Escalation is "Moulting Season":

"Among the rubble from this special station, you find a tracking device, supposedly homed in on transponders placed on units this facility has produced through the years. What the reason was for the mother hive to monitor its offspring one can only guess, but in any case it seems like this little instrument is about to spell certain doom for one of its hopefuls; one of the units seem to be still in range of this device and you get the location flashing on one of your panels."
