The generic population of Cydonia has numerous comments they may make.


  • Can you believe people used to think the nearby mountain was a face on the surface of Mars? Ridiculous, huh? Doesn't look anything like one!
  • That Terrormorph attack in New Atlantis... I sure hope nothing like that ever happens here!
  • I heard they reopened that Red Devils HQ, even got some of the same crew running it. I sure hope they know what they're doing.
  • Phew, what a long day.
  • I heard they found another new fresh water deposit in one of the mines. So much better than paying those ridiculous import prices.
  • "Go to Mars!" they said. "The pay is great!" they said. So's the crippling depression.
  • Before you say anything, no Mars is nothing like Earth. Heck, even Earth is nothing like what Earth used to be.
  • What a day, huh?
  • Ahh, there's nothing like fresh air filters, am I right?
  • Howzit?
  • Hey there.
  • How goes?
  • I swear that warning klaxon still startles me every time.
  • I hope no one tears down the little green guy posters I've been seeing. They add a lot of charm to this place.
  • I wonder what's up with all the drawings I've seen popping up on the walls lately. I've got to admit. They're pretty cute.
  • So I guess Woodard is acting governor now?
  • I can't believe Governor Hurst just stepped down so suddenly. I wonder what really happened.
  • There's nothing like seeing old Sol coming through the big window in the morning.
  • Mars isn't for everybody.
  • Most visitors can't wait to get off this rock.
  • It's not easy living in Cydonia.
  • Just passing through, or here to stay?
  • I wish there was more to do around here. Drinking gets old.
  • It's hard not to worry when your spouse is the one doing all the hard work down in the mines.
  • Sometimes it feels like the UC forgets we're out here, but there'd be no UC if it hadn't been for Mars.
  • Cydonia's not so bad. Honest work, good pay. I can't complain.
  • Red and orange. Everything's red and orange as far as the eye can see. It can start to wear on you.
  • The miners have a secret about something they call the "Heart of Mars." I overheard one of 'em talking about it at the bar. Laylah, I think it was?


  • Keep your eyes peeled for signs of Terrormorph activity. After what happened to our forces in New Atlantis, we need to be extra vigilant.
  • *sigh* Almost break time. C'mon, you can make it.
  • Watch out for the robots. They're surprisingly sneaky.
  • Do your part to keep Cydonia graffiti-free.
  • Ever been to Akila? Those security uniforms are way cooler than anything we've got.
  • Cydonia can have a depressing effect on some people. Make sure to get yourself help before it becomes a problem.
  • Used to think I was Vanguard material... until I discovered that space travel turns my stomach in knots.
  • Be careful down near the mines and enter any active sites at your own risk.
  • I know we're supposed to clean up vandalism, but I just can't bear to take down some of the drawings I've seen recently.
  • I heard you helped out Mitch. I know he won't give up looking for the rest of those books.
  • My buddy Mitch keeps asking if I can help him out with something, but I just don't have the time.
  • Heard you helped us book that Hank Ferraro guy. Good job.
  • Always nice to kick back at the Broken Spear after a long day.
  • Careful near the railings on the upper levels. It's a long way down.
  • Crime's at an all-time low around Cydonia. Let's keep it that way.
  • Keep a look out. Notify us if you see anything suspicious.
  • The Community Center on P1 is a good place to connect with others, or fulfill any spiritual needs you may have.
  • You look hurt. Might want to head on over to Reliant. Dr. Flynn will get you patched up.
  • The UC Exchange is a great place to buy your weapons, just... make sure to keep them holstered at all times.
  • If you're going to use the elevators or stairs to reach the other levels, try to keep them clean. I hate filing litter reports.
  • Just because the governor's office is right out there on the main level, doesn't mean it's not secure.
  • The Luxe condos aren't anything special, but plenty of people call them home.
  • The miners pretty much run the lower levels here.
  • I'm still shocked about Governor Hurst. Rumor is, he got into some shady stuff, but they won't tell us what.
  • Stay away from the Sixth Circle unless you're a miner. Or at least, don't come crying to me if anything happens to you.
  • That Tracker Agent was looking around for help with something. Told her I couldn't do it, but maybe someone else can?
  • Found a clutch of Heatleeches, uh, breeding in the utility section the other day. Not going to be able to get that image out of my head for a while.
  • Just a heads up. UC Science Division's apparently going to be coming through to sweep for Leeches. You know those little bastards are Terrormorphs?


  • I have no idea what they're doing training us out here like Red Devils when the Terrormorph Management Division doesn't even need us like that.
  • If Terrormorphs ever show up here like they did in New Atlantis, we'll be ready for 'em!
  • You hear about that new Terrormorph eradication program they got going? Shame it's not the same as the Red Devils of old times.
  • Civilians like you should keep to the city interior, and not interfere with our training.
  • Today, it's live fire exercises. Tomorrow, hiking miles over rough terrain. Not looking forward to that.
  • Glad I'm training out here and not on somewhere like the surface of Titan.
  • Stay clear of the range during live fire exercises. It should be obvious why.
  • You never know where you'll be sent out, so it's good to get some surface training.
  • The military life may be tough, but damn it, I'm going to make my family proud.
  • We'll be ready in case there's ever another colony war.
  • I'm just proud to serve the UC.
  • Word of advice, don't mess with marines.
  • I don't care what anyone says, this is still a tough assignment.
  • They may have disbanded the Red Devils long ago, but we can still be an elite fighting force.
  • Always be ready for anything. That's why training is important.
  • Why'd I have to be stationed on Mars, of all places?
  • If you can tough it out on Mars, you can tough it out anywhere.
  • Glad there ain't no wars, but we still need to be prepared.
  • Can't wait to get shipped off to another base.
  • Proud to be a UC Marine. Oorah!
  • The Red Devils used to train here on Mars. Imagine being part of that.


  • It's nice to have a robot assistant.
  • Hey, sorry. I'm trying to concentrate on something.
  • You should have seen the ship that came in yesterday. Looked like it fought the whole Crimson Fleet!
  • Don't worry. If your ship comes through here, we'll take good care of it.
  • I can't be responsible for you when the sparks go flying.
  • Howzit going?
  • Watch your step. This is a work site.
  • We've got some of the best mechanics in the business here.
  • Careful, we're working on some delicate stuff around here.
  • What do people put these poor engine parts through?
  • Three things this job's got plenty of - dust, leeches... and distractions.
  • UC brass has pledged Cydonia's going to be a zero Leech city. Sure. So long as they send us the help to find the things.


  • Thought we had struck oil, but it turns out it was just another deep water deposit. That would have been wild.
  • Don't want to catch yourself with a loose grip on your equipment when one of those particle detonations goes off.
  • I sure hope this hearing loss isn't permanent.
  • People always ask me what I think about mining. It rocks! ... God, I'm so tired.
  • Hey, careful around the equipment. Don't want to lose an arm or something.
  • What's up?
  • Hey.
  • I could use a break.
  • We have the tech to instantly jump across the universe, you'd think someone would have invented a way to keep rocks out of boots.
  • Every time I see those drawings of the little creature with the space helmet, it reminds me that you can find joy anywhere, even Cydonia.
  • I can't believe Deimos has a psychologist on staff. What's up with that?
  • You can make a real good living working the mines here on Mars.
  • Hurst was alright as far as governors go, but I hope Woodard does more for us miners.
  • Hey, I heard a rumor that you're the one who made the new equipment possible. Thanks.
  • I still can't believe we finally got all those new mining tools. I was getting tired of my old ones breaking down all the time.
  • The new equipment is great. I finally feel like I'm working at full speed.
  • Working the deep mines... that's where you make the big bucks.
  • Sometimes I wish I had taken an easier job.
  • Am I glad I got this job instead of mining some dead rock out in the middle of nowhere.
  • Mars is ripe with resources, which means there's always going to be plenty of work.
  • Can't believe we're still pulling up huge mineral deposits after all this time.
  • Mining takes all types: young upstarts, former military, ex-cons. If you can lift a tool, and haul ore, you can mine.
  • This here's the most important work in the galaxy. We mine the resources that make spaceships possible.
  • This life ain't easy, but it pays the bills.
  • A friend offered me a nice cushy office job, but I'm making double out here in the Cydonia mines. Jokes on them!
  • Things can get pretty glum around here. If you ever need a little joy, go talk to that Renee kid. She's always trying to make people happy.
  • Laylah's been going on about the Heart of Mars again. When's she going to give it a rest?
  • Sometimes I feel like I deal with robots more than people in this job.
  • No major breakdowns or incidents today, thankfully.
  • Just doing the same thing I do everyday... supervising these machines so they don't break down.
  • Uch... Don't you hate it when your suit rides up?
  • Careful not to fall around here. We'd have to shut everything down to get you out.
  • Hey, howzit?
  • What a day.
  • How about that Martian weather, huh?
  • The machines are running smoothly today... Crap, I hope I didn't jinx it.
  • They've got it way easier on the inside. Try spending all day in a spacesuit and you'll know what I mean.


  • Error: Greeting procedure 005799BF not found.
  • Please remain two meters away for your safety.
  • Welcome to Cydonia. Stay out of my way.
  • Report any injuries I may cause to my supervisor.
  • Consider this unit always on the job.
  • Pardon me.
  • Hello.
  • This unit is not designed for pleasant conversation.
  • Worker robot coming through.
  • Please move, to avoid injury.
  • Tampering with a certified Deimos mining robot is forbidden. I would not recommend it unless you wish to test my defensive capabilities.
  • Iron deposit detected. Initiating evisceration protocols to remove mass from human body. Hah. Just kidding. My programmer had a sense of humor.
  • If you are looking for spare parts, look elsewhere. I need mine for structural stability.
  • Only a qualified supervisor may change my directives.
  • I'm under orders not to engage with non-personnel.


  • The "Hours without Incident" board will reset should the player attack an NPC.
