The surprise attacks from the Neo-Sapiens is proving effective. Venus and Mars are easy targets, but the icing on the cake for the General Phaeton is overtaking Earth. Admiral Winfield's absence has put Captain Marcus in charge and he is foolishly commanding the Exo-fleet into a Neo-Sapien trap. The resistance on Earth is gaining momentum, but are still under matched against the Neo-Sapiens. A final clumsy move by Captain Marcus has put Lt. Marsh into the Brig. and the Exosquad is now leaderless.
