 It’s funny really. We weren’t sure what to do when we first found out the first snippet of info. O’Brien and I were…well surprised. And this kid…he’s the key to it all. How I wonder? Alexander is dead, and so is Tristan. How can we do this without them? It seems like a truly daunting task. Now don’t get me wrong…was I really surprised when we had our first “close encounter”? No, not really. But finding out that this is the way it is. I’m going to have to rethink my life. And yes, very secret sections of the “department” had “experimented” using wormhole generators. Not only using them to travel faster than the speed of light but…going to entirely different places. And not just planets or not even galaxies. Completely different…dimensions? I’m not sure. I just wish Will hadn’t of dropped the bomb so late. Speaking of which I haven’t seen him lately. Doing things I should be concerned of? Have no clue.

Ya’ got nuthin’ to worry ‘bout laddie! We’ll pull out of this “mess” just as fine as any other! And yes it was unfortunate about Alexander and Tristan. And yes if I could find him I would kick Will’s ****. He should have told us earlier. He SHOULD have given us time to prepare. What a moron. Here’s a list of planets that have been hit so far:

Mars (How the hell they’d get there?)

New Earth

Haven

Fitzgerald

Forget it, it’s too long.  But everything on those places is burning. Our boys gave em’ a fight but…

We may have gotten a late warning, but we are marines. We will adapt and overcome. The fleet is split in two task groups. One is in your command. I will be pushing back the “things”. I have yet to plan a grand strategy on such a short notice. But we might not need one, hell we’ll probably be burning by tomorrow. I’m arranging for a mass “exodus”. Can’t say much more. What a stupid fight. Be back in communication in a couple of days. And Winston, use proper English please!

God bless you all and good luck.
