I like it, I think this one is close to completion, just a comment

"Darn, I could use a pizza myself right now..."
Audio log by Dr. J. Davies - released of duty for ordering food to "the vicinity of the main elevator".

I think this still needs some work, I read it completely and when you read the fluff text, it's hard to associate it with the rest of the text at once, even though you explained it to me before, maybe something else?

I'd be happy! But I can't get any ideas with this... Hm....
How about:
"Xenium! So much? Everything in my lab!"

Of course I have gone mad with power! It would be completely ridiculous to go mad without power!
And no, this is not a quote from the Simpson's movie, I want it on paper, that I actually wrote that quite some time before the movie came out.

"Triangulation of flight paths, interpolation of possible location, detection pattern analysis... what a load of crap. If we really want to know where they are, how about we just wait for them to order pizza and then follow the delivery guy... what? Why are you looking at me like that?"
- Sgt. Matthew Bodwin, to X-Corps researcher
I doubt, therefore I might be.

buhuhuuu :Tantrum: noono gets my goofy sense of humor... ;)
Ok, I thought, they grounded a supply UFO with a lot of Xenium, bring it back to base and a scientist is so greedy and hot to research it that he wants it all. But nevertheless, if one has to explain it it's not funny anymore, so I'll give up on this fluff. Anyone else has a godd idea for this one? :)

oh, sorry was replying while you wrote it... :) I like it, though it is a little long... what do you think about cutting the second sentence?

"Triangulation of flight paths, interpolation of possible location, detection pattern analysis... what a load of crap. Let's just ask the Pizza Boy...? What?"
- Sgt. Matthew Bodwin, to X-Corps researcher

Oh, and now that I think about it, maybe it fits better to Alien Base? Or Did I get it wrong?

I kinda like the long version better, has more "feeling" :P
Now I get your fluff, it's just that it's maybe too short to be easily understandable at first... maybe.

:) So lets wait if there are anymore oppinions, and if not we will have to discuss which one we'll take.

:zzzzz: :huh: OMG What? Oh, yes... :P
No, I was just waiting for more comments. :) So here it is! (only slight modificatons, rephrasing of Moriartys fluff, hope it's now a little bit more... err... fluid... If not, take the original Version. Have fun :)

ALIEN SUPPLY
X-Net://Pegasus.Net/Alien/Research/Alien Supply

As any military operation of this extent, the Alien invasion is a massive logistical undertaking, which begins with the setting of footholds on strategic positions, namely in this opportunity, on our own planet, from where close-up observation and quick attacks are possible. The need for a steady supply route is evident as we assume most of the construction materials come from an off-world location.

To ensure this permanent flow of material and personell to and from of earth it seems that for each location the aliens established several flight corridors which apparently are used in random order, so we can never tell from which direction a freighter might enter the atmosphere or where it might head next.
In addition to this we could observe the usage of multiple freighters targeting one coordinate after we downed several supply UFOs. As reaction to massive X-Corps activity in a region several supply missions were escorted by protective ships. In some cases we monitored diversionary maneuvers like immense sightings in remote areas, while a single freighter tried to reach its destination. We can assume that vast freighter losses will lead to a change in this relatively defensive strategies and might provoke a retaliation mission.

An analysis of the alien flight plans has revealed that once a new alien base is to be established, frequent supply missions, beginning with the construction of the foundation and throughout the entire building process are performed.
In the first days the large Alien Freighters carry building materials such as raw alien alloys and pre-manufactured wall parts, up to entire, almost functional, base elements as well as heavy construction site equipment, while later on life-support systems and other high-technical equipment is delivered. From that on the new base is fully operational and expeditiously expanded. During the whole operational time the supply missions continue on in a reduced frequency.

As the Alien bases donít seem to be able to produce every needed good themselves, the freighters carry an amount of various cargo like weaponry, food, medical equipment and in particular the rare Xenium-122 to supply existing outposts. We also discovered several tanks containing a trace-element enriched gas-mixture which we assume to be necessary for the aliensí convenience during long term sojourns. Although we know they are able to breath our atmosphere, it seems to be easier for them to breathe air which is modified with this special gas mixture. On their way back Ė leaving the earth orbit Ė they often carry large tanks filled with organic fluids as well as containers packed with various plants.

Whenever a huge frequency of supply missions is noticed, the construction of a new alien base in the surrounding area can be assumed. Extensive scouting missions in these sectors are recommended.

I still feel Moriarty's original fluff reads better, but those are stupid little details :P, any closing comments, anyone?

Just noticed something.

In addition to this we could observe the usage of multiple freighters targeting one coordinate after we downed several supply UFOs. As reaction to massive X-Corps activity in a region several supply missions were escorted by protective ships. In some cases we monitored diversionary maneuvers like immense sightings in remote areas, while a single freighter tried to reach its destination.

This says we have already monitored them, and that there has already been a massive X-Corps activity in a region and as a result supply shipts were escorted, but remember there is a chance this text is obtained in the very early stages of the game, as you only need to capture and interrogate a Navigator.

Hm, you have a point there. So, what do you think? Should we just let the interrogated Alien speak?

In addition to this the interrogated Alien spoke of plans for multiple freighters targeting one coordinate and  other diversionary maneuvers like immense Alien activity in remote areas. It seems that we'll even have to expect escorted freighters as a reaction to massive X-Corps activity in a certain area.
