Present: Tiran Kandros (Nexus Militia/APEX Leadership), Evfra de Tershaav (Angaran Resistance Leader, Operations Director)
Evfra de Tershaav: The information your APEX teams retrieved from the kett is… disturbing. If it's accurate.
Tiran Kandros: My people are the best. We can trust their intel.
Evfra: From what we've translated, these… krogan? Is that how it's said? The krogan scouts were taken by the kett—
Kandros: Like we suspected. Damn it.
Evfra: But these records show that after the usual tests, the krogan were picked as potential "khesorai." A kett word that crops up in their comms. It usually signals that some senior kett thinks a prisoner is… worthy.
Kandros: Worthy for what? More of their experiments?
Evfra: For a process that—hmm. Better not discuss it over these channels. For now, just know the kett call it "Exaltation." Those who endure this process are never the same.
Kandros: Well, if we don't know exactly what the kett are doing, we might know where. I have reports that a massive kett ship has suddenly changed course. She's skirting systems close to our Nexus—might even be heading for the station itself.
Evfra: Likely testing your defenses. It could be a coincidence.
Kandros: A coincidence too far. My scouts picked up evidence that krogan were taken onto that ship. That's enough for me: I'm sending APEX teams to board it and deal with the kett before they get within a parsec of the Nexus.
Evfra: Pledge to share your findings, and I'll commit Resistance assets to their mission. What do you expect them to find?
Kandros: Trouble. But trouble is where APEX are at their best.
Once a Krogan scout who was captured by the kett, he was forced into the horrific “Exaltation” process… and now emerges as a frightening new creature ready to unleash its wrath!
This kett ship is adrift in the Scourge. Symbolically important to the kett, its databanks are also full of the information valuable to those who can decipher it. Damage to the ship requires sections to be sealed off and re-opened for the militia to proceed, gathering information before they meet an extraction shuttle.
A number of krogan scout patrols have gone missing on a kett-held planet. Their last known position was near Firebase Paradox, a kett base built around Remnant artifacts they've been analyzing and exporting off-planet. We need to fan out and investigate.
