Lance Corporal Jim Kasulka of the United States Colonial Marine Corps had this story to relate:

"There's this colony - outbound in the arm - on some Terraformed rockball orbiting Zeta Reticuli. Apparently, some crazy woman appeared at Gateway six months back, said she landed on the place back in the '20s and some bugs — big alien sonofabitches — overran her ship and ate her crew. She said she escaped by blowing the bugs out the airlock and then froze herself until a rescue ship came along — nearly sixty years later! Anyway, th' ICC asks Space Command to send in some squads of Colonial Marines, armed to the teeth and ready for bear, to recon the planet.
"They never came back.
"True story."
