Colonel Siberia

Starke talks to Vattic

Reliance is the eighth mission in Second Sight. It takes place in the Huvat Plateau on 21st February, 21:05 hrs.


Colonel Starke and John Vattic are on night watch at the WinterICE camp. They have left the area to investigate strange lights which John has seen in a nearby forest gorge.




Colonel Joshua Starke: "Vattic? You okay?"

Dr John Vattic: "Yeah... No. I can't stop shaking."

Starke: "Pull yourself together man. You gave a good account of yourself back there. You saved her life. She's important you know."

John: "And what makes you say that?"

Starke: "Her psychic advice saved southern California."

John: "Excuse me?"

Starke: "She was right about a terrorist cell and a briefcase nuke. So I'm willing to bet she's right about Grienko and about you. I can rely on her. Can I rely on you?"

John: "Yeah, yeah - I'm okay now."

Starke: "Good."

John: "Hey, did you see that?"

Starke: "I'll check it out."


Starke: "Good work! She was right about you!"

John: "Thanks."

Starke: "This can't be right."

John: "What?"

Starke: "This equipment - it's not Russian. It's U.S. special forces."

John: "You mean?"

Starke: "Yeah - our side!"


  • In Wilde's future, this is where Colonel Joshua Starke died.
  • Failing this mission will show the "Starke Dead" Enigma cutscene.
  • If Vattic attacks the Colonel, he will fire upon John. If John dies, or he kills Starke, the "Psycho" Enigma cutscene will be shown.
