Sir you asked me to look into what that strange device was we found in quarantine section 4438? Well I've been doing some research on the device and I'm puzzled. It’s acting as a storage device for data on the Marauders but seems to only be one way in data communication transmission, almost as if it acts as a local hub for... Well I just don't know. Every attempt I tried was unsuccessful in finding out what information the device holds, I even tried a full memory dump and I just couldn’t figure it out. I was ready to give up on the project and file it in accordance with section 19 of the Salvaged Technology requirements and then it hit me... It was so obvious. The unit was still producing a small power footprint, so maybe it’s still receiving data from... somewhere. I managed to track down the actual transmission the unit was receiving and I found data sir, Marauder data, hidden in the wavelengths. The data I've found is far too small to be the entire transmission and I believe we are close to finding out more, but I'm passing it onto some more guys here to see if we can't crack this baby wide open.

The following image is what we have been able to decode of the transmission. Clearly this is a Marauder unit, look at that logo, it’s them…

The image was easy enough to find, it was hidden in a data packet called "Description Of All…" and was called "MDR". However, I've also located five more data packets; each one with what I can only assume is code for what it contains inside...? The following are the remaining five codes. Why don’t you take a crack at it, see if you can’t beat our best brains here…

Data Packet One: "He Heals Our Fallen Brothers..." Answer - "locum"
Data Packet Two: "The Year Of Our Salvation..." Answer - "2155"
Data Packet Three: "He Gives Us Power To Fuel Destruction..." Answer - "infiltrator"
Data Packet Four: "The Year Of Life's End..." Answer - "2012"
Data Packet Five: "The Enemy We Face In Life And Death..." Answer - "cmc"

I'll keep you updated on progress sir.

No, I was just talking about the whole transmission thing. Like, open it with soldiers talking over transmissions. Would the pics be in the gallery?

Edit: I figured it out. I had to add '.jpg' at the end else I get an error. I wasn't thinking about that for some reason.

It looks like...Oh wait, I don't want to spoil it for anyone.
