“Ground team to control,” Rin responded in a practiced manner. “Everything is good down here. We’re about to begin our ascent.”

"Team eight, Control - copy. Drop sequence initiating!" Frank hastily calibrated the drop pod to the last known location of team nine."Team eight Gary here. Ready to launch. Give us the details on the way down and give team nine our expected drop zone."
