With the internal security situation continuing to worsen on Gordon's Gamble, the planetary governor has requested additional support. Task Force JUNIPER has been dispatched, and is working in conjunction with local security forces to try and counteract rebel activity.
Here a marine DropShip skims in low over the forest near Bailey's Beacon. Intelligence has pinpointed a small rebel group operating from some old mining buildings, and a strike detachment has been sent to investigate. Bailey's Beacon is the planet's main spacefield, and rebel forces cannot be allowed to operate this close.
The marines deploy from their DropShip into a small clearing. The DropShip will remain on-station in case emergency CASEVAC is required.
No sign of the Rebels yet - everything is quiet. The marines prepare to advance into the forest.
They run into a small rebel force as they approach the buildings. "Contact - wait, out!"
The rebels put up stiff resistance, but are armed mainly with shotguns and pistols.
The marines take cover and return fire. With assault rifles and squad automatic weapons, they have overwhelming firepower, and will soon prevail.
