Name: The Coming War
Recorded 28th January 2017
Guardian flies toward Cliffside Fleetbase Korus, Phobos
Commander Zavala – Guardian, this is Commander Zavala. The Cabal base on Phobos is blasting a signal across all channels. If they’re willing to break transmission silence, this could be a prelude to a full-scale assault.
Ghost – We’re setting down on Phobos now.
Commander Zavala – I’ll be monitoring your feed, Ghost. Good luck to you both
Guardian lands in canyon just outside Fleetbase Korus
Cabal everywhere dead, Harvesters flee base.
Cabal base explodes
Ghost – Zavala, the Cabal are evacuating with extreme prejudice. They’re getting torn up down here.

Eris Morn – Something has drawn us here. I can feel it.
Commander Zavala – Guardian, I have asked Eris Morn to monitor the channel.
Eris Morn – I hear…whispers in the dark.
