Was this the shuttle disaster mission?
If so that was one crazy mission. I hears different things from all over the place. Like they were doing weather modification research. Then there was the whole thing with the "lightning" at 200+ miles up (yea right). I really wish I knew some more details on that mission. Maybe it was STS-107, can't remember. But the purple beam of light right before it broke up?!? Talk about scalar weapons. They probably seen the multiple alien bases orbitting the planet.
I think space would be cool with some w33d but not if there are earth conquering aliens chillin out there drooling over our succulant soft carcases. I'd have to go with a railgun and play me some Doom. Seriously, what was all the "killing alien games" practice for anyway?
"Here's your civilian issue railgun soldier, god speed. Oh yea, smoke this before you go it will help you concentrate on the task at hand"
"Yes Sir, I'll kick me some alien butt. I've been practicing for over a decade. Thank you Quake and Doom."

Well, something is messed up about this story because no Cosmonaut participated in an STS-108 EVA, only two US astronauts.
The 3 man ISS Expedition 4 crew at the time was composed of a Russian commander (Onufriyenko) and two US astronauts (Walz and Bursch). ISS EVA's are always done with two people out. The first EVA was Walz and Bursch, so unless the Cosmonaut was freaking out INSIDE the ISS, this isn't it. The second EVA for the Expedition 4 crew was on January 25, 2002 and did include Onufriyenko. The third was Walz and Bursch again.
