The terminals have been reordered to match the order you would read them during normal play and not the order in the map file. You can see the in-game order on this in-game map. This gives you a better appreciation for the different vignettes told in the Pfhor terminals at their appropriate in-game locations.


Where Some Rarely Go (Terminal 0)

The map in the terminal image is incorrectly oriented. It should be flipped vertically and then horizontally to obtain the correct orientation.

In the second screen of this terminal message the miscellaneous text at the start   $3C   is caused by a typing error during development.  The code   $C3   should have been used instead of   $3C   to set the terminal text color to green.  Indeed it wasn't actually needed and reflects a late change to the text before release. It has been reinstated here for authenticity. Thanks to wrkncacnter on Discord for spotting this.

If there is an armpit to the Lh'owon garrison, this is it. Perimeter Station 7AF is separated from the Pfhor concept of civilization by 200 klicks of filth-ridden swamp, choked with a thousand hungry F'lckta and as many years of S'pht debris.

It's also home to the Science Unit responsible for maintaining the water treatment facility for Planetary Command, and all of the Eastern Emplacements. My little group of humans can't hope to succeed unless the Pfhor ranks are in chaos. Sinking them under five meters of sludge should do the trick.

$3CThe base was established early in the recent wave of exploration of the planet, but operations were later moved north because of heavy surface radiation that interferes with transporters. The local soldiery are charged primarily with exterminating the F'lckta, who defend their ancestral wetlands with agonizing tenacity.

Find a Pfhor terminal with technical access to the main treatment plant, and we'll look for a weakness.

This Resupply Platform is likely to be checked regularly by the Pfhor living here, so you'll want to get out of the open quickly.

Good luck. I'll transport in ammunition when I can, but we're spread thin. The scoutship spotted our trick with the Armor Platform and is closing fast. I'll have to teach its captain a lesson.

Poor Engineer 1st Class K'all. Demoted to Engineer 3rd Class K'all. And then you killed him as he was updating his personal log.
This terminal is located in a small closed room with a single Pfhor fighter... presumably Engineer 3rd Class K'all.

Their activity cycle coincides with the period of gestation of their young, which are carried to term in the maw of the creature for a period of 15-19 local days. While the mandible appears to have vestigial musculature indicative of mastication and forceful ingestion consistent with a predator, the gizzard terminates in a womb rather than the digestive tract.

As field observations and several post-mortem examinations of fallen combatant members of Aggregate Rank indicate, the creatures attack with one favored foreclaw.

The foreclaw and maw are both used for territorial competition and display, as the dominance of a particular creature is measured by both the size of its territory and the range of its wanderings.

At the beginning of the mating cycle, approximately each 17th local day, the creatures release a cloud of eggs into their territorial waterway and begin a traverse of the surrounding region, battling with their neighbors for passage.

Each creature swallows any eggs it finds during its circuit, with more dominant creatures gaining access to a greater variety of eggs. The eggs are drawn into the womb for fertilization and gestation.

This terminal is located in a small closed room with a single Pfhor fighter. Is this Science Officer 2nd Class St'ngr? He must have got away the last time. St'ngr has been responsible for the disappearing Compilers and now you know why. Throw him into the crusher and see how he likes it. Note that you can actually do this by luring him into the active crusher and raising the door to seal him inside. Payback!

This first 'unfinished' message is not displayed in-game. No matter which way you take to get to the final terminal it does not display. You can bypass the Compiler crusher lab and the all important terminal with the schematic for the water treatment facility and you still get the second 'success' message. Why? Well this level's mission type is not set to Exploration, so the 'unfinished' message is never displayed.
