Yeah, they had been lucky when this one mixed. She circled the edge of the crater and shook her head at the size of the meteor. Why the hell didn’t this place have some kind of laser defense system?

Her fingers traced the surface of the rock before bunching into a fist and she gave the thing a punch to test its strength. Last object she saw that landed here had been made of something much tougher than it had any right to be and she was satisfied when a small dent where her fist had hit its surface revealed that no, they were being hit by regular meteors. At least they had that in their favor, besides the fact that this one had missed the vital points laying outside the facility.
