Fred Johnson was just following orders. Or, so he thought when he attacked Anderson Station. Fred and his troops breached the hull of the station and marched in, guns blazing. He carefully monitored the progress of his forces as they cleared corridor after corridor. There were pockets of resistance that they overcame quickly since the troops wore body armor and were armed with high-powered rifles. The “terrorists” on board the station wore nothing but coveralls and were armed with anything they could get their hands on – a few guns, but mostly tools and other hand-made weapons.
