"Now that Hyperion's gone, we got ourselves a window of opportunity. Time to execute the maneuver that'll put us on the path to paradise. Dropships are prepped, plans are in motion. The men are rearing to go. They haven't had a good fight in years. (chuckle) Oh, these Crimson Raider idiots have no idea what's about to hit 'em.
