Halifax and the Cryptic Message

In the midst of chaos once landing on LV-779, Halifax receives a cryptic message. No one can determine the origin of the cryptic message but one can guess that someone from the colony nearby is responsible. Working Joe’s appear on multiple monitors and someone has to be controlling them. A cryptic message is a surefire way to rattle some bones.

Here is the coded message:

Decoded

Andromeda and MU/TH/UR spend time with the cryptic message and attempt to decode its riddle. Meanwhile, the crew continues to come up with a plan to survive LV-779.

After some time passes, Andromeda informs the crew that the message has been decoded. Here is the decoded message:

The first video has all the answers. All you have to do is convert the binary code to text.

Here is what the binary code says in text format:

I AM IMOGEN GRAY

21B1 ID0F 56EE31

but, i am imogen gray

21B1 ID0F 56EE31

NO, IMOGEN BELONGS TO ME

21B1 ID0F 56EE31

what do the numbers and letters mean?
