Would like to input some blob strategies though.
-As soon as a blob is announced you should be combing through the station searching for it.(Have at least one officer search each significant area.)This is because the more resources a blob produces the more they can expand and attack.The more time they have to build resource nodes the harder your fight will be.
-Once blob has been confirmed the HOS/Warden should supply officers with relavent gear.(I find hardsuits work the best but riot suits arn’t bad either+Laser and energy guns.)
-Coordinate crew and sillicone to aid in the blob.As Security if you are not directly fighting the blob you should be maintaining coordination.
Get doctors on standby to heal and revive casualties.
Have a engineer/s build emmiters if blob is exposed to space.
Science is pretty useless most of the time but if robotics has mech tech have them build a combat mech(they are extremely powerful).Science can also build weapon rechargers but your better off stealing all the ones in sec.
Have cargo order guns.(If they have a lot of money order auto rifles,if not order lasers.) Lasers are easier to maintain indefinitely while assault rifles are more powerful.
Have AI/Borgs make the area your fighting as accesible as possible.The easier people can get in the better.
-Take notice of the blobs type.Some give out toxins when damaged,others fire.Taking notice of a blobs type and making sure you and colleagues can counter it can be crucial.
-There should be two key figures more important than everyone else in the blob fight.That being the HOS(Who should be maintaining and coordinating the frontline) and the captain (who should be maintaining the resource line IE medical,cargo,engi. Science is kinda a lone wolf type) If you see the captain at the frontline,tell him to leave.He may be tempted to use his personal laser gun but it’s far safer to leave it in the hands of the HOS instead. Captain should not be fighting front line but maintaining backline/resource line.
-Make sure the crew actually know about the blob.Many a round blob wins cause crew just kinda ignore it.Make sure the crew know about it and are actively helping.
And never use explosives.they are the worst.
