The aliens on the first part weren't too hard to clear except an entrenched Xarquid that was on top of a cargo container in such a location that he couldn't be grenaded. We just had to shoot him instead.

I did it. I actually did it. I cleaned out a colony and bagged a Lobsterman Navigator/Commander combo all in one marathon sitting. It took something like three hours while an EU base on average takes 25-30 minutes to beat.

Lost four dudes. One guy got killed early in the mission when a mind controlled soldier lost it, another was turned into a zombie by a Tentaculat, the third got shot by a Lobsterman, and the fourth was unconscious from a stun bomb so I just left him there. He was way the fuck on the opposite side of the base from my other guys and I already had my Lobsterman commander, so w/e. I sure wasn't going to spend another 50 turns hunting down the last Lobstermen (I figured at least two were still running around) and trying to revive him with a med pack. I blew the Synonium device up, marched everyone to the entry lift, and got the hell out of there. I also noticed that the vast majority of the aliens seemed to be on the third floor in the vicinity of the command center and I encountered maybe two total on the first and second floors.

I didn't have to actually do all this, incidentally. A Lobsterman infiltration mission was starting up in my backyard and I could have just waited for them to send a Dreadnought and gotten a much easier commander grab. That alien colony had been there for a good three months though and it was starting to bug me. Besides, you get a huge score boost for taking them out.
