Comrades, today is the day we hoped would never come, but prepared for nevertheless. The Rikti have come again. They were deadly before; they have had years to learn and they will be deadlier now. Make no mistake, this is a war, and there will be no quarter given. The Rikti will not rest until humankind is extinct. That is, and always has been, their goal.
And we will stop them.
We will fall and rise again. We will fight them alone and with our allies. We will fight them until our guns run out of ammunition, our powers are drained, our bodies battered, and still we will fight them with our bare hands.
We will not fail.
We are CCCP. Failure is not an option.
