Thank you for assisting with the cloaking upgrades. I'm still tweaking some systems based on the new power requirements, but so far it hasn't affected my top speed. I may be the quietest ship in this quadrant.


Mission Dialogue

Ravyn: Thank you for assisting with the cloaking upgrades. I'm still tweaking some systems based on the new power requirements, but so far it hasn't affected my top speed. I may be the quietest ship in this quadrant.

Ravyn: This is the first time I have returned from the Morsk expanse without attracting attention.
Glad to hear. So what is next on your agenda?

Ravyn: There has been a development on something that you'll find quite interesting.
Like what?.

Ravyn: When Sileena first pulled the intel about the Archotage, she also came across a coded message... one that we've only recently been able to crack.
What did it contain?

Ravyn: We still aren't fully sure. At first we assumed it was a map, given the similarities to other data we've gained from the Terran Outsiders.
What does the data look like?

Ravyn: A massive series of numerical sets... but they aren't coordinates, or fleet commands, or manifest records.
I can have my scientists take a look at it.

Ravyn: Good. The Terran Outsiders went to great lengths to protect this data. I'm keen on identifying its purpose. Wait...
What?

Ravyn: There's an incoming comm from Sileena. This must be important. She's still deep in the field.
Put her on.

Sileena: Ravyn... Commander...
Nice to finally speak to you, Sileena.

Sileena: That data that we've been analyzing, Ravyn, did you manage to determine what it was for?
We're still working on that.

Ravyn: Sileena already knows the answer. She's just dangling it over my head. She wouldn't have contacted us otherwise.
Well?

Sileena: Ravyn. I told you this new "alliance" might slow you down.
She's stealthier and quicker than ever. Are you going to tell us what you've found?

Sileena: The data was harder to decipher because we were assuming it was using existing T.O. patterns. But when we compared it to Stryll gene sequencing... we found a close match.
Stryll? The Terran Outsiders have never worked with the Stryll.

Quite right. But, the timing of this data is very suspicious.
So, the data could be genetic code?

Ravyn: If the Stryll are involved, it's likely a virus.
Good point.

Sileena: It appears to be a virus, yes... but far more advanced.
Is it complete?

Sileena: We can't tell for sure, but the virus doesn't appear to be finished. We have to assume it's still in the development phase.
And you think the Archotage might be involved?

Sileena: With the Stryll's biological technology, and the possibility of the T.O. rebuilding the Archotage transporter network... yes. It's not a coincidence.
The combination of the two would be...

Sileena: ... a powerful weapon indeed.
What should we do?

Sileena: We should start with the Stryll. There's more to go on from that angle.
They aren't exactly centralized. This kind of technology could be developed anywhere.

Ravyn: The Terran Outsiders would have insisted on something within their borders.
So we look for any Stryll traffic within those regions.

Sileena: It's a broad start, and likely to lead to many dead-ends, but we'll develop a better plan once we gather more information.
Stryll ships aren't easy to hack...especially at range.

Sileena: Let's do our best, but as usual - stay quiet. I'm going dark now. I'll report back later.
Thank you, Sileena.

Good luck... both of you... and try to keep up.
