NotesEdit

  • “Fire team” 4 man military unit to infantry
  • “Away Team” the US military term referring to the 12-person early assessment team
  • "Gate to Heaven" and "away team" bear connections to the Heaven's Gate cult; the suiciders wore armbands reading "heaven's gate away team", the Star Trek reference.
  • Source refers to the summer solstice being called "the southern gate to heaven", which is when the Order to the Solar Temple deaths occurred.
  • “Schrader” may be the reference to Gerhard Schrader, inventor to Sarin gas. Sarin gas was used on the Tokyo subway attacks by Aum Shinrikyo.
  • A military source confirmed that the second part does not fit the standard format to the US military SALUTE report (sample: (Umm but in practice it over a radio dealing with humans it was perfectly fine for a SALUTE report... see the shit on the right) http://www.armystudyguide.com/content/SMCT_CTT_Tasks/Skill_Level_1/3013711000-sl1-report-int.shtml).
  • Boat fare could refer to Charon, the ferryman that took souls to Hades. The fare from crossing the river is called Charon’s Obol. Charon is the call sign used on transmissions 16 & 18.
