"It looks like damage."
L/Cpl Jim Kasulka of the United States Colonial Marine Corps had this story to relate:
- "There's this colony - outbound in the arm - on some Terraformed rockball orbiting Zeta Reticuli. Apparently, some crazy woman appeared at Gateway six months back, said she landed on the place back in the '20s and some bugs — big alien sonofabitches — overran her ship and ate her crew. She said she escaped by blowing the bugs out the airlock and then froze herself until a rescue ship came along — nearly sixty years later! Anyway, th' ICC asks Space Command to send in some squads of Colonial Marines, armed to the teeth and ready for bear, to recon the planet.
- "They never came back.
- "True story."
