Apparently, she's an agent sent by a sect of the church that worships the Slithzerikai as gods. They were infiltrated onto the crew (using magical disguises) when it was heard that Charles was sniffing around after a major Slithzerikai artefact like the Judge, and now that their glorious lords have returned, she won't let these idiots fuck it up. She intends to hand over Charles and his friends as tribute, and prostrate herself before her resplendent gods.
A tense stand-off ensues, and Charles, true to form, begins to antagonise the woman with the knife to his throat like fucking crazy. Hatori has a gun pointed at, but can't shoot because Charles is in the way, and nobody else is willing to act; so eventually, after the woman demands that Charles stop making stupid remarks he replies "But they're so much fun" and slaps the red alert.
I stop, look at the player, and say "You do know what's going to happen to him, right?" The player nods and says "Yeah, but it's a good way to go."
The monomolecular knife takes Charles' head clean off, and the woman, moving with supernatural speed, is out of the room before Hatori can get a shot off.
However with the hostage gone, everyone starts moving. Hatori grabs Freya and Tarsis, and the three of them make a run for the hanger. Marie and Popo decline to come with, choosing to remain on the bridge.
The Warren T Void engages the Slithzerikai vessels, and brutal hit and run battle begins. Taking fire, the ship is pretty soon starting to fall apart, and vital systems begin failing all over the place. Gravity goes down pretty early on, and Freya, Hatori and Tarsis have to move hand over hand to the hanger.
Arriving at the hanger bay, they prepare to board Freya's ship, when Hatori turns to see the infiltrator flying straight down the corridor towards them. He turns, kisses Freya, and with a "Go. I love you", hurls her towards her ship, draws his sword, and turns to face his attacker.
