|Chronological and political information|
200 years before Dead Space 3Edit
During the excavation of the Markers and alien artifacts on the planet, the Terra Nova was one of the ships used to store the specimens found in the ruins. Dietz, largely unfamiliar with the nature of the material being brought to her ship, inquired as to how to deal with them. When she received no clear answer from Admiral Marjorie Graves, she continued to have them stored in the cargo hold.
Eventually, things on the planet began to deteriorate. Unpredictable storm weather kept Dietz and her crew up constantly working sleepless nights. Her crewmen tense from the arrival of the artifacts, Dietz also had to deal with the complaints of headaches and loss concentration among some of them and speculation about the flotilla's true reason for being on the planet. Eventually, the bodies of dead soldiers were brought up onto the Terra Nova for "safe keeping", which put her pilot, Tucker Edwards, on edge.
When a Necromorph outbreak occurred across all ships and the planet, General Spencer Mahad ordered a "Scenario Five" contingency; all personnel were ordered to kill their fellow shipmates. A tearful Dietz tried to kill Edwards, knowing that someone else would do it if she didn't; however, Edwards shot and killed her first, vowing to make anyone who tried to kill him "sorry" as well.
- The recording was made in the same room she had died in, though there is no body to be found. Meaning she had been turned into a necromorph.
- She attempted to kill Edwards before any soldiers showed up, implying she cared for Edwards.
- Judging from the blood spatter opposite the recording location, she was facing Edwards who was sitting inside the tram control station when she died.
