 +  * Scene 2: Driven to Distraction

 +    * Zaous is brought low, and the Tiger is triumphant.
 +    * Eight takes a souvenir.
 +    * Mauthus II begins a long and painful rebirth - but how ancient are the Ancients?
 +
 +===== Quotes =====
 +
 +  * [[Jon Hector]]: Do you shoot it to switch it on, or switch it off?
 +  * [[Xiao Ling]]: When he's fascinated by an object he counts as an innocent.
 +
 +===== Continuity =====
 +
 +  * Brilliant inventive ideas of [[Jon Hector]] needlessly shot down as overly complicated and hazardous to life and limb.  In this case:
 +    * Modifying the GravChute of the cargo pod to discharge all its energy in a giant leap at a modified handscanner as a location beacon (for when a safe location was found for the pod to land)
 +    * Having [[Dirk Richter]] sneak the handscanner into the lair of the big bad and circumventing the loss of peasant army lives with this makeshift suborbital weapon.
