Script

[Mission Start]

(The player sinks all ships and receives a mission update.)

Command: Another General Resource mobile fleet is closing in quickly. Engage and sink all incoming GR ships!

(If an enemy ship reaches the satellite, the mission fails, and the following dialogue appears.)

Command: General Resource's fleet has arrived at the satellite drop zone. You failed your mission.)

(When an allied hydrofoil reaches the satellite or all enemy ships are sunk, the screen fades to black.)

Reality Distortion

Based on UPEO's Intelligence's interrogation of Ouroboros command personnel, we verified that Ouroboros engineered the escalation of hostilities between the two conglomerates.

The General Resource scientists who defected to Neuwork were merely unwitting pawns in Ouroboros' disinformation campaign.

In addition to bringing stolen technologies to Neuwork, these defectors unknowingly spread false information about General Resource's plans to use military force against Neuwork.

The strategic information carried by the defectors was fabricated entirely by Ouroboros and had no basis in reality.

Ouroboros continued the disinformation campaign by feeding false intelligence data to both sides from their Expo City outpost.

This disinformation campaign was so effective that the Neuwork leadership used the false information to justify a pre-emptive attack against General Resource.

General Resource in turn was fooled into attacking Neuwork based on fictional military strategy data that warned them about an imminent attack by Neuwork.

Armed with this information, the UPEO diplomatic corps are now attempting to negotiate a cease-fire between Neuwork and General Resource.

Debriefing

You prevented General Resource from retrieving the research satellite. Neuwork has safely recovered the satellite.
