After your report on the happenings in and around old Atlanta Capt Harrison commends you on your success and recommends your mission be expanded to include gathering additional intelligence assets. IE: Recruit local resistance members to report any information they can gather on the Invid and report on any assets they have at their disposal. Including weapons and mecha as well as trained pilots. Captain Harrison also states that if necessary more radios could be dropped by a shadow beta if the locals do not already have a radio that can link with the communications array in orbit.
If your team is successful at acquiring more protoculture maybe it can be shared to arm the resistance mecha as well.
