"One of the scientists serving in a remote observatory used for tracking and monitoring UFO activity in [COUNCIL NATION] has come under attack. We cannot allow the aliens to threaten any personnel contributing information to the XCOM project. We'll need you to deploy a squad and ensure his safe return."
The mission takes place in the Research Outpost map, which has a large and a small observatories in opposite corners of one side of the map and numerous biohazard tanks and a small storage building on the other side. Your squad starts inside the main room of the large observatory and must make their way to the EVAC zone out beyond the small one.

- "Thank you for coming to my aid. I only hope my data is beneficial to the cause."
