The field team was debriefed today. The higher-ups are regarding the mission as a partial success: we recovered a lot of interesting artefacts from the cavern. The personnel losses are tragic, but not unusual in this business. The search for Victoria was speculative anyway, so it's no big loss that we didn't find it.
Everything we recovered from the cavern has been handed over to various other departments for examination, and the field team has been bolstered by a new influx of researchers from elsewhere in the facility. It looks like we'll be going straight back out. I don't know if this is standard practice, or just a way to take our minds off of losing all those colleagues. They're outlining the mission tomorrow; we should be heading out the day after.
