Official Transcript: Nexus-Aya Defense Communication 027
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.
