All told, this mission was a rousing success.◊
We didn't capture much of anything, but destroying the colony should deal a significant blow to Echo's plans.
Something strange did happen, though - Arilou was rendered unconscious, and Princeps Augustus dragged her back to the colony entrance . . . and from there, back to the submarine.
Yet, for some reason, the computer systems here not only list her as "missing in action", but also as a newly-recruited seaman at Augustica Base.
A most puzzling turn of events to be sure.
