Good day, Maverick. I am Lt. Etienne 'Doomsday' Montclair. Yes, I can see that you're curious. What you see is the markings of a Maori warrior. Let me tell you, Maverick...I have considered our position here in the Firekka System. Even if we were to retreat immediately, I doubt we would survive. This is undoubtedly the worst tactical situation I've ever seen. Aboard the Austin, many people laugh about my grim predictions. Despite my certainty that we will eventually be defeated by the Kilrathi--- ---we have survived to succeed thus far. But this time, I am certain there is no escape for us.
