Security Report #1 (Five Klicks - Xeno-Mod)
Post-Evacuation Report #1 of Officer Ellen Schwarzschild, Station Security, Tulloch Station.
January 4th, 2182; 2130 hours.
It's been three days since The Company pulled its science team out and left us to the bugs. Three days, and the bugs have been at the door, clawing and chewing and trying to find a way through the entire time. The chunk of Tulloch Station we call home isn't much, just a couple of offices, a hallway and a noodle stand, but at least we're alive. We have water, we have food, we have air, and we have eight inches of plate steel between us and the bugs. We have enough dried noodle pouches and soup mix to keep us fed for about seventeen days (by MacReady's estimate) but with no relief coming, we're going to need more of, well, everything, if we have any hope of surviving beyond that.
That's why I gathered the squad. There are eight of us in total, eight volunteers with firearms experience who have no interest in just sitting around, waiting to die. The plan is simple: when the bugs pull back, and they always do eventually, we sneak into the station, grab what we can, and get back to the bulkhead door that keeps home separate from the hive before the bugs get us. We've got plans to expand too, if we find any other survivors, but I don't have much hope that there's anyone other than us left in our section of the station. I look forward to being proven wrong.
Today was the first day we made a push back into the station.
