The Bad News Came After The Coffee

At the edge of known space, the rebellion found breathing space.
Here they found places to train, gather resources and plan. Some
garrisons were almost pleasant. On Lima 4 the garrison was
posted to protect a Helium 3 mining operation. Then something
was found in the hills and archaeologists were called in. Soon a
second platoon was sent in to bolster the garrison. Still, the
climate was good, and there was a saloon with some "local color"
and hot chow. The garrison even received regular shipments of
*real* coffee. One day after the morning coffee break,
it all fell apart...
