“ Incoming report! Recon scouts have raised a new concern. Corpus squads have been spotted in graveyards all across the sector. It looks like a rush job, bodies are left outside of the graves while some are taken all together. What in the world are they after? ”

“ Disturbing news Commander! Corpus units have been spotted just outside our base. We did not notice them right away and are unsure what information they have collected. Clearly, we are now viewed as a serious threat. We should increase our base's defense to ensure we survive whatever they have planned. ”

“ Another Corpus spy unit was spotted in our territory. Before we could take any action, they hightailed it out of there in two dune buggy-like vehicles. They were certainly equipped to fight, but we vastly outnumbered them. ”
