Re: Planet A474-Z5673
Planet A474-Z5673 has been overrun by lurkers. My team finished its mission only an hour before the lurkers arrived and had already scuttled base and gone. My team is still in system, using inactive scanning only.
The lurkers landed two weeks ahead of their expected arrival. The plateweb is in place. With few exceptions, it appears to be holding.
Shall we detonate?
