This Mission 1 from the initial terminal presented as part of the Division-66 ARG

Mission 1 opened on 2014-03-19 (Time unknown).

Overview

Clicking on the mission opened up a window that was a "briefing". Initially, the briefing is just a woman's voice reading a string of numbers with someone else talking in the background.

1 2 3 4 5
1 2 3 4 5
98 101 110 103 97 108 
1 2 3 4 5
1 2 3 4 5

There is then an extremely long pause before a final video plays - "Captain William Patrick, reporting to base". To see the video again, without having to wait through the briefing again - Captain Patrick video

After the briefing, you are then taken to the main screen for the mission.
