|***INCOMING MESSAGE FROM ENKIDU***
Captain Mathers wishes me to tell the crew, "Well done." The Covenant frigate has been destroyed.
The Lebanon has taken more damage than we had hoped, however, and we can no longer enter Slipspace or use the main engine. Captain Mathers has initiated article 2 of the Cole Protocol and has ordered the crew to prepare to abandon the ship. Frigid is reachable but we do not have enough time to correct the Lebanon's trajectory with our available thrust.
Captain Mathers is going to perform a slingshot around the primary sun. This will allow him and a skeleton crew enough time to refine the trajectory using our remaining thrusters and make what repairs they can. You can understand that this is risky.
In the meantime, you and your team have been ordered to finish reviving the remaining crew and to collect survival gear. You must finish evacuating the Lebanon no later than 12:23; the Pelicans' launch window closes then. I recommend you proceed to one of the Pelicans as soon as you can after reviving the crew. Use the lifeboats only on Captain Mathers' order, as some have been damaged in the battle.
As per Article 2, I am compacting myself in preparation for a hard transfer off-ship. I will be unavailable for much of the time until then.
