>What are everyone's thoughts on a force composition?
Cloaking, cloaking, and more cloaking? Unless we have the resources for a massive campaign, and we don't, we're not going to be able to get through them all without a bloodbath. We don't even know how to make whatever it is work, if it will actually do anything, or if it's somehow linked to the natives in functionality.
We might consider talking to them about the matter. Or talking to Uni-Peace, sending them some footage of the virus consuming everything, and asking them to talk to the natives and fill us in on what the hell, with the penalty for noncompliance being another instance of what we gave their people around their Gaia mech.
If that fails, we send in the ninjas. Come to think of that, we should research techno-ninjas.
