- The Escort Council mission is to extract Dr. Marazuki.
- The starting room has four exits.
- Taking the back exit gives the squad two routes around the edges of the map.
- There is a two story building with computers in the lower floor and a telescope in the higher floor with good visibility over the Skyranger pickup spot.
- There is a small square storage building near the tanks and a truck. All walls can easily be blown out, with the roof left hovering in mid-air.
- Starting Locations - near an observatory with a large telescope (Escort) or on the entrance to the outpost (Abductions, Asset Recovery).
- On the Enemy Within DLC version (EWI) the starting location for the Abductions has been altered.
