Combat Report - July 1st, 2040
Personnel deployed to combat zone:

Yana (via remote link): All right, people - Kwas will be overseeing this mission. Remember, standard sweep: five by five, top to bottom. Standing orders are to neutralize all Echo forces, then head belowdecks. Understood?

Kwas: Yessir. Aldred, you're with me. Princeps, Myst, you two take four people each. Princeps, you take the passenger section; Myst, you head for the bridge. Move out, people!

(CLUNK CLUNK CLUNK CLUNK CLUNK)

Myst: Echo on the upper deck!

Aldred: I see it. Taking the shot.

(WHUMPH WHUMPH WHUMPH)

Gill Men (offscreen): HURGH . . .

Princeps: Hah, Echo's shitting himself today. Already he's making with the grenades, and he's not even throwing them in the right directions!

dmboogie: Well, we do have one small problem. Those grenades threw up a hell of a lot of smoke here in the passenger section.

Princeps: . . . Point.
