We are clear of Ella system and are on our way to the Talos system. Now I know you are surprised as much as I am that not only are there so many 'sects running around, but that the big bugs are present as well.
Intel is still attempting to ascertain the strength of the enemy fleet. It's also a crapshoot as to their intent. We are working currently on the assumption that the aliens are attempting a backdoor invasion of Confed space. The direction of the offensive is an unknown, but if allowed to take Sol they could disrupt nearly all chains of command and allow for any number of other threats to surface.
I'm talking Kilrathi radicals, Pirates, organized mercs, and terrorists the like of which set off that explosion on the Terran ShipYard Arcology.
Now, I don't want that to happen, and I think you don't want that to happen.
Your exemplary work at Ella helps us move forward with our plans on avoiding such a situation from arising. Maintaining the security of that sector will be a great help in allowing for Intel to establish a secure base of operations. I think we have gone a long way in proving the confederation was correct in not pursuing the drone fighter program.
We're moving into Talos now, folks. This place is supposed to swarm. If it does we're going to have to put out our bug zappers in overdrive and proceed with some major swatting. I have a strong feeling that we'll be paying a visit to the Talos station and helping out the friendly forces stationed there. Through Talos we should be able to gain entry to the Cygnus system. A very important push is ahead of us. Good luck, and Godspeed.
