The evil multi-national corporate conglomerate empire MegaSoft® reached out and nuked someone (just about everyone, as it turns out) in 2023 with a nuclear-capable e-mail virus, designed to stop anti-trust suits. It worked, really, really well. Evil wins.

In 2076, however, Term Unit X, the militant arm of the New League of Nations Under Coherent Systems (New/Lonucs) is using a team of specially trained mutant-hybrids and extraordinary hackers to break into MegaSoft® of North America (MSNA)'s stronghold in Washington M.S., and free the world from the hands of MegaSoft®, dangerous code and irritating animated paperclips.

Led by Term Unit X leader TUX (a cybernetic penguin-hybrid), alongside Wilder (an over-zealous Gnu-mutant), Ch (a mutant with a penchant for dressing like the Devil), and Cmdr Tako, one of the United Geek Front of America's ambassadors from the DashSlot stronghold, they descended into the not-so-abandoned Orange Computing Hive in Cupertino, off the Berkeley Front, fought off the brutal Orange Computing iSects, made their way to the ancient World-Wide-Warp Googol Portal, and jumped into warpspace.

We re-join the team in World Wide Warpspace, en route to their rendevous point at the Columbia, towards their ultimate destination of Washington, MS.
