Attention all Ares Station Residents: A strange bug is loose on the station and no one is safe!
Chief Science Officer Thorpe has identified the insects as "deathmites," a virulent insect known to burrow under the skin and deposit millions of microscopic eggs in the lungs, which are then spread to others through the air by way of coughing. If you find yourself fatigued, stressed, coughing, bleeding profusely from every orifice, or choking, please report to Quantum Labs immediately.

The DynaMars Corporation regrets to inform all residents that the planned production of Hamlet has been cancelled due to an unexpected series of killings. Chief Security Officer Mackey reports that a large polar bear somehow found its way into the Area 3 Library, where it used the scheduled Hamlet auditions as an excuse to maul and maim as many humans is it could before it was shoed away by a Mobile Defense Sentry Unit.
The DynaMars Corporation reminds all residents that these things happen, and that there will be future plays to look forward to. In the meantime, please be vigilant and remain attentive to all duties.
Good News! Chief Science Officer Thorpe admitted that there is no deathmite infestation in Ares Station! Chief Science Officer Thorpe and his fellow scientists, lonely and seeking human contact, falsely reported the outbreak in order to get more visitors. The DynaMars Corporation wishes to apologize to all residents. As a result of this prank, Quantum Labs will have its funding cut by 30%.
The DynaMars Corporation wishes to inform all parties searching for Chief Librarian Hendren that the Auxiliary Waste Processing Center's Atmospheric Control Processor is malfunctioning. As a result, the atmosphere in the Auxiliary Waste Processing Center is extremely toxic. A replacement unit can be found in the Area 1 Cargo Bay in Shipping Crate #4728-231C.***04-14-2304 - New Entry
We regret to inform you that Shipping Crate #4728-231C contained a live polar bear. The DynaMars Corporation wishes to apologize to all those killed by the ravenous bear. The correct crate number is #4728-231B.
The DynaMars Corporation would also like to alert all residents that as many as two polar bears may be loose on the station. Having been awoken prematurely from cryosleep, both are hungry, angry, and very likely resentful of human beings. If you see one you are hereby ordered to subdue it immediately using only non-lethal force.

An audio diary belonging to CEO Davies was found near the entrance to the ancient caves. It is currently undergoing analysis by the DynaMars Corporation's Board of Directors, and will hopefully lead to the quick recovery of CEO Davies.

Congratulations to the team that successfully recovered the blue keycard necessary to access the Area 3 Library Non-Fiction Section. Although they lost five men recovering the keycard, they persevered like true fans of literature! They even recovered Chief Librarian Hendren, so mad and insane from toxic fumes that he has taken to eating his own hair and feces. Good job, team!
However, the DynaMars Corporation regrets to inform residents that E.M. Arbuckle was killed when his ship crashed into Phobos. The book signing is therefore cancelled.
After years of being misunderstood, I had hoped we finally had "our" story. I was wrong.
He had a yellow inflatable tube around his waist, the kind with a comical duck head. There was a tiny fish in one of his hands, and a trident in the other. In the background a squirrel wearing shades was water skiing.
For fans of meaningless awards, these awards are extra meaningless.
The Something Awful front page news tackles anything both off and on the Internet. Mostly "on" though, as we're all incredible nerds.
Keep up to date on the DynaMars Corporation's perpetually doomed efforts to colonize Mars.
