The Hexapoidal Predator charges the group from 20 yards away and closes quickly. Jameson opens fire with his gatling rifle injuring it slightly. Dr. DS shoots her laspistol at it and scores some hits while the engineer hides behind the Major. It charges forward through the center of the group running down the Major and knocks him sprawling while Alex throws himself out of the way into a crouch. Jameson jumps out of the way from a passing tentacle and it misses its swing on the Doctor. Jameson turns and takes the time to aim. The Major rolls to his stomach and takes aim with his Gauss rifle, Doc takes her shots and shoots it in the legs slowing it down to a limp. Alex takes his shot but shoots wide. The creature starts dragging itself away but we decide to end it so it doesn’t bring back friends. Jameson takes his shots and injures it some more. The Major lines up his shot and blows a hole through its lower torso and then blows its head into fine red mist. Doc scans the critter to get some info and some samples so she can make some notes about it. The doc bandages his wounds and they continue on toward the site.
