Profit and Peril

Chapter 4i

The ancient construct known as The Whisperer emerges from the Polnia gas giant, its weapons blazing with strange dark energy, heading straight for Installation 17. You quickly board the Panoptes and head away from The Whisperer. The system ships there come to life and turn to intercept you. Void Wasps spring forth from the gas giant, speeding up incredibly fast towards you. The Whisperer passes over the Installation, unleashing a barrage of alien weaponry at it, causing massive explosions and fires. The Panoptes is set to flee the area as fast as she can go.

With a crackling in the Void, the Fist of Salvation and the Indefatigable emerge from the Warp, missiles and torpedoes launching with deadly accuracy, and maneuvering to bring their massive macrocannon broadsides to bear on the enemy. You turn and join the fight, and with the additional firepower, the Void Wasps and eventually The Whisperer succumb to your superior tactics.

With The Whisperer destroyed, the Polnia system transitions back from all the horrors and atrocities her residents have committed under its control.
