    Karlsu
    Lieutenant Karlsu. I'm all that's left of Commander Childress's fifth detail. Please tell me you're our reinforcements.
    Meteor
    Your hopes are answered.
    Karlsu
    Give me a moment. All's clear, guys. And we've got some muscle from back on base. This is what's left of our research team. The others got ambushed while working. Scavengers must have guessed we were after something good. We need to hold them off long enough for the research team to recover and download that data.
    RSL1
    You'll need to reactivate the generator subsystems as we go, so we can grab the data when we hit the main computer. We'll follow you.
    Meteor
    I'm on point. Researchers inside; anyone who's not working, fan out behind me.
    Karlsu
    Aye, sir, aye. Okay. Data's priority one. Everyone into the ship. Go!

    If you hadn't come when you did, those would be our smoking corpses there, no question. Unfortunately, we're not done, not until this wreck's data is in the hands of Commander Viqui.
    Meteor
    Give me what you have. I'll get it to the commander.
    Karlsu
    We've recovered all the high-priority info. If you run that to the outpost, I'll hold off what's left of the scavengers until our reinforcements arrive.
    RSL1
    Please - get the data to Commander Viqui. It's the only way to be sure all of our work doesn't go to waste.
    Karlsu
    Well, I'd offer a salute, but that don't mean much to someone like you. Best way you can help is to take this datapad to Commander Viqui at the outpost.
    RSL1
    Thank you for protecting us. And good luck.

The lieutenant, upon realizing that the operatives were an allies, signalled the remaining researchers to come out from hiding. Under the leadership of the operatives, Karlsu and the team made their way through the ruined ship to the main computers at the aft section. Karlsu and the operatives fought off the scavengers while the researchers retrieved the logs.
When researchers had extracted all the high-priority data, Karlsu handed the data disk to the operatives and asked them to bring it to Commander
