Amy peeked over the stone blocks to look at the tank approaching them. The tank’s gun was turning and lowering to fire at them. The tank, and the troops behind it, wanted to capture the pillar behind her. The base defenders were doing what they could, but they had no weapons that could kill a tank. Amy had offered to use her powers to disable the tank. Now she just had to do it without getting them all killed.
The assault on the base was by The Organization, ruthless criminals that wanted to use the pillar to send modern military forces out into a galaxy that was mostly back to the age of swords and shields.
One of the powers shown to Amy by Staff, an alien who spoke to her through the walking stick she held, was to reduce the mass of an object, making it weightless. Amy was certain that the ‘mass minimum’ command would disable the tank, but she’d never done anything that big before. With the tank disabled, the base defenders had a good chance at repelling the attack.
