New Recruits Tend To Drown A Lot
Commander's Logs - June 25th, 2040 to July 1st, 2040June 25, 2040
Thanks to the interrogation of a captured Aquatoid Medic, we've learned what those floating brain-things are that we encountered at the Alien colony near Neo-Japan. They're a species known as the Tentaculat, and they seem to serve the same purpose as the Chryssalids of the First Alien War.◊
The only good thing about them is that they seem to be strictly aquatic, so we need not worry about mass Tentaculat infestations during Alien attacks on seagoing vessels, resorts, or port towns. They will, however, make short work of an incautious squad of Aquanauts, as they serve as guard dogs for Alien colonies and the larger alien submarines.

Two more reports - one from the scientists, one from the Funding Committe.
The scientists' report is on the captured Lobster Man - a fearsome creature to be sure.◊
The Funding Committee cares less about our research and more about the destruction of the Alien colony. They were practically jubilant when they heard the news, and have given us a significant increase in funding.◊
