I was thinking attack the weather satellite because it's already too late to stop the alarm sounding so cause as much disruption as possible with the time we do have.

[score an A]

The twin fission beams meet at the point where the weather satellite tumbles gently through space and trigger a chain reaction which sunders the satellite, leaving nothing but the clear emptiness of space behind. The intruder detection satellite has homed in on you and it is guiding three surface-to-space missiles which streak towards you from the dull red world of Mechanon. You decide to use electronic counter measures, hoping to detonate the missiles before they meet you. This calls for precise judgement as you try to calculate their speed and course. Make an Attack Roll.

If you score 6-12...rolled 4 and 5, so:

Three orange flares flicker on your screen, then die away to nothing. You have caused the missiles to pre-detonate before they reach you and you dive down into the thin atmosphere of Mechanon, using reverse thrust to slow the Strike Fighter down.

As you approach the Central Computer Complex, which glows a ghostly luminescent green, in the midst of the dull red expanse of metal, you enter a freak ion storm. CAIN tells you that the ion storm renders his detection scanners useless. If the same is true for the scanners fitted to the wardroids you may be able to fly right into the complex undetected, but you will have to rely on sight alone to navigate. You slow to Mach 4 and dive down into the storm. Just as you begin to pull out, fearing that you may hit the top of a cooling tower or energy pylon, you burst out of the storm. The polished metal of the launch field glints redly beneath and the warfleet has not yet been launched against Earth. You slow further and line yourself up for the hangar entrance into the glowing green Central Computer Complex.

If you have not landed on Earth in 1986, then turn to:

166

Whilst you have been on Mechanon, a nuclear holocaust has ravaged Earth in 1986 AD. The nuclear winter caused by the dust which was flung into Earth's atmosphere was so severe that the whole world was covered in ice. Mankind was wiped out and you never existed. You have failed.

Huh...they could have had that back when you made the wrong decision instead of several sections later. Guess it made it hard for people with fingers in the last section.

So, going back to Earth instead, I take it:

359

Your ship out-accelerates the Mechanon starship and you match speed with it a fraction before reaching hyper-space velocity. You make the fine adjustments which will point you towards Earth and set the jump for a length of 9.36754 parsecs. You go into hyper-space together and the stars form a tunnel around you. Ahead the stars which shoot towards you are neon blue, at the sides they are long streaks of white and yellow, and as you crane your head backwards you can see that you are leaving behind stars which glow redly, at a breathtaking rate. Both ships leave hyper-space near the moon. You are four thousand miles behind and below the Mechanon starship. It is not responding to your presence, your radar dampers must be effective, if the droidship is scanning. You arm your missiles, ready to attack if the starship threatens Earth, but to your surprise, it merely discharges a small re-entry capsule, from its belly. The ship turns and accelerates, once more, apparently returning to Mechanon. Will you:

Turn and follow it?
Follow the re-entry capsule down?

Fuck.

Destroy the re-entry capsule, it's clearly pivotal to causing a nuclear holocaust. (Presumably caused by Earth nukes, otherwise Yelov would've gone "screw you guys" and extincted humanity back at Crecy.)

As you follow the capsule down, the flare of its re-entry licks towards you like a rocket exhaust and you use your retros to control your speed of descent. The capsule is too low and too near to a large city for you to risk attacking. It too has radar damping and you are forced to track it visually, cursing quietly as it leads you within five miles of a large 20th century airliner. Perhaps you look like a shooting star to its passengers. Hoping you have escaped notice you follow the capsule into the night side of Earth as its parachute opens, and set the Strike Fighter down in a field. You climb hastily out of your battlesuit and curse once more as you remember the Weeks/Senior Corpora-tion have not yet had time to install a hologram projector or molecular convertor. You ask CAIN's advice and he tells you that you are in Devon, a county in the democratic country of England, and that you might escape serious notice if you pretend to be an American film star in a cinematograph of the far-future, which the people of England would call a science fiction film. You jump down from the Strike Fighter and scan the area with your infra-red goggles. An android, it is too cool to be a human, is moving towards a stream of moving lights, one mile away. You run after him and in the lights, which turn out to be the front searchlights of combustion engined vehicles which roll along a tarmacadam strip, you see that the android looks like a man dressed in clothes from far history. Will you:

Follow the android?
Go back to sabotage the burnt out re-entry capsule?

Hmm, 1986 in Devon. A bit of googling tells me that...the guy that played Ozymandias in the Watchman movie was a kid living there at the time. Also, apparently Charles Babbage was from there, but the robot is a hundred odd years late to meet him.

You follow the android at a distance and it makes for a quiet village. It enters an old building which has a painting hanging outside it of two black horses pulling a four wheeled vehicle made of wood. You follow it inside, cautiously, and the building appears to be an ancient form of recreation centre. There are no vid-booths or massage machines but several men and women appear to be drinking enormous glass mugs of what looks faintly like urine. Some of them appear to be losing control.of their limbs. The android is talking to the man who serves the drinks asking in a flat voice for the use of a phone. You can see no holophones but your attention is momentarily distracted as a man staggers towards you and puts his arm on your shoulder. 'What have we got here then? Going to a fancy dress party?' You search your memory for the vid-lecture which dealt with late 20th century customs and history but all you can remember is that a dress is something worn only by women at this time. You shake your head and reply, mimicking his accent, that you are an extra from a science fiction film. 'A Star Wars chappie eh? Well, come and have a drink.' The android is walking to the back door. Will you:

Ignore the man and follow the android?
Say you have no 'money' and leave by the front so that you can walk round to the back unobserved?

Agreed.

Also, in 1986 there weren't any Star Wars films being worked on (maybe one of those stupid Ewok TV movies?), although it's entirely possible that this guy doesn't know that.

26 [score an H]
As you step out of the recreation centre your Remote Access Terminal bleeps and CAIN sends you a message. The android is hooking into the telephone network and changing the information reaching the Communist bloc defence computer which controls nearly half of the world's nuclear missiles at this time. You scale a wall and enter a courtyard in which there is a red and glass booth. The android is inside and you recognise an ancient 'tele'phone in its hand. He has fitted an unusual device to the transmitter. Will you:

Climb back over the wall and cut the cable which leads to the telephone booth?
Walk to the booth and yank the android out of it?
Use your blaster on the android?

(Wiki says the Ewok movies were already out by 1986. Unless Falcon has changed the past and there are more of them now. I'm also pretty sure you couldn't hack the "Communist Bloc" computer like that, especially as there wasn't one. Unless you are going to discount China for not having many nuclear devices and just go with the USSR.)

You have managed to cut through the telephone wire with your blaster and the android can no longer use the telephone booth.

As you look down it steps out of the booth and aims its stun-blaster at you. Will you:

Jump down on the far side of the wall and run across the fields?
Jump down and attack the android hand-to-hand?
Use your blaster on it?

The bolt of superheated plasma plays across the android and at explodes. The blast knocks you off the wall, lose 3 Endurance points. If you are still alive, you regain your senses to the sound of a siren, like that of an Enforcer's jetcopter whining nearby, and two men in navy blue uniforms run towards you from the recreation centre. Still groggy, you jump for the wall and try to scramble over before they catch you. Make an Evasion Roll.

If you score 7-12, turn to 135
If you score 2-6, turn to 127

Got 1 and 2, so:

127

You make it over the wall but as you set off down the tarmac strip towards your Strike Fighter you are blinded by the sudden flare of the searchlights of a machine called a car for a moment before your flash dampers cut in. Two more men in blue uniforms get out and one of them manages to hurl himself at you so that you lose your footing and fall to the ground. He is on top of you and you decide to use your Power of Will. Make a
Power of Will Roll.

If you score 7-12, turn to 204
If you score 2-5, turn to 158
2 and 2, so:

Your attempt to control the 20th century policeman has failed He is determined to take you to the local enforcement station All you can do now is to jab your elbow into his side and try to disable him using your skill at unarmed combat. Make an Attack
Roll.

If you score 5-12, turn to 314
If you score 2-4, turn to 169
Got a 3 and 5, so:

The policemen have had only a little training in unarmed combat and you manage to stun them and escape across the fields, setting out towards your Strike Fighter.

You call CAIN on your Remote Access Terminal and it sends out a homing signal to you. It is an easy matter to locate your Strike Fighter in the dark and, once comfortably inside, you engage the Ion Drive and hurtle into the night sky. Within a half hour you have left Earth's atmosphere and cut in the hyper-drive, accelerating to light speed and beyond in seconds, bound for Mechanon.

You rematerialise two hours out from the dull red planet Mechanon, you are travelling at four-tenths light and are well Out of the range of the intruder detection satellites.

325
Nearest you, on the radar, is what can only be a weather control satellite - it has seeding pods and chemical condenser beams to generate clouds and rainfall. CAIN tells you that Mechanon, before the arrival of the Danikoi, was ravaged by terrible ion storms and hurricane-force winds. But the weather control satellites prevent these.

As you approach the weather satellite CAIN chimes again: 'Look at the radar. Falcon.' There is an intruder detection satellite beyond the weather controller. It has already detected the Strike Fighter's ion drive and beamed a message to the Central Computer on Mechanon. Your twin fission tubes are ready to fire. Will you turn them against:

The intruder detection satellite?
The weather control satellite?

There is a picture here

Back here again. Also, the game really didn't want you to get captured by the police.

Yeah, interesting that this time we get to pass a better-than-evens roll once out of three to escape game over.

Weather control like last time we were here.

We scored a letter grade the last time we chose the weather satellite, didn't we? That's usually a good thing (unless it's the standard grade you get when you're killed), so yeah, go with that again.

You slow further and line yourself up for the hangar entrance into the glowing green Central Computer Complex.

257
As the yawning mouth of the hangar entrance looms towards you, you slow down to decide how to enter the complex. Suddenly a missile as large as your Strike Fighter flashes out of the dark opening. It is so close you can actually make out a huge array of electronic sensors at its tip. Will you:

Bank the Strike Fighter and gun it skywards?
Use electronic counter measures?
Fire your twin fusion beams at it?

Take counter measures. A missile that size will probably wreck our ship even if it doesn’t score a direct hit, or is blown up.

Agreed on the assumption that it'll explode nearby instead of zooming past if we dodge.

The missile has sophisticated jamming systems and your counter measures have not worked. You have no choice now but to fire your twin fusion beams, before it hits you. Make an Attack Roll.

If you score 6-12, got 4 and 4, so:

Your fusion beams set the missile off but it explodes too close to you for comfort. The forward scanner screen is filled with rolling jets of flame and the ship rocks, its gyros whining. Your ship's defences have lost another 2 points (Armour or Shields).

351

You surge forward towards the Central Computer Complex and the cavernous mouth of the hangar lined with space-artillery. A huge cavernous tunnel stretches away beyond the hangar mouth and a motley assortment of droids are being repaired at intervals along it. Three rails run the length of it, some distance from the floor. A huge access portal opens briefly and an Atmospheric Interceptor zooms out of it towards you. If you have the Main Access Code, you may turn to the paragraph number given for it. If you would like to fly on down through the immense arcing span of this tunnel, turn to 375. If you would like to blast a way through the Main Access portal, turn to 219, Or you could dive sharp left above the smaller tunnel which you walked down on your first visit to Mechanon and blast through the vaulted roof at the point where Bloodhound and Lynx rescued you.
