aww yeah, harvester surfing.
Corpses tend to make better ladders that you would think. Also giant mutant magic vines.
I love the expectation that the Titan would be aware of who is the senior officer, and would automatically assign control based on that. It would make sense, I suppose, to automate the transfer of command in a warship or fortress. I’m not so sure a mobile manufacturing facility would have the same protocols.
It would be surprising that the titan would not notify personnel that they had just been promoted.
“ding. You are now 3rd lieutenant. please report to deck 17″
“ding. You are now 2nd Lieutenant, please report to deck 5″
“ding. you are now 1st lieutenant, please report to flag deck” . . .
The sub-incantation was probably designed in expectation that only the transfer would be automated. They just didn’t consider a massive die-off in the planning phases, is all.
3 dings in short order would have me giving myself a battlefield promotion to “lifeboat pilot”
This is the best idea I’ve heard yet.
I’m having a Girl Genius flashback: http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20071207
Gil: “All I want is your commander!”
Soldier: “You hit him with lightning.”
Gil: “Ah. Second in command?”
Soldier: “Him too.”
Gil: “… Third?”
Soldier: “He was in the second machine.”
Gil: “*sigh* Fourth?”
Soldier: “That would be me, madboy!” (pulls knife, gets stabbed as a result)
Dimo: “Hoy! So, who else vants to be promoted?!”
