***Incoming Transmission***AFS High Command From: General British Re: Operation Immortality
A CALL TO ARMS FOR ALL AFS TROOPS, PAST AND PRESENT!
General British, civilian name Richard Garriott, will board a Russian Soyuz spacecraft bound for the International Space Station on October 12, 2008. The event is being publicised as routine, but the truth has been withheld for fear of causing widespread panic across the globe.
AFS has discovered incontrovertible proof that a hostile alien force known as The Bane is planning to launch a full scale invasion of the planet Earth! In order to prevent the extinction of all humanity we have devised a project, code-named OPERATION IMMORTALITY, a digital showcase of mankind’s greatest achievements and a preservation blueprint of humanity itself. This showcase will be archived aboard the ISS to serve as a “remote backup” of humankind, should our greatest fears come to pass.
Since AFS records show that you are a past or present AFS enlistee, you are hereby invited to participate in this once-in-a-lifetime event! This is mankinds only chance, a chance to start over, a clean slate!
