League Invasion Cube 001 reporting.

League Invasion Cube 001 will now leave the scheduled league and freely wander in search of targets for assimilation. Resistance is futile.

Two of Sixteen has become more agile.
Seven of Sixteen has acquired Dodge
Eight of Sixteen has acquired Block

Secret Invasion Cube 001 reporting initial encounter with a bipedal carcharias species. The species has integrated with common humans and are formidable opponents.

The encounter was successful as the creatures were driven into deep waters. Unfortunately, no specimens were obtained. However, one skill-less human was successfully assimilated to the collective.

The full battle log has been forwarded for analysis.

Secret Invasion Cube 003 has been drawn to the Old World Rookie Rumble Nebula #35 where it has made initial contact with some form of infernal vulcan subrace and their human pets. The vulcans employed sonic claws and some form of mind confusing ability which the collective made great effort to study closer. While able to incapacitate seven of the pets, we were unable to collect any specimens. Oddly we encountered no visible males amongst the vulcans or their pets, although it may be the prominent use of claws and potential emasculation which cause males in this culture to take on more feminine appearances.

The vulcans fled the system, and the collective will continue deeper into the Nebula.

Four of Fifteen was destroyed.
Two of Fifteen, observing the vulcan's movements closely, has developed greater coordinated acuity.
Nine of Fifteen has upgraded its routines related to close combat.

A full battle report has been filed for the benefit of all collectives.

SL Invasion Cube reporting encounter with coalition of mixed species society who refer to themselves as Ind. Skirmish took place in a resource rich valley near a large river. The expedition crew was repelled but sustained no damage. Additionally, one specimen was collected for assimilation. The individual would be considered human except for the fact that it had four arms.

Individual is assimilated and a log of the subject is attached here.

Secret Invasion Cube 003 continues its exploration of the Old World Rookie Rumble Nebula #35. A disturbing species of large animated pestilence and decay were encountered. A horde of juvenile members of the species were also in attendance. The largest of the species lumbered along and presented a significant challenge to the collection teams. While the collection of a juvenile was a priority, teams were unable to contain them. Several of the adults were damaged, only for them to reform later. The creatures were driven away, but other collectives should be advised that all members of the species should be prioritized for later collection.

Two of fifteen has improved its aptitude in close combat.

A full battle report has been filed for the benefit of all collectives.

Clarification: Can resources be utilized to reactivate the formerly destroyed Four of Fifteen, or must an additional body be collected?

My understanding is that Marauders can be purchased at any time. Only positionals must be assimilated.
