From the Command Console of "Silent Eagle", Captain Guy Daniels:
I should have probably figured this was a trap; reviewing the old memo again, this thing's riddled with errors. I guess I got too excited. While I am overseeing the salvage operations here in the caldera, Wolfpack is informing me that they were able to also surprise and decimate their enemies at their own coordinates with no problems, aside for the fact that Dagmar Aslin was tragically killed by an unlucky Autocannon/20 shot to the head. Death aside, we now have more of their 'Mechs than they have ours, by a ratio of one to none.
According to the people we have captured here in Regal's Bowl, the pirates do not appear to be affiliated with any house or periphery nation; this was just another semi-organized outfit trying to harass the forces of Pitkin into submission. It might explain why for years Pitkin did not see much in the way of reinforcements for so long until we showed up, as House Davion feared giving up more and more advanced technology to said pirate invaders. With this batch out of the way, we sincerely hope we don't see too many more of them here.
Our newest crew member, Outlaw, I would say handled himself very well out there. I hope he sticks around for as long as possible. And Blitz, everyone has heard your complaints about being cut loose as mercenaries, and ... well, Thomas Gervais says that he suddenly has an opening within the Wolfpack Command Lance if you want to stick around there. I have no doubt that many other units across the AFFC would be happy to have you, too.
I think this is when we tell you that it's time to cut you guys loose, once the inventory on the DropShips Pinion and Keg Party have been straightened out. Rumors are trickling all the way down here that the Oberon Confederation is making a big push on Lyran and Rasalhague territories, so I imagine that is where there is going to be the most work. The AFFC has hired a new XO as well as a new Command Console pilot for your mercenary outing, you'll meet them both soon enough. They'll be arriving planetside in a couple weeks. I will be taking over the role of XO for Wolfpack, since I've wanted to stay here and call this world home.
I wish you all luck on your future endeavors!
