    Now that your Advanced Training is over, it's time to get you back in action.
    Use your new-founded skills to solve this case.

    Use this thread to discuss Mission 10 of Season 2.
    Feel free to post theories, clues, hints, or anything else, as long as you DO NOT POST THE ANSWER.

    I will keep this thread updated as more gets posted.

    They don't make bugs like they used to.

    Audio part? Me and a few agent have been racking our brains for a while now.

    Just solved the part cron was asking about. Here's a nudge for anyone else stuck:

    Don't bother trying to analyze the audio, this is another research-based puzzle. The transmission is somewhat famous.

    I sat and wrote out each digit by hand VIA slowing audio down. that was a lot easier I was overthinking it again.

    I did the same looking for the puzzle pieces. It's straight up the original message, starting in the middle of the second line.

    In regards to the puzzle piece:

    The audio is important

    Found it by accident, still not sure how you're supposed to find it.

    If anyone is curious, the audio translates to (big hint)

    Also, for anyone struggling with the bug question, here's a couple of hints:
    Its from the same time period as the other items
    What's the worst that I can say? Things are better if I stay. So Long, and Good night! So long, not good night!

    Please excuse my troll brain, but where the fuck is the audio and other info referred to in Quinn's memo? I've tried everything I can find as an archive call number and nowt's working! :confused: Obviously that mean it's not in the archives, so where the ferk is it...?!

    The audio is in a link provided in the "Dark Signal" Part of the Mission

    Have some nudges, all:

    Old Scraps
    What does it say about the jacket in the memo? What does it tell us about the seaman who wore it? On what vessel did he serve? What was his role there? If a navy craft or crafts is involved in mysterious paranomal Black-Watchmen like circumstances it might become a famous story.

    Infestation
    Does that bug have any distinctive features? For example, we know all scorpions (not insects, I know) have claws and a stinging tail. Even amongst scorpions, we can tell species apart by their individual features. Although the image is pretty grainy, what information is given or can we observe about the bug in front of us? Maybe something is unique.

    Dark Signal
    My strategy here is to use Occam's razor. It is obviously a techno song. Well, probably not, but it does appear to be made of digital instrumentation. The foundation of all digital technology is 1's and 0's, binary. Signals are usually transmitted via radio. There is a well-known binary radio signal that would be of interest to our organization.
