OOC:  I thought that Will was probably to far away and to involved to be of
much help still hes open to suggestions.  It seems to me that rescuing the
human and stopping the shaper form using the orb are both priorities.  We
have already let one Vong escape and the clock is ticking.  The human could
give us the edge in information that may help us get to the next phase of
the operation ahead of the curve and still surprise them.  Of course if the
shaper alerts the entire complex then all bets are off.  If the vong could
at least be delayed and Will be alerted maybe he could still be of help.
