To get this achievement, you must allow an alien to reach your power cores, complete most of a circle around them, and kill the alien before it reaches its spawn or exit point. The core will slowly travel back to your other cores, but it might be collected by another enemy.

The trouble is finding a balance of defenses such that an enemy can penetrate your lines, but not return. When you reach chapter 4, you will encounter an enemy that spawns at your cores, and then attempts to reach the standard exit. Allow this enemy to pick up a core, then kill it before it reaches the regular enemies. Your Core should safely return. This achievement will not unlock until the end of the mission.
