    I. The Game
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Thousands of years from now, humankind is driven by an insatiable thirst for 
    knowledge and a strong will to explore the farthest corners of the galaxy. 
    
    Earthling explorers armed with the ability to terraform entire planets and make
    the habitable will prepare these frontiers for human colonization. 
    
    At one such remote frontier sits the Seti-Alpha 5 Terraforming Station (SAT5), 
    a facility preparing its assigned planet for human habitation. 
    
    Its has been some time since the last interstellar communications were received
    from SAT5 and the top brass at Earth Command are concerned. 
    
    The CICEC (Commander in Chief, Earth Command) has decided to send the Starship
    USS Logos to investigate. 
    
    YOU ARE PART OF THIS MISSION.
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    II. Characters
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Lieutenant Aileen Harding (YOU):
    	A 21-year-old Lieutenant in the Earth Command, standing 5í6Ē with 
    shoulder length brown hair and green eyes, Lt. Harding has a lean, athletic 
    build and possesses great agility and strength. Orphaned at an early age, 
    Aileen was raised by her uncle, Captain Trevor James. After spending most of 
    her early childhood living on various military bases, Aileen enrolled in the 
    prestigious Earth Command Space Academy at 13. She easily out classed those 
    several years her senior with her combat proficiency and graduated with top 
    honors at the age of 16. Assigned to the Starship Kardis as her first post, 
    Ensign Aileen Harding served with distinction and rose quickly through the 
    ranks, becoming the youngest Lieutenant in Earth Command history at the age 
    of 19.
    
    Tom Tobin (your fiancťe)
    	Tom Tobin is an atmospheric engineer who has lived aboard terraforming 
    stations most of his adult life. On a recent furlough, Tom met a young woman 
    and the experience changed him forever.  On shore leave for six months while 
    the Starship Kardis was overhauled for repairs, the young engineer met and fell
    in love with Aileen Harding; a six- month whirlwind romance led to a marriage 
    proposal from Tom. They agreed that when Tom returned from the SAT5 Project in 
    three years they would be married. During the following two years of separation
    Aileen and Tom were in constant communication and their close bond grew even 
    stronger. 
    
    Captain Trevor James
    	The Captain of the Starships Logos is a dependable and honorable career
    military man. Known to be friendly and considerate, he nevertheless runs a 
    tight and disciplined ship. Captain James loves Aileen as a daughter and has 
    taken great care to raise her into a loving and compassionate human being. 
    Though strict with others under his command, he never has been able to 
    completely impose his will on Aileen.
    
    Commander Iris Hayes
    	In charge of the bridge crew as well as the day-today affairs of the 
    Logos, Commander Hayes is a highly organized and diligent professional. She has
    served Captain James and the crew of the Logos well during her tenure and is 
    renowned for always keeping the ship running in tip-top shape.
    
    The Alien Syndrome
    	The Alien Syndrome is a menace whose very touch can mutate man and 
    machine alike into unspeakable alien horrors. Some one hundred years ago, a 
    scouting party of the alien syndrome encountered Earth Command forces. Only 
    through the brave efforts of two Earth Command Soldiers, Trooper Ricky and 
    Trooper Mary, were the Earth forces able to repel the attack of the Alien 
    Syndrome. These events are chronicled in the original Alien Syndrome. 
    	Nobody could predict when the aliens would strike again, but when they
    did Earth Command would be ready. They knew that at some disputed barricade on
    the frontier of freedom, the time would come to join the battle. That time is 
    now. The Alien Syndrome has returned.

    VII. SCARAB
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    The best little, floating store in the whole galaxy. Plus he can shoot and 
    heal you. The Sentient Combat and Recycling Assembly Bot is by far the best 
    shop/companion for any PSP game I have play to date. The SCARAB has the ability
    to remove items you donít want, and turn them into Resource Points (RP). Using 
    RP you can have the SCARAB build weapons, armor, ammo, health packs or recharge
    packs. To remove an item, in the inventory screen press the Triangle button. 
    Word of Warning once you recycle an item you canít get it back unless you find 
    it again. Every 2 to 3 minutes or when ever you enter a new map the SCARAB gets
    new items. The SCARAB has only four upgrades, Attack power(increases the damage
    done), Firing Rate(how fast it can fire), Auto-Repair(Heals you), and 
    Auto-Recharge(Recharges battery). At any given time the SCARAB can have two 
    upgrades on, meaning you have to decide if you want him to fight or heal or a 
    mixture of both.
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    VIII. Combat
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    There are two types of combat, ranged and melee. Melee is the easiest of the 
    two. In melee all you have to do is run up to the enemy and hack away.  In 
    ranged you use a red line that extends from the direction that your character 
    is facing to aim. This can get tricky in the heat of battle, but the more you 
    play the better and fast you get at it. As you kill aliens they will drop 
    armor, ranged and melee weapons, SCARAB upgrades, neural adapters, ammo, RP, 
    and health and recharge packs. Each looks different from the other. Armor looks
    like a shield. Melee weapons look like a staff. SCARAB upgrades look like green
    rectangles with silver on the bottom. Neural adapters look like ďhelmetsĒ. All
    ammo looks like a pyramid. RP looks like a small square. Health packs looks 
    like a triangle with a red cross in the middle.  Recharge packs look like a 
    blue rectangle.  
    Melee Weapons: 
    	Regardless of weapon there are two types of attack light attack and 
    	hard attack.
    	Light attacks are the ďXĒ button.
    	Hard attacks are the Circle button.
    	You can do combos by using a combination of ďXĒs and Circles.
    Flame Weapons*: 
    	Flamethrower is an easy to use weapon. Just hold down the attack button
    	and strafe away from the alien. Uses 1 flame ammo.
    	Firebolt shoots out a fireball that explodes causing splash damage. 
    	Uses 2 flame ammo
    	Fragmentation Fireball** shoots out a fireball that explodes into 
    	smaller fireballs. Uses 4 flame ammo.
    	Flame Geyser shoot out three small grenade like objects, which engulf 
    	the alien doing massive damage, itís ineffective at close range. 
    	Uses 8 flame ammo.
    Energy Weapons:
    	Laser Rifle is very weak, but because it has no ammo you could just hold the 
    	fire button down, if you had a fast recharge.
    	Sonic Blast more powerful than the Laser Rifle and has the ability to knock 
    	back and stun. 
    	Reflect Laser just like the Laser rifle, but with an added bonus, it can 
    	bounce off walls.
    	Dispersion Laser shoots out 4 beams in 4 directions.
    Projectile Weapons:
    	Gauss Rifle is automatic it shoots about 3 rounds a second and does 
    	light damage.

    About leveling I have not put any points into dexterity with my Tank, but itís
    at 9. It looks like every 3 levels you get en extra point in a stat you
    Specialty uses.
    
    Because any character may use any save game, start a just from the very 
    beginning that way when you find something good, you can always save your game
    and open your item game. Dropped items will still be there when you load a 
    saved game. Its helpful for when you have too many items, but canít hold them 
    because of you low strength and weight max. 
    
    *Did you notice how all the flame weapons begin with ďFĒ?
    **The book says 3 smaller fireballs, but while playing I have counted up to 5.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    X. Walkthrough(I will not write down conversations or out lines of cinematic, 
    the reason is so that you have to play through the to find out why.)
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    This walk through will take you through every area on every map because this is
    and action RPG. Meaning that you need to kill every thing, find all the boxes 
    and chests. Period. Some of the steps you can skip, but I will not say which, 
    you must either, follow my guide or figure out which steps to skip.
    
    Rules:
    1. Directions will be used from where you start the map, so north is straight 
       ahead of you and south is behind you, etc...
    2. You can skip some of the steps because of them will take you off the trail 
       of the main mission. 
    3. This is a linear game there is only one exit, but the maps are big enough to
       hide boxes and chests in. Find them all for items.
    4. The best way to defeat minibosses if you ranged is to put on you shield and 
       just hold down the attack button and back up, if your melee put on you 
       shield and attack with strong attacks.
    5. You can always restart a map if you die or reload a save.
    6. The save points are those weird glowing crosses on the ground that when you
       step on them they center starts to make circles. These are also the 
       checkpoints.
    7. Your shield is your friend.
    8. Brake all boxes you can find.
    9. Open all chests you can find.
    10. Kill EVERYTHING, thatís an order Lieutenant.

    I need help with:
    Weapon descriptions
    Items and Names
    Walkthrough strategies
    Enemy strategies
    Boss strategies
    Have a rant you want to add: what aliens you hate the most and why, what weapon
    is the best, why melee is better than ranged or vise versa. If I think it will 
    help other players Iíll add it.
