"And, in addition, each cryo section has 40,000 people in it. Can we agree to not try to kill them?"

"The priority here is to eliminate as many of the Swarm as we can, we can't let even a single spore of their being off this ship alive."
"We also need to make sure to exert caution. Avoid using loud and dangerous weaponry, that would wake those in a sort of sleep state."

"Good idea. The less we have to fight early, the better off we can be later."

Docking Area: First Contact

The team opens the airlock, and a true carnage is revealed. Numerous dismembered crew members are spread across the room, having tried to reach the shuttles to flee from the Swarm. The wreckage of said shuttle lies amongst a pile of other damaged cargo and a third, wrecked ship. Swarm biomass has started growing through the containers, feeding on the bodies and supplies that lay within. From here, you can spot at least 8 of the bugs between the scrap, unmoving but undoubtly still alive. They consist of little more than sharp claws and a hungry mouth, and are rather unpleasant to behold.

In a corner of the hangar bay, the're more signs of resistance. A large exosuit, canopy torn open by the Swarm, it's unfortunate pilot eviscerated all over the nearby area, leans against a wall. Asides from that, it appears to be functional. Likewise, two of the Docking bay sentries appear undeployed. They could potentially be salvaged.

The doors to the CRYO BAY's are both sealed, but you believe you can open them quite easily. Neither of them has been blockaded, welded or fused shut, after all.

((About what do the Swarm look like? Is "xenomorph" indicating that they're like the monsters from the Alien franchise, or that they're alien in form?))

Carl looks at the exosuit. "[sub[I wish I had a repair kit. That looks real useful.[/sub]"
"The swarm doesn't seem to have noticed you yet. I would recommend using quieter weapons, to avoid disturbing Swarm in this or other areas. Carl, you seem the most technically skilled; I need you to take a sample."
"...Wait, what?"

Carl's Actions:
1-Take Sample
2, 3, 4-Shoot Swarm with electrolaser pistol.

"Understood."

((I don't think I understand the way this game works nearly as well as I thought I did before reading that.))
((Any specific questions? Anyway, you can use each die either for an attack (uses 1 ammunition), assign them as Defensive dice, or do some miscelanous action. Only for the latter can dice be stacked, in which case the best roll is chosen. ))

"Fire at will Kelly. Try not to hit the exosuit, still might be usable."
"Got it."

1, Shoot swarm(laser) 2, If swarm are still around, shoot with uzi, if there are no swarm, move over to exosuit and investigate. 3, if used 2 to shoot swarm, investigate exosuit.

...Oh.

In that case, Attack with two of the dice, and defend with the other two.

Docking Area: Overkill actually exists.

Spoiler: Initiative (click to show/hide)

Carl looks at the exosuit. "[sub[I wish I had a repair kit. That looks real useful.[/sub]"
"The swarm doesn't seem to have noticed you yet. I would recommend using quieter weapons, to avoid disturbing Swarm in this or other areas. Carl, you seem the most technically skilled; I need you to take a sample."
"...Wait, what?"

Carl's Actions:
1-Take Sample
2, 3, 4-Shoot Swarm with electrolaser pistol.

Carl carefully approaches the Swarm, using his suit's optics to gather as much information about the xenofauna as possible. He does not go unnoticed however, and the Swarm workers, surprisingly quick for a lifeform just recovering from hibernation, charge. [4,3,3] A few blasts from his electrolaser pistol, and 3 of the Swarm slump back to sleep. 

Spoiler: Sample: Swarm Worker (click to show/hide)

...Oh.

In that case, Attack with two of the dice, and defend with the other two.

[1,6]Jaeger readies his flamethrower, and with a few concentrated blasts encircles the Swarm in fire. Almost half of the Swarm is caught in the fire. [5] Fire prevention systems must have been deactivated, as no sirens or alarms go off. Seems at least some of the crew managed to follow the Standard Swarm protocol.

"Slan, you ready?"
"Always was."

1,2,3,4: Fire at aliens with pistol.
[1,2,6,6] While obscured by the flames, the Swarm can't move either, and after a few shots to find his range Slan manages to take out the remaining Swarm without trouble.

"Fire at will Kelly. Try not to hit the exosuit, still might be usable."
"Got it."

1, Shoot swarm(laser) 2, If swarm are still around, shoot with uzi, if there are no swarm, move over to exosuit and investigate. 3, if used 2 to shoot swarm, investigate exosuit.
The Swarm are done far, so Kelly is free to go and investigate the Exosuit. It appears to be in remarkably good condition, and after reconnecting a few cables comes back to life. Now just enter the authorization code and you have your own heavy lifting vehicle.

"That went well. Much better than expected, for sure. Finish checking around for things, and see what can be...retrieved. Keep a lookout for Swarm."

Slan Scofski: 2 Dice: Check the Sentry Guns. See if they can be used to passively exterminate any Swarm that enter this room while we're gone.
Carl Anderson: 2 Dice: Attempt to repair the exosuit.
