An unmarked grave is all that remains of a Searcher’s secretive life.  His research notes and the rare earth he collected and protected with his life must be recovered.  This is exactly what our adversaries want…a smaller network with fewer leads to chase down.  At stake is understanding an ancient history of riddles that will decode the locations of material not from this earth.  Until now, separation of these materials had ensured sub-critical mass stability.  From what we’ve learned, it appears that the time has come to bring these materials together and to initiate their intended purpose.
