    You have to accept that there are certain things you won't understand right away. Sector Seven is a special access division of the Government, convened in secret under President Hoover eighty years ago. You might remember NASA JPL lost the Beagle 2 Mars Rover? We told them to report the mission a complete failure. It wasn't. Beagle 2 transmitted for thirteen seconds. And now, Curiosty provided a similar thirteen second transmission before we lost contact. This was all classified ABOVE top secret... (Cue epic music)
