A shocked Amelia charges towards the factory, not believing that almost everyone she knows has just perished. Coughing, Zik emerges from the gloom and consoles her as well as he can. The reality is that the firebombs inside the factory that preceded the demolition would have immolated anyone inside. No one could survive that… or could they?

Zik’s horror is multiplied as the inside of the factory starts to explode! Multiple detonations engulf the entire interior in flames! He turns to run when the whole building is consumed by a massive explosion, leveling the entire structure! Did our hero get far enough away? Or has he been caught up in the blast and crushed by the rubble?
So now we see how the EVR system works! EVR stands for Extra-Vehicular Rescue. Basically, if you’re ejected into space, you can use the boots to give you a propulsion boost and the grappling hook to attach yourself to a ship of some kind. It’s a hail Mary sort of system, but it’s better than drifting in space till you freeze to death! And yes, I know, Zik doesn’t have a face mask on — he doesn’t always wear it. When we get into some real space combat scenes you’ll see the face mask part of Zik’s costume. It’s a bit like what fighter pilots wear today.
