The message bounces across several R-UPA automatic probes before reaching a Protector station. One of the operators watches as the message scrolls onto his screen.
He watches in mute disbelief as the rest of the messages also arrive. He stabs a button on his control panel and almost immediately hears the office door slam open and the Officer run over to him.
Officer Tarin: "What's going on?"
Operator: "Sir, we picked up a odd transmission. They don't seem to be direct transmissions, cause they bounced around our probes before arriving here."
Officer Tarin: "Where is it from?"
Operator: "It's difficult to pinpoint the location. These transmissions are weaker than a rifleman with his rifle. However, they sent us a rather interesting message. Says they're from bloody Earth."
Officer Tarin: "They don't seem hostile. Send back a message and cross your fingers they aren't like us and try to exterminate anything that got into their way." He adds under his breath, "In the alien purge"
Operator: "Seems interesting they haven't picked up our Dominator station that's orbiting Jupiter, but I'll get on to it."
The Protector station beams a message back to Earth, directly. The message was simple.
