Having recently discovered an alien data cache storing valuable enemy intelligence, I can dedicate my teams resources to decrypting the files and ensuring that we recover the large amount of Intel stored within.
The alien data cache appears to be a physical storage device intended for direct interface with the datapads we've seen the ADVENT forces carrying in the field. Having successfully decrypted the files, including a variety of tactical data and varying intelligence, I've yet to discover what it is about this data in particular that requires the aliens to maintain physical stores of critical information. Considering the sophistication of their technology in general, one would think the inherent security risks involved would be enough to dissuade them. In any case, it can only benefit us to seize these assets whenever possible. R.Tygan
