Ok. Energen power station, superhuman. It's an early mission, so I don't expect much. A few multiworms, anthropods, spitters.

I land, set my people up, and wait.

About three minutes later, the mission ends.

"All hostile units have fled the combat zone. You win"

...What? I didn't even fire a shot!

I did get a chrysalis. I think my mission total score was 6.

Hey, it happens. I once had a mission where I only met one brainsucker. I'm assuming every other alien had escaped by the time I located it. Then there was that one case where I beat a mission in record time when all 5 skeletoids started in one of those 60's technicolor decor apartment rooms a few paces away from where my agents started. It was an utter toxigun massacre by one agent.

This wouldn't happen to have happened at one of the next-door sites around a recent drop site would it? I imagine the activity was so low that you could've just let it go and it would've died off naturally.

No, it was right after a UFO dropped some aliens. I did see a couple multiworms while I was running to where I was setting up my killzones, though I never saw them again.

An Energen station seems to have narrow corridors near edge with exits. So sometimes soldiers left ocassionsly battlefield. I think multiworms may too.
