Zavala: This is Operation Thunderbolt. Ahsa has alerted us to a shelf of coral infested with a fungal spore we can use. However, it's in hostile territory.
Sloane: Always is, was, will be.
Zavala: Indeed. Forward intel reports a Wrathborn Servitor patrols the area—and it is not alone. You have two sites to hit. Deploy excavation equipment, defend, and extract. Deputy Commander. Guardian. Divide and conquer. Bring the Drifter what he needs.
Lord Saladin: I'm reading you, Guardians.
Sloane: So the old man asked you to babysit?
Lord Saladin: I'm your air superiority.
Sloane: From aboard a Cabal cruiser? Never thought I'd see the day.
Lord Saladin: Meet the Empress. Then I'll hear your judgement.
Sloane: Fair enough. To be honest, it's just nice to be back running with the both of you.
Lord Saladin: On that, we can agree.
Sloane: That Servitor's onto us. I just met contact. Let's hustle, Guardian.
Lord Saladin: It's been an age since I've seen you fight, Sloane. Had you been with us on the dragon hunts… You're the bait now. Guardian, you're next.
Sloane: Goes against all my instincts, but I'll try to make myself look delicious.
Sloane: Deploying drill. Let's get loud, Guardian.
Lord Saladin: You'll need to keep those drills fueled and intact.
Lord Saladin: Drill offline! Refuel it!
Xivu Arath: DROWN THIS GIFT, AND REVEL IN IT. KNEEL, THAT I MAY LAY MY BLADE ACROSS THINE BREAST… THE QUIVER OF YOUR HEART TO RESONATE ITS BLACK EDGE.
Sloane: Get out… of my head…
Sloane: Servitor’s coming in hot, Guardian.
Lord Saladin: Let it take you. Then… meet their challenge.
Sloane: I bruised it for you, now take it down!
Sloane: Sites are secure, and you just punched us a way out.
Lord Saladin: Good. You haven't lost a step.
Sloane: Well, I've had a lot of dive time. But the Guardian took to the sea like a fish. Send over the submersible beacon and let's transmat this haul back to the rig.
Lord Saladin: You're sure this new ally of yours is trustworthy?
Sloane: Hasn't let me down yet. You asked me to trust you about the empress? Trust me about Ahsa.
