#5 Why not blow it up while you are here?

Because it is an alien probe covered is space mollusks and we should not get involved in the interstellar war until all of our F-117 are fitted with Veritech abilities.

Japan has activated Yokushima and started the fueling process for Yamato just in case this is actually a vanguard using the Orionid Meteor Shower as cover.

In the meantime we must continue harvesting the Precursor Metal found under the Yellowstone Crash Sit. And wait.
