The skies darken... a Shadow falls over the Sector... and an old enemy returns.
  — Event Message #1 [src]

Corpus has re-entered the Sector. The last time we fought them, they brought their Night Owls and Cyclones to control the skies and it's clear they're after airborne dominance yet again. What horrors await us in the clouds?
  — Event Message #2 [src]

It seems Corpus has improved their original design of the Sandstorm. This threat cannot go unanswered, Commander. It is a call to war!
  — Event Message #3 [src]

Corpus have returned to the Sector and have focused their efforts squarely on aerial dominance. They bring with them the Nimbus, a powerful Area Damage helicopter and an Omega Sandstorm, a more fearsome version with greatly increased firepower. But why the focus on the skies? There is clearly more to Corpus's plan than meets the eye...
  — Event Message #4 [src]

We have intercepted a transmission Corpus was sending to a distant Sector, Commander, one we believed entirely inhospitable. Something doesn't add up. We are, of course, actively decoding it.
  — Event Message #5 [src]

Corpus's technical savvy continues to impress, Commander. The message had an imbedded subroutine that self-corrupted before we could get what we needed. However, we were able to make out a single word: Kane
  — Event Message #6 [src]
