USS Sephora found the Sulaco which is now orbiting LV-426. Captain Cruz sends a detachment of marines to locate and recover the flight data recorder, unfortunately the group was attacked by unknown entities.

Upon arriving on the Sulaco, Winter meets Paluski who try to revive Tanaka, but he is already dead.
