    • Corman: Everything I could find suggested that the satellite was crashed on purpose.
      Madeline: Do you know by whom?
      Corman: I was working on that when you called me. But everything that I could see leads back to Oversight or Center.
      Operations: Can you think of a reason why Oversight would intentionally crash a satellite containing valuable data right into the heart of a terrorist base?
      Corman: I don't know. Not unless...
      Madeline: Go on.
      Corman: Well, if the data was useless. Providing the enemy with useless intel would distract them for years.
      Madeline: You're very astute.
      Corman: Thank you. But Michael and Nikita... were sent in to make it look convincing. To make every effort to retrieve the data. But Michael won't fail. He's the best.
      Madeline: You've put the pieces together quite well.
      Corman: And if Michael dies trying... it'll make it look all the more convincing.
      Operations: Very good Mr. Corman.
      Madeline: (to operatives) Take him to containment.
