Deployment Orders: Operation Snowfall
RESCUE PROTOCOLS IN EFFECT
Listen up, mercs! We got a whole shuttle of Exiles in trouble. You're the folks who get to hit the drop pods and save their sorry butts. Most of the passengers in that ship were human and Aurin, and most of them are civilians, so don't expect much help when you arrive. Keep an eye out for anyone with real combat training - I do see more than a few on the passenger manifest. Someone like that might be a big help dealing with the unexpected.
You heard me, soldiers. We don't know much about this region at all, except the Dominion doesn't seem to want it - mostly likely because it's damn near frozen solid. But the eggheads say they got some mighty interesting scans from underneath the ice. Might be Eldan - and it might be worth checking out. Any advantage we can get against the Dommies is an advantage I want.
One more thing. Looks like Deadeye Brightland was on this ship. Now he and me don't see eye to eye, but he's one of those people to watch for. Not a bad fighter to have in your corner, and he's managed to stay alive in some pretty nasty situations. Of course, he's brought some pretty little wife along to Nexus, so he might not be that interested in getting into too many scrapes. But if the survivors are going to make it, we all got to pull together. Like always.
Fleet's prepping a rescue shuttle right now. When they depart, I'll send the signal to light the landing flares. Stay frosty, mercs.
