Combat Report - October 21, 2040
Personnel assigned to combat zone:

Myst: All right, people. We'll keep this one simple - search and destroy. If you spot Echo, kill it if you can. If not, tag it and sing out. Get it?

All: Got it!

Myst: Good. Move out!

(CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH)

Harriman: No sign of Echo, but there's a lot of Greek ruins about.

Mc Crimmon: Och, what is it with these Greek ruins everywhere we go?! I thought Atlantis was supposed to be in the Atlantic Ocean somewhere!

(CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH)

Connor: I'm gonna go find me an alien to kill!

Murphy: Hey, Connor, wait for me!

(CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH)

Chaudrhy: I've found the sub. Looks like there's a body in the wreckage . . . can't tell exactly what it is offhand. 'S either a Tasoth or a Gill Man, though.

(CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH)

Harriman: Well, I've got a Gill Man over by these ruins. Launching shock bomb.

(THUPP-BLOOP)

Gill Man: . . .

Harriman: Echo down.

dmboogie: Nice work, Walter.

(WHIRR-CLUNK)

Chaudrhy: Movement in the sub!

Myst: Cover me, Chaudrhy. I'll go check it out.

(CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH)

(WHIRR-CLUNK)

Myst: Confirmed. It's Gill Men, all right.

(THUPP-BLOOP)

Gill Man: . . .

Myst: And another one in the deep freeze.

(CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH)

Myst: Okay, I'm in the sub. I don't see any-

(KSSHOW-CRACKLE)

Myst: Oh, HELL no bitch!

(THUPP-BLOOP)

Gill Man: . . .

dmboogie: These subs usually have a four-man crew, right, Myst?

Myst: Yeah.

dmboogie: Well, we kayoed three . . . and with the dead one, that makes four Eeks. Looks like we got this mission sewn up.

Myst: Okay, people. Police the site and head back to the Triton.

Connor: Goddamnit, another mission and no kills.

dmboogie: Don't worry, Connor. I hear Command's got something special planned for us in the next week or so.
