Decrypting... >Decryption complete. 44 percent content obtained. -------------- This is an automated distress beacon, transmitting from coordina- *Sudden shot of static* Am I in? Great. CORMORANT, if you're still there then we have a serious problem. Containment has failed and three of my team are KIA. Status of VULTURE is unknown but likely compromised.

Make sure you have them secured behind a firewall the moment they- *Section unobtainable* -whole situation went to hell. I don't know what happened. One moment the containment was secure, the next the whole hab went haywire. HAWK was gone in seconds. I think I may have killed SEAGULL; dumb rookie ran straight into my gunfire. I'm glad I routed my suit control through that ecto you gave me, or else- *Encryption failure* -wonder where VULTURE is? I have no way of contacting him, I cut off all links with the squad to avoid infection. And what good did it do? Now I'm backed up into a corner, no way out except via the hab's antennae.
