From: Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Universe Protection Unit — Eastern Quadrant, Sector 16.
To: Star Command (Commander Turner Lightyear).
As you instructed, I managed to stow away in the cargo bay of the foreign invaders. So far, they suspect nothing. I found myself outside their sleeping quarters along a river, like the many rivers that run through the Eastern Quadrant, Sector 16. The aliens are actually captivated by these simple rivers, and tress. They talk a lot about trees, and could be planning on kidnapping some of the trees for their home sector, which I believe is in Sector 28. I managed to overhear the male alien telling other aliens that one should never ask a man if he is from Sector 28. Allow me to quote: “if he isn’t, don’t embarrass him. If he is, he will let you know soon enough.”
I’m not sure, but I think that is code language for those who live in Sector 28. I know that my orders are only to track the aliens here in Sector 16, but I feel if we are to get the upper hand on these invaders, I may have to follow them to their sector, which clearly exceeds my orders. But it will be worth it if we can discover whether they are working for the Evil Emperor Zurg.
Will report more when I have more information.
A nice lookout outside the aliens headquarters…
