Thought for the Day: "Innocence is a Cruel Cloak"
The final transmission of Inquisitor Amalthea from Knossos Prime Indicates Hive Fleet Minotaur is particularly rapacious. High Magos Biologus Siolon Tarannin has provided us with several strategic and operational scenarios. Tactical readouts at your discretion.
We have every reason to believe that a tendril of Minotaur has split from the Knossos path and is headed toward the Diapsis Reach of the Fulguron Sub. Needless to say this complicates the already delicate scenario you detailed to me in your prior communique. Given the presence of Waaagh Gutshoota on Pyrrhon and a possible Chaos incursion uncovered by your team on Ark Murray, the Tyranids may yet plunge the entire subsector into outright and irrevocable war.
The Iron Hands will undoubtedly intervene to protect their interests on Brevis, so it is the opinion of the Board that you prioritize in favor of cordoning off Daron's World as the swarm will probably favor attacking that colony as opposed to crossing the Gadarene Abyssal with its high incidence of warp storms and other unexplained phenomena.
