The radio scanner in the Landing Craft picks up signals from across the System and plays them for the Tenno.

Enforcement Leader: “Show me your ID cards now! You! Where’s your ramn!? Get on the ground! You! C’mere! That better not be a Red Veil badge. Grab him. Search those crates! Duhh… Rail Leader, requesting ship lockdown. Perform deep scan for Tenno and Tenno sympathisers. You! I’m placing you in custody!”

Enforcement Leader: “Uhh, Captain, do you know if any Tenno have been on this ship? There’s, uhh, energy residue everywhere. Yeah, yeah, scan your system; look for, uh, signs of intrusion. [pause] Yeah, you understand, uhh, this is gonna need to be reported to, uhh, High Command. Uh-huh. Yeah, well, this is, uhh, very serious. Vor will want to know.”


Grineer Propagandist: “The Tenno capture warrant has been upgraded. All Tenno are to be exterminated.”

Grineer Propagandist: “The Tenno awakening must not interfere with Grineer liberation of the System.”

Grineer Propagandist: “Tenno sightings near Mars have been confirmed. Lancer battalions are now being mobilised to the area.”

Grineer Propagandist: “The Tenno threat is always present. Eternal alertness is the duty of every Grineer.”

Grineer Propagandist: “Our agreements with the Corpus only go so far. The aggressive actions by Alad V will not be tolerated.”

Grineer Propagandist: “Councilor Vay Hek has passed his Fomorian initiative. These ships will help ensure Grineer power remains unchallenged.”

Grineer Propagandist: “A warrant has been issued for the rogue Corpus smuggler known only as Darvo. This individual is thought to be behind a rash of deaths and hijackings.”

Grineer Propagandist: “By order of the Queens, Admiral Vor will lead the Tenno execution program. Vor has vowed to destroy the Tenno before they awake.”

Grineer Propagandist: “The Corpus have finally agreed to our demands. The Grineer will now have access to technologies that further our fight in the Outer Sectors.”

Grineer Propagandist: “Due to his formidable performance crushing the insubordination of Saturn, Sargas Ruk has been promoted to the rank of General.”

Grineer Propagandist: “Today the mining colonies of Saturn welcomed Grineer troops as liberators. Rebel leaders were executed to mark public celebrations of this momentous occasion.”

Grineer Propagandist: “Grineer forces in the Outer Terminus have become increasingly distracted by encounters with the Tenno bretakh. Councillor Vay Hek’s Fomorian ship initiative is sure to restore order to the area.”


Merchant Captain: “Rail Control, this is merchant transport 3398 reporting for passage. [pause] Rail Control, I don’t see why boarding would be necessary. Perhaps if I sent over a sample container of my wares, you could inspect that? I mean, you wouldn’t even need to send it back? [pause] Okay, okay. How about I send over… five containers for… uhm, inspection? [pause] Ah. A pleasure doing business with you, Rail Control!”


Squad Leader: “Command, we’ve breached the ship. What is crawling all over the walls and floors? Disgusting! Looks like it’s… alive? [pause] No command, no sign of any personnel. Requesting orders. How do we proceed? Hold on a second… I think I heard something.” [infested scream and several gunshots, then silence]


Grustrag Transport Captain: “Command, this is Grustrag Transport uk-tok [12], standby for delivery of cargo. Docking now. Oh, and if you know what’s good for you, you’ll appear in full security detail in receiving. [pause][sigh] Can’t wait for these monsters to be your problem, and not mine.”
