Human Union Interstellar Navy
" The room just fell apart. I saw a soda machine in the mess hall getting caught between one of the supporting beams and dozens of cans pouring out of it. Luckily, I had just dressed my vac suit and secured myself on one of the ceilings. I saw Hank getting sucked into space as all the air escaped the mess hall through a massive hole in the wall. I looked at my right arm and saw blood droplets floating above it. Something had cut my left arm, but luckily the liquid aramid of my skin suit had closed the tear. I felt my suit administer painkillers and stemcell med-gel on the wound, but still my hand was hurting bad. I couldn’t move my fingers – some of the tendons must have been cut, I thought.
I removed the hook securing me to the ceiling and grabbed my rail pistol with my left hand. It would only be minutes before the Shenzhou space assaulters would arrive with their vacuum assault armors. I began to drag myself towards the fire extinguisher near the soda machine. The magnetic gravity system had stopped working when we were hit and I saw all kinds of items floating in the room: pool balls, soda cans, Marcy’s coffee cup… I could easily float to my destination and as I arrived there, I attached my pistol back to its magnetic holster. I took the fire extinguisher from its holder and removed the safety pin while holding the extinguisher between my thights.
I toggled my vac suits visor to IR mode and immediately began to see the search lights of the Shenzhou assaulters scanning the room. With the vacuum in the room I couldn’t hear anything and the assaulters nearly got me surprised. From behind the crushed soda machine I saw three assaulters floating inside the room. Their rocket thrusters quided them slowly inside and they pointed their rifles forward. Laser rifles, just as I had hoped. I stucked the handle on the fire extinguisher and pushed it towards the assaulters. The extinguisher began swirling in the vacuum and spew out a cloud of white foam that quickly filled the room. The assaulters began shooting all over with their laser rifles, but their laser beams had trouble breaching the foam in the room, just as I had planned. I raised my rail pistol and began shooting towards them. I had trouble seeing them, but was quite sure I could hit them all.
After firing probably thirty or forty rounds I began to float out of my hiding place. I floated through the foam and found the three Shenzhou assaulters dead. I removed a rocket thruster pack from one of the assaulters and began to move out of the ship. There were other ships I could try to get to… "
