    hey guys, when you get to Ratio, you gotta try some of the hidden codelines we put into the Aiden AI. "Alpha-Romeo-It's Raining Puppy Dogs" is a personal favorite.

    Ivar, I want you to have my rockets.

    Thanks, but I don't have a rocket launcher. Maybe I'll just throw them really hard at the aliens.

    Dr. Computer Generated Faggotry's Hyperwave Decoder came online on the 3rd of May.

    UFO%20Defense%202009-08-26%2020-45-42-97.jpg

    For three days, the base waited nervously, anxious to see if the good Doctors hypothesis about alien FTL communications were correct.

    We needn't have worried.

    UFO%20Defense%202009-08-26%2021-56-00-88.jpg

    The decryption grid came to life as the extra-terrestrial network began divulging more critical information on alien activities then we'd ever had before. Craft type, crew information, mission profile - it was all here. Analysts could spend months interpreting all the data streams. However, we had clearly isolated the most important ones. There was much rejoicing in the labs; backslaps and handshakes for a job well done.

    The mood was more grim in C&C and the Barracks. No one exactly knew what 'Alien Retaliation' was, but we were all sure that we didn't want to find out. To have no response would invite further incursions; as Earth's defense force, we would have to act. The prospect of heavily armed Muton soldiers was chilling.

    The X-Com Interceptor corps had been passing messages back and forth for days, a show of bravado and rivalry between the pilots to see who would get the first chance to utilise the new Plasma Beam craft weapons in an actual combat engagement. With the Mutons detected crossing over the Sea of Japan on a heading towards South East Asia, Lt. Cold Salmon and Hatred was now the winner of $200, a bottle of Chateau Lafitte, MechMantis's original vinyl of Slippery When Wet and Bogey's sister's home phone number.

    UFO%20Defense%202009-08-26%2020-52-51-33.jpg

    UFO-32 crossed into Chinese Airspace a little before 9pm local time. The alien craft was intercepted north of Beijing.

    UFO%20Defense%202009-08-26%2020-52-55-10.jpg

    With the Plasma Beam technology still unproven, Interceptor-3 was equipped with combination weapon loadout of Plasma Beam and three X-Com 'Avalanche' anti-UFO air-to-air missiles. To gain ameasurable evaluation of the new weapon, a two stage approach was selected as the preferred combat tactic, with Lt. Cold Salmon and Hatred at first engaging from maximum range of the missiles for the first shot, before closing to engage with the Beam weapon after weapon contact.

    UFO%20Defense%202009-08-26%2020-53-02-63.jpg
    Fig-7 (21 seconds); UFO-32 Crash lands

    The speed and accuracy with which the Plasma Beam brought down the scout craft is beyond even the science team's predictions. Within a matter of heartbeats, multiple high-energy particle streams travelling at more than half the speed of light turn the UFO's outer hull from a durable metal alloy capable of atmospheric entry into a burning pyre of molten slag that lights up the night sky with green flames.

    The UFO crashes lands in an isolated valley in Northern China.

    A squad of soldier from Contact Team Ratio is mustered to engage remaining ground forces. Cpt. Karl and Sgt. Wallhitter are arrived and cleared to lead the team. Medic NotACrook has also received medical clearance to rejoin the team. Additionally, of the new recruits, Der Waffle Mous and RabidDeathMoose are ready for combat; recruits Zombies Tossed My Salad! (or Zombiesalad!, for character limit reasons) and gurusloth are still waiting to be issued armour and will remain at base. Soldiers Veretas and Cliffjumper are likewise not on duty.

    UFO%20Defense%202009-08-26%2020-54-30-40.jpg

    Skyranger-2 puts down in the engagement zone shortly after midnight, local time.

    Der Waffle Mous: Locked and loaded!

    Rankenphile: Hey, newbie. When you get splattered, try not to get any blood on my armour. I've just had it polished.
