Inquisitor. May the blessings of the Omnissaiah and the Emperor be upon you.
As per your instructions I have continued to work on the specimens from the +++REDACTED+++ war of 745M41. The facilities here are of good standing however I attach a list (appendix 7c) of additional equipment and supplies I will need to continue my research for the next decade. I have included relevant research files and my logs for your information on progress so far.
520 755M41: Vivisections of specimens from various species have demonstrated a huge resilience to many natural and artificial conditions.
The notes from the Explorator team on Tyran have proved to be invaluable but as you can see from the attached research I have managed to make enormous progress. The vanguard sub-species +++REDACTED+++ is possibly the greatest threat to the Imperium of Mankind we have ever encountered. +++REDACTED+++ have the ability to infiltrate any society and cause infection from within growing exponentially until a population is entirely infected. They are also hugely dangerous creatures capable of enormous feats of strength.
556 755M41: Specimen 249/AD87 managed to escape; sub-species +++REDACTED+++. It destroyed 7 battle servitors before it was finally brought down. Damage to laboratory is a significant setback, I predict repairs will take 24.8 days and further checks on all the seals of living specimens will take an additional 3.2 days.
719 755M41: Specimen 988/DD62 recovered by Astartes +++REDACTED+++ unit from space hulk in Ultima Segmatum. This specimen is slightly different to the previous specimens examined. Although it fits the same standard genotype there are minor differences in the skin pigmentation and mouth parts. I believe this minor difference is significant and will continue to explore them.
728 755M41: All specimens from hulk DD62 have same variation in pigmentation and mouth parts. Variance not explained by Behemoth diversity. Detailed autopsy of all specimens has revealed other differences.
763 755M41: Continued work on all specimens from DD62 has led me to a stunning conclusion. Hive fleet Behemoth is not unique. There are other hive fleets. Although my work is just one mote in the Imperial Analysis of the threat, and with no sense of ego, I would suggest that this discovery is the most significant of the entire century if not millennium. The Imperium must divert vast resources to the hunt for more evidence of additional hive fleets. If the attack pattern of Behemoth is repeated then the threat is extra-galactic and could potentially hit any imperial systems. As the entire segmentum was almost brought to its knees by Behemoth, we must prepare for war on a galactic scale.
105 756M41: An incineration temperature of 451 degrees is the most efficient for destroying specimens. I would recommend developing flamers and incendiary munitions that burn at this temperature.
Inquisitor, as you see reading my notes, my discoveries have been of a profound and hugely significant nature. I implore you to use your resources at the Holy Ordo Xenos to prepare for the threat of multiple and simultaneous +++REDACTED+++ invasions. Rather than Behemoth being the great threat we have defeated, I believe it only to be the prologue and a minor shadow of things to come.

Inquisitor though I have removed almost all traces of emotion from my processors I must inform you I am filled with dread and fear. I have compiled all the data I have access to from across the segmentum and beyond. I must conform that my initial conclusion was correct. The +++REDACTED+++ threat has not been defeated, and in fact only a tiny facet of the threat has even been exposed. Behemoth was just a minor skirmish compared with what we will encounter when the other hive fleets arrive in force.
I believe the reports other magi to have conducted about the threat to be flawed. My data is superior and they have included projections that could be proven to be false if I was allowed access to their logic.
I am convinced that the Imperium of mankind is not making sufficient preparations for the oncoming Maelstrom. There should be new foundings and preparation of defences and new weapons. The High Lords of Terra are remiss if they fail to act upon this information. I have tried to convince my colleagues in the Mechanicus to develop new weapon technologies designed to counter the oncoming threat, but I am met with at best scorn. What hope have I if I cannot even convince my peers?
I intend to continue to search for new weaponry technology that might help us in the inevitable battle. If my research has taught me anything it is that natural systems have come up with an answer to all problems. It is likely that organisms have already created defences we could deploy.
