As some of you may know, the stu_fs2.vp file contains 27 voices for a strange multiplayer mission that, as far as I'm aware, does not exist or was never released to the public. I don't have much time for it these days, but I'm thinking it might be fun to try and reconstruct this mission at some point. These files are all Volition made and are canon material, although I would obviously have to extrapolate things a lot to make anything from them. Anyway, the main issue is that there are a few bits of text I can't make out. See if you can do any better than I could. Ux indicates an unknown word or words.
Greetings, Terrans. The crew of the GVD Zednanreh welcomes you to our vessel. We were U1 this region of the nebula to retrieve a Terran corvette, the GTCv Steadfast, and its escort. This vessel is the sole survivor of the engagement against a large Shivan battle group.
U1 = summoned?
After the battle, we received a brief encoded message indicating an approximate position and direction of movement. U2 avoid attracting the Shivans' attention.
U2 =probably "no further messages have been sent", but there's a missing word after that.
You must find the Steadfast and return it to GTVA space. We will deploy the GVA Suraim (U3) to aid our search. Your task is to protect the Seraim and any Terran survivors. Remember of these priorities during the mission.
Beware of Shivan attacks. The Shivan battle group is still present in this region. Engage and destroy all Shivan vessels you encounter. As you approach the Steadfast, the Shivans' attention may be drawn to it, increasing the danger to its crew. You must find them quickly and remove them to safety.
You were successful in rescuing the Steadfast. You have earned much honor and respect this day. I admit to many doubts about Terrans serving on Vasudan ships. I acknowledge my mistake and welcome your addition to our vessel's strength.
In your thirst for battle you neglect your objectives. You have failed. Such failure is not acceptable in a Vasudan, but perhaps Terrans have lower standards for required performance. Leave my presence now.
You have...adequately accomplished your objectives. No Vasudan would be proud of this performance, but perhaps Terrans have lower standards. You may return to your rest quarters now.
A Vasudan never leaves the field of battle without authorization from a superior officer. Your cowardice jeopardized the lives of our brothers and sisters. You are hereby stripped of your wings and all privileges bestowed upon you as an officer of the Galactic Terran-Vasudan Alliance. You will be taken into custody and handed over to the Terran 3rd Battle Group authority, where you will face a court martial. You are a disgrace to your species, Terran.
You were successful in rescuing the Steadfast. You also destroyed the Shivan freighters and protected the Seraim. You have earned much honor and respect this day. I admit to many doubts about Terrans serving on Vasudan ships. I acknowledge my mistake and welcome your addition to our vessel's strength.

We've finished rearming the Steadfast and made what repairs we could.
Beginning repairs on the Steadfast. Keep the Shivans off us.

Glad to see you. We are severely damaged and require a tow out of here.
Our engines require major repair work. We need a tow out of here.
We note an unknown signal. Adjusting course to investigate.
We have found a Shivan gas extractor guarded my Shivan fighters.
We detect Shivan bombers on attack vector.
We have detected the Steadfast.
We are summoning a Terran repair vessel. Alpha and Beta, protect the Steadfast and repair vessel.
We will summon a transport.

GVD Millipen (unknown)
GVA Suraim (Setekh)
GTT Greer (almost certainly a transport, but I don't know what kind)

some Shivan freighters (unnamed, classes or numbers unknown)
