Added DiffLines:

* GeneralFailure: Surprisingly ''Averted'': the ''Mjolnir'' crew explain that Locke analyzed the path the Machine army was going to dig through, and noticed that heavy iron deposits would force them through a choke point, so he ordered a counter-attack on that location before they even got to Zion. The ''Mjolnir'' crew admit that it was actually a good tactical plan - or at least, the best under the circumstances. It might have even done a lot of damage...if Bane hadn't sabotaged the fleet by setting off an EMP before they could even carry it out.
