Once you've met the mission requirements, Ozu contacts you with
new information on the ProteusTome. You're instructed to meet Ozu
inside the bar on the Blood Dragons' base, Kyoto. If you've been completing
missions in surrounding systems, you must return to the Chugoku system. You
could reach there from the jump hole in the Honshu system. If you must move
through Honshu space, be careful using the game's waypoint system. Mines litter
the area to the left of the Chugoku jump hole. It's wiser to avoid waypoints and
approach the jump hole from the right. Dock with the Chugoku jump hole and fly
to Kyoto Base. Dock with the Blood Dragons' famous base hideout and enter the
bar to speak with Ozu and receive your primary objective.
Ozu says Governor Tekagi is alive, has secretly left his
palace, and has hidden the artifacts, along with the Proteus Tome. The
only hope is to attack Tekagi's heavily fortified base and steal the Tome
from Tekagi's control. Tekagi's fortress is only one system away; the Blood
Dragons discovered a hidden jump hole to there more than 20 years ago. But the
governor is preparing to leave his fortress, so time is short. Launch to space
after receiving your mission objective, and receive waypoint coordinates from
Ozu. Select the waypointthe Tohoku jump holeand activate cruise engines. Juni
makes contact as you and Ozu proceed toward the Tohoku jump hole. She warns
against such a suicidal assault on Tekagi's defended base. But Ozu notes there's
no time left; Tekagi is preparing to leave for Rheinland and the Proteus Tome
must be acquired before it's too late. Upon reaching the waypoint, dock with
the Tohoku jump hole and enter the new system.
The Blood Dragons have another hidden base in this system:
Ryuku Base. Ozu notes that the system is littered with defense systems and
hidden patrol wings, so maneuver to the Blood Dragon hideout as quickly as
possible. Select the waypoint and activate cruise engines.
A wing of Blood Dragon fighters greets you and Ozu at Ryuku
Base. Ozu uploads a new waypoint to your Neural Net. Select the waypoint in your
Contact List and use the Go To maneuver to proceed toward Tekagi's
fortress. A patrol of Kusari naval fighters interrupts your advance. You'll face
six Kusari naval fighters. Engage the closest one. Be conservative with your
ammunition. Further battles await you at Tekagi's base, so it's wise to hold
onto as many missiles, mines, nanobots, and shield batteries as possible.
Eliminate the entire patrol before receiving your next objectiveresume course
toward Tekagi's base. It's built around a magnificent arch that once was one of
the wonders of Kusarinow it's a fortress for a corrupt and debased
Ignore the Kusari naval fighters as you approach Tekagi's
stronghold. The Blood Dragon escorts will occupy them, allowing you to close in
on the base. The easiest and most spectacular approach to the base is through
the cylindrical stabilizer, an enormous channel that runs vertically through the
asteroid base. Fly toward the bottom of the base and turn upwards; you can't
miss it. The stabilizer is filled with charged energy pulses, but they are too
weak to affect your ship.
A shield protects Tekagi's arch. In order to enter the fortress
and get the Tome, you'll have to destroy four energy generators that are
located on the outer surface of the spherical shield. Beware of the defense
turrets located on the underside of the arch and the Kusari capital ship that
guards one side of the shield. You may find it easier to destroy the Kusari
vessel before taking on the generators, but make sure not to tangle with both
the capital ship and the turrets at the same time.
Once all four generators are destroyed, dock with Tekagi's base
and capture him. If you come under attack, divert your fire from the generator
and engage the incoming Kusari ship. Then return to the damaged generator and
continue firing. Strafe around the base of the shield to locate and destroy all
After the shield falls, select and dock with Tekagi's base. You
and Ozu penetrate the base's inner defenses (blasting a couple of Tekagi's
soldiers along the way). Ozu locates the room containing the Proteus Tome.
But it's a trapa device releases neural gas into the room, which
incapacitates the two of you. Governor Tekagi and a couple of armed bodyguards
enter and rouse you. It quickly becomes apparent that the governor is under the
control of an alien force Tekagi kills Ozu in cold blood! The rogue governor
has nearly finished you off, too, when Lord Hakkera bursts into Tekagi's
fortress in a fighter and rescues you. Tekagi is killed by Ozu's final explosive
revengeand you manage to procure the Proteus Tome, to boot!
Select the waypoint to the Chugoku jump hole and activate
cruise engines. You meet up with Juni just in time; the Kusari naval forces,
formerly under the command of the deceased Tekagi, aren't pleased about the
governor's death. Target the nearest Kusari fighter and engage. Steer clear of
the Kusari gunboats during the battle. If you come under fire from a gunboat,
shift targets and destroy the gunboat with your guns and missiles.
After the battle, Lord Hakkera explains what happened to Tekagi: The wretched
governor was taken over by a Nomad, a member of an alien race with the
ability to possess humans. While you're mulling this over, continue to the
waypoint and approach the jump hole to the Chugoku system. Once you reach it,
dock with the jump hole and enter the Chugoku system. Select the next waypoint
(it's the Blood Dragons' hideout) and activate cruise engines to proceed to
Kyoto Base. Dock at the base to complete the mission.
