Full description and transcript

A transcript of a conversation between Central and Monst3r, intercepted by an FTM listening station. The conversation is dated September 15th, 2074. As it presumably takes place before the raid on the HQ, this means the events of the main campaign took place after this date in the final few months of 2074. Of further note is the message in the bottom-right corner where the FTM recruitment departing is soliciting department heads for employees to use as human test subjects. As the message is looking for subjects with a (presumably) low score of EM (electromagnetic) sensitivity, this may refer to the development of FTM's Barrier Guards.

A visual representation of a facility (reminiscent of what you see in tactical view) as seen by Incognita.

Full description and transcript
Presumably a building where an infiltration has been detected and reinforcements are being dispatched. The usage of “No live subjects are required this time”, in this context, suggests the corps use prisoners as test subjects, but in this case, there is no need for them and therefore no need to try to take the intruders alive.

Banks assessing a Primary Server Terminal and looking back at Nika. Here, Banks looks to be dealing directly with Shopcat, who is not particularly happy that the team is assessing the software shop from inside the enemy mainframe. This may explain why Shopcat releases daemons on you in the mission when you break the connection.

The first person view through a guard's tactical HUD overlay showing Nika and Dr. Xu on an infiltration. Note: Dr. Xu's age (47) here contradicts his in-game age (42) and the date of the Guangdong incident he's suspected to have been involved is during the time he was incarcerated. These are likely minor continuity errors (or Dr. Xu was aged down after this).

A book in the process of being scanned, with a rifle leaning against the wall. Given that the book references a Dr. Malik, this likely represents Shalem 11 scanning in a book that has an article about his mother.
