Bear and Dr. Lambshead strain to hear the German voice broadcasting over the radio. The transmission is filled with static and strange noises garble the message. Suddenly, the message becomes clear and is easily understood.
“This is Expedition 12. We have achieved success. The door on Skull Island proved viable. Proceed to rendezvous with rear guard and establish supply depot. Forward camp and perimeter have been established. Glory to the Fatherland!”
The message seems to repeat before the voice is lost again in the static.
While listening to the broadcast, Bear continues to climb the Daedalus above the approaching storm. The craft responds smoothly and seemingly without effort. The German zeppelin is obscured from sight and the view below is replaced by dark clouds and lightning. Above the stars of the night sky are visible.
