"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."

"Last issue, Cmdr Tako was mysteriously re-directed from the rest of the team in the middle of World-Wide-Warp space, leaving TUX, Wilder and Ch alone to fulfill their infiltration of MegaSoft®. As the Unit approaches the end of the Warp pipe, however, uncertainty looms heavily over the future of the mission, and Dr. Linus Vortalds of the New League of Nations Under Coherent Systems has just received disturbing information regarding Deadware, Inc.'s recent visit to Washington, MS."
