Afterlife: This is the DNS Abernathy command to all operation channels. Checking for clarity.

All Unit Leaders: You're loud and clear, Abernathy command.

Afterlife: Copy that. Code name for command is Afterlife.

All Unit Leaders: Roger.

Afterlife: Remember, we want intel on anything you find important. Burn every other plans, blueprints, maps, you name it. And I want their communications towers down. That'll slow them down with supply trades and communication with other quarters. I want radio silence until you all clear out your drop areas. And you all know the drill. Drop, shock and burn.

All Unit Leaders: Hooah.

DNS York: Dropping pods in 30 seconds.

Lt. Travers: Well, I don't need to repeat what command said. Let's do this and get our asses back in the York in one piece.

Cpt. Reeve: Check all your gear, load one in the chamber. I want everyone ready as soon as we drop.

Lt. Browne: Let's make this quick. I want to be back in time for chow.

All Members: Hooah.

DNS York: Dropping in 5... 4... 3... 2... 1... Locks released. Dropping. Good luck out there.
