It’s been all go since the attack in Germany, and what else could you expect? To be honest there’s a part of me that’s glad this is happening, glad I’ve been called up and glad we’re finally doing something useful with this program. Guess it’s up to us to show the sceptics that the X-COM program is worth the ample resources the governments of the world have been silently pumping into it.
Chavez has been recovering surprisingly well from what happened in Munich. It may seem like a blessing to be ‘the one who made it’ but, trust me, it doesn’t often feel like it. We promoted him, felt like he could make good use of that rocket launcher getting even with these aliens. He’s the only man we have who’s got real experience with fighting these “Sectoids” as we’re calling them.
He’ll get his chance to put his well earned equipment to use soon enough, he and his replenished team have just headed out to Los Angeles to investigate a claimed abduction along with Bendon, Paterson and Toman. We had a similar call from the Chinese but the Americans were offering sound minds, and I’ll take that over a cash reward any day. We need brain-boxes studying the alien materials we picked up from Munich, maybe we can use them to help protect our people against the alien’s weaponry. You can imagine how happy that made China, that is to say not very happy at all, but thankfully they’re sticking with the program for now.
Here’s hoping the rookies make it back in one piece.
