I get to reintroduce the staff. And they bring gifts this time!

Next mission Crops Up, too.

We ride for the crops.
Get out filthy Men in Black.
This pot is our pot!

And an edvertisment interrupts our flight as we figure out the latest in Alien Engineering: the iDucttape and iWD40.

Turn 1.

We find out that it is the regular farmer mission and no MiBs or Zombies show up.

Outcome is fine:

In other news, we finished building "Inject Anaboles here" locker and we can finally buff the crew.

Next mission will be a Dagonist Outpost.

I will wait for the Bio-Enhancements before sending the team.

Chapter 17: The age of the Dragonfly.

And finally the big thing has been researched. The Dragonfly is here giving us huge range with 8 people. Once I get the Osprey I should switch chapters.

Only loss is night ops flexibility. The dragonfly has those ridiculous headlamps that we just cannot shut off.

So let's do a night op.

Turn 1.

They forgot to bring Dynamite. Similar starting positions have resulted in some huge agent attrition from explosives.

Turn 3.

A new plan. We will need to deploy smoke and find a dark corner.

So, after another saving incident in Gimp, here we are.

Turns 8-9

I gradually whittle them, notice a neat new feature and capture a Chosen of Dagon.
