shots either missing him, or taking chunks out of his armour. Danders and Akrins kept the spheres occupied, taking out another four. Matlock hurled himself through the open airlock, and was down on one knee, ready to burn off the head of any alien stupid enough to take him on. They were sitting together at the controls, working the few robots they had. They stopped when they saw Matlock, and both held their hands in the air.
