New Recruits Tend To Drown A Lot

Commander's Log - January 24th, 2040
Another good news, bad news day.

The good news is threefold:

One, the science team here has finally finished their work on the basics of Gauss Technology, and they're weaponizing it at this very moment.

Two, the new recruits have arrived, including the new active-duty Aquanaut Nads and the XO for the base defense team, x2wolf.

And three, we finally have the Coelecanth SWS.

However, this leads me into the first part of the bad news: that being that we only got half a case of ammunition for the damn thing, so we can't use it just yet.

And then there's the second part of the bad news . . . Alien terrorists have launched an attack on the port of Bombay, and X-Com's been called in to deal with them.

I remember the horror stories of the First Alien War, where entire squads would be torn apart by Eek terrorists laying in wait to ambush the troops as they exited the transports.

On the one hand, I know I'm likely sending my troops into a meat grinder.

On the other hand . . . if I don't do something, I risk pissing off the people funding X-Com, which could be even worse.

I hate this shit. I really do.
