The hurried sound of booted footsteps echoed down the halls long before Tiara saw even the shadows of the squad of troopers sent to reinforce the checkpoint. Though they were tactically superior at the present time, the speed with which the entire squad rounded the final corner spoke volumes about their susceptibility to the kind of trap Tiara had laid.

Once the entire squad was in the corridor and vulnerable, Lieutenant Barnes opened fire. Tiara and Dafoe waited until the roar of the E-Web subsided before moving forwards to check the pile of bodies in the same way that the customs officers had previously with one major exception. They just shot the survivors instead of taking the time for interrogations. Barnes looked like he was going to object to their cold execution of injured and unarmed prisoners, but Tiara silenced the the not yet spoken objection with a sharp look in his direction.

"Captain Dafoe, command of WASP is yours until High Command sees fit to reassign you. Take a moment to assess the situation and lead us onward."
"Thank you ma'am," replied Dafoe, saluting, "but you still outrank me."
"Consider this your Major Promotional Aptitude Test."
"Aye ma'am. Thank you."

Dafoe took a moment, obviously considering the objectives and everything that had gone wrong thus far. After less than a minute, he spoke.

"Until we have direct confirmation that the Terminators failed in their objective, we should assume that this ambush was nothing more than luck on the part of the Customs and continue with the mission basically as planned. I will order the Terminators into four-man teams and have them search out and destroy combat personnel to make it easier for us."
"A sound plan," replied Tiara, "as the leader of WASP, I am temporarily conferring upon you the rank of Colonel. The success or failure of this missions rests upon your shoulders."
"No," replied Dafoe, "we are a team. We will succeed or fail together. Now, move out. We will not have the element of surprise for very long, if we have it at all."

Tiara, Barnes and Dafoe moved quickly through the corridors, their weapons at the ready. Aside from the odd civilian, they encountered no resistance from weapon-carrying hostiles. Far from reassuring them, it increased Tiara's sense of unease. Around every corner she expected to see a squad of troops clustered around an E-Web, ready to snuff out the resistance.

By Tiara's count, seven to one had increased to twenty to one, but was now hovering around 13 to one however this didn't take into account casualties caused by the Terminators. There was only one way to find out whether or not they were facing any more combat personnel.

She started paying attention to the directional signs, looking out for any sort of security center. It didn't take long to find one. The trio entered the room, holding their guns on the single, civilian-looking person sitting behind the only desk in the room. Tiara held her gun on the man, who stood up and collapsed almost straight away. She held back, levelling her gun at the space where his head used to be. Almost immediately, he appeared again, firing point blank at Colonel Dafoe, who dropped like a stone.

Tiara pulled the trigger once, splattering brains and skull fragments across the opposite wall. She reached over to pull Dafoe back to his feet.

"Apparently the armor works," he said with a sort of morbid detached interest.
"Apparently," replied Tiara, moving to look at the security camera screens. Almost all of them showed dead or dying customs officers, with two showing T-600s patrolling the corridors, weapons held at the ready.
"Colonel Tranada, monitor from here. We will proceed to the objective."
"Yes, sir," replied Tiara with a salut, "good luck."

After five minutes or so, Tiara managed to get life sign readings for the area around the operations center. It was surprisingly good news; only two guards on either side of the door. She called up a schematic and watched the progress of the two remaining WASPs by cross-referencing the cameras with a floor plan she managed to bring up after finding the password written on a scrap of paper in one of the desks.

As she observed, the team encountered a two person patrol and rather than discharge their weapons and give away their positions, they tucked into an alcove and knocked the patrol out as they passed. At this point they were only three corridors from the entrance to the operations center.

"Second corridor on the left," Tiara said into the comm, "two guards on either side of the door."
"Acknowledged," replied Dafoe, his tone that of grim determination.

They reached the final corner and waited for a few moments, before proceeding to eliminate the guards by the door. It took less than a second to take down both guards and it was done in such a way that Tiara doubted that the guards even knew what hit them. Unfortunately, those inside the door initiated a lockdown. Tiara tried to use her console to open the door, but she was locked out of the system.

"Attention T-600s One-Alpha and One-Bravo. This is Agent Tranada, authorization Stentax 666. Please report to Secondary Objective Alpha for new assignment."

It took almost fifteen minutes for the T-600s to arrive, but by the time they did, Dafoe knew exactly why Tiara had sent them. Like super-strong, super tough people, the T-600s began to pound on the door around the locking mechanism. Eventually, the area was mangled to the point where the lock no longer fastened and the droids were able to lift the door away. They entered the room to an unconditional surrender on the part of the customs officials.

Tiara wasn't surprised. After a quick look around the station, Tiara saw that only four Terminators had been damaged, with only one appearing irreparable through the cameras. She summoned another two Terminators to serve as an escort to the station, where she sent a transmission to the Secutor before opening a systemwide channel.

"Citizens of Kril'dor. As you may or may not have noticed, your customs station has come under the control of a foreign entity. They have surrendered unconditionally and now you must be asking what will become of you. I am here to assure you that very little will change for you. This system will be under the protection of the Svivreni Corporate Alliance, an entity which I assure you will do a better job than your now-defeated customs force.

We will have our own small operation that will not compete for your profits and you will be require to pay a small amount to the SCA in exchange for their protection. You will receive further updates in one hour."
