A few more unordered thoughts:
- Man, Androzani Major's military must be permanently undergoing a funding crisis. First they couldn't manage to clear a few dozen androids out of a cave system in order to secure their most treasured natural resource, and now they send overweight bunglers to guard their fuel sources. Two soldiers in full armour can't overpower a civilian with a service revolver? Please. I presume they're only using acid rain to melt the forest because none of them can be trusted to swing an axe without disemboweling themselves.
