"Protect the alien defector" Mission
« on: October 05, 2013, 09:00:00 pm »
I'd be lying if I'd said that I fully understood the aliens in this game, but I still like to think that some of them (the ones that aren't being controlled by their overlords) may be having second-thoughts about wiping out the humans and may actually want to help humanity.  In this case PHALANX would benefit from rescuing the defector (boost to research and possibly a new branch of research) before it's former comrades and/or over-zealous humans get to him.

This really does not fit with the "hive mind" idea at all - sorry!

Okay, hive mind, got it.  Like I said, I didn't fully understood how the aliens worked.  I'll remember that.

Alternatively you could have a mission where you use a captured alien to tap into the hive mind to get information.
