Orca vs Medusa & 6 Cyclopes

So I was hyperdicted by a Medusa and 3 Cyclopes. I fed them some MAs hoping that they would summon a fifth Cyclops...but I got a lot more than I bargained for. I'm still investigating the phenomenon, but somehow they went further than usual and summoned THREE more Cyclopes. I was sort of crapping my pants at first, which is why I let the ship heat up so much in the beginning.

I've tried to get Hyperdicting Interceptors to summon another Thargoid like you normally can in an NHSS or Distress call. But what kept happening was that they started fighting among themselves for the MAs and eventually decided to get angry at me and attack before they could summon another one. I DISCOVERED that the trick is to hide your ship's signature after releasing the MAs, which I easily did by using Silent Running. As you can see in the video, at least one of them was expressing anger, but they couldn't find me so proceeded to keep eating the MAs.

The fight was straightforward given that I was dealing with Cyclopes, but it was a blast. I made a number of stupid mistakes here and there, which I attribute to being tired after spending a while trying to get the right Hyperdiction instance.

I love flying the Orca because it has a very high top speed, a ridiculously high drift speed, and decent thrusters.

At first I tried shooting down the swarms, but eventually gave up and just settled for paring down the Medusa's swarm. Additionally, I only used BASIC ammo in this fight.
