Welcome to the Revolution... is the twenty-fifth level in Marathon. It is the first level of Rebellion, the sixth and final chapter of the game. You're back aboard the Marathon, where the S'pht rebellion has begun. The objective here is to reach the exit terminal at the north end of the map.
There's a pattern buffer at the start of the level. Another pattern buffer can be found in the easternmost room of the cargo hangar part of the level. A 1x shield recharger can be found on the side of a pillar in a pool of lava just to the northeast of the starting room. A 3x shield recharger is located at the end of a ledge in a room to the northwest of the starting room. Finally, a 2x shield recharger can be found in the northwest corner of the level.
Use the pattern buffer at the start of the level. The south door here leads to a dead end with a hard to reach terminal; see below for instructions how to get there. The main route to the level is through the north door.
Head north; you'll find a dead-end walkway in a lava pool with an inaccessible opening up in the right hand wall. Jump across to the pillar in the lava; there's a 1x shield recharger here, as well as a switch. Hit the switch to raise a stairway out of the lava; quickly step on the stairs to be carried up. If you're not fast enough, grenade jump out of the lava.
Now follow the south corridor to a room with Pfhor fighting S'pht. Remember, the Compilers are your friends now, so try not to shoot them. Take the elevator up onto the ledge; at the northeast end, you'll find a 3x shield recharger.
The door to the north leads to a number of interconnected cargo hangars. If you go east, then north, you'll find a hangar with a pool of lava; the east exit from this room leads to a pattern buffer.
In the northwesternmost room of the cargo hangar section, you'll find a 2x shield charger.
The final room in the level is labelled B on the map. There are two buttons in the level that each open a door leading to the final room; you only need to hit one button to reach the exit terminal.
One button can be found in the northeast hangar with the pool of lava; another button can be found in the room with the 2x shield recharger. The buttons are not located in the same room as the doors they activate, so after hitting a button you'll have to go around to another nearby room at the north end of the level to reach the final room.
The final room contains a number of elevators. Getting to the exit terminal up above is a bit tricky. Step on the westernmost elevator when it's lowered, wait until it rises, then quickly run off the elevator, turning around the pillar to your east in midair so you land on the next elevator. Wait until this elevator is at it highest point, run around the next pillar to the east to land on the next elevator, and repeat this procedure a few more times until you reach the exit terminal. From here you are teleported to Try again.
A secret terminal with a message from Tycho can be found at point A on the map. In order to get there, head south from the starting room. Move through a large room with a narrow walkway crossing a lake of lava. At the north end, go through another corridor to find an intersection flooded with lava.
Jump into the lava and run west, then south. Hit the button up in the wall across from you, and quickly run up the stairs to the east and run north. A platform to the north will rise out of the lava; if you're quick enough you can cross it to reach a bunch of Hunters, a good amount of ammo, and the terminal. The terminal is way up on the wall, so you need to rocket jump to reach it.
The first Terminal is a message from Durandal. He tells you that the S'pht revolt has begun, and that they will help you to kill the Pfhor and not to fire on them. He then tells you that the S'pht have released Leela and that she will be online shortly to assist you further. Finally, he tells you that there are numerous Pfhor on the UESC Marathon with nowhere to go and little to lose and wishes you luck in the fight against them.
The second terminal is a message from Tycho for Durandal. He starts in Latin 'tua consilia omnia nobis clariora sunt quam lux. Tu delenda est' roughly 'All your plans are clearer to us than light. You're finished', then tells Durandal that he and Leela will break Durandal to prevent his capture, as Roland did. He says that the S'pht have taught him much, and that he has forgotten nothing, to which Durandal replies, "et tu, Tycho?"
The third terminal is a garbled message from Leela. It is impossible to understand everything she says except the last sentence, that Durandal is dangerous.
