1. Carter Powell reports that he has assumed command of Fire Base Archon. Urgently requests garrison force. Task Force Hammer will remain until garrison is deployed.
2. Intelligence Assessment: Xenopods have a powerful group of Biomecha to our north. We have destroyed two separate recon patrols so the probability that Fire Base Archon has not yet been detected is high.
3. North Star will attempt to shadow Xenopod biomecha battle group. Imperial Recon elements Recon Alpha and Ghost Rider assigned to screen Fire Base Archon.
4. Mutant activity to the east has appeared to halted. At present no active recon patrols are stationed on our eastern flank. Recon Bravo will be stood up to correct this as soon as resources permit. Vladimir Kost will command.
5. Local Intelligence Chief formally protests that Purgatory Base is lightly defended and vulnerable. Protest Noted.

1. Carter Powell reports that Recon Alpha arrived safely at Fire Base Archon. Contact with Xenopod light battle group VV-04 has been lost.

3. Situation is critical. Battle Group Hammer is underpowered to engage Xenopod biomechas. No resource exploitation opportunities have been discovered.
3. If Fire Base Archon’s existence has been compromised then situation will most likely deteriorate rapidly.

1. Imperial Recon unit deployed to Fire Base Archon to act as temporary garrison.
2. North Star tasked with locating heavy Xenopod bio mecha Battle Group to the North. A small raider outpost has been located on the Great Berm but no contact with Xenopods reported.

4. Intelligence indicates that the Free Mutants are conducting some type of large scale operations to the East. This is troubling as our Eastern flank is completely exposed.
