It is far into the future, and the Earth is in a state of cold war with an alien race known only as the Thanatosians. Humanity, having solved its own problems of disease and prejudice, has found a new enemy on which to vent its hatred.

Soon all of Earth's resources are directed towards preparations for an impending war that could occur on a galatic scale. The Earth's military inductrial complex begins to work feverishly on powerful new weapons of doom, and tension mounts as armies of ships are deployed.

Somewhere, in a highly classified sector of space, a powerful ship carrying a dooms-day weapon is participating in war game maneuvers. This ship is a Cerebrus Class Destroyer named [I]SS Jeremiah Obrian[/I], and it contains a payload so secret that even the crew is ignorant as to its exact nature. The ship is carrying a new weapon considered to be the H-bomb of its era, armed and ready to use against the Thanatosians.

The war game is terrifyingly realistic, perhaps too realistic for the ship's compters. The computer takes control of the [I]Obrian[/I] and intiates an attack plan for Calliope, a small, Earth-like Thanatosian planet. The ship's cre and Captain attempt to over-ride the computer, but the computer fails to recognize the Captin's DNA access code and ignores all attempts to stop the ship.

Unbeknownst to the crew, the weapon they are carrying contains a deadly virus which quickly attacks the cells of an organism, mutating DNA and rendering the body unable to carry out vital metabolic functions. Within hours, an infected organism dies, deproved of its ability to manufacture vital metabolic proteins.

Unable to resist the virus or interface with the computers, the crew dies off one by one. The ship heads towards Calliope carrying a weapon that will start a war that could end all life in the universe.

Meanwhile, only a few high-ranking officials are aware of the ship's cargo and programmed target. Precious time elapses before word reaches military HQ, but by then the Cerebrus [I]Obrian[/I] is all but unstoppable, programmed to deliver its virulent payload swiftly and with deadly precision. A high-priority emergency beacon is broadcast in the slim hope that someone, somewhere, might intercept the ship.

Someone [I]does[/I] receive that beacon, and that someone is [B]you.[/B]

You are on board the Cerebrus Class Destroyer [I]SS Revenge[/I]. It is manned, and armed with the normal amount of weaponry for a deep-space mission. Your ship was just in a fight with some Thanatosians, but you still have to try to stop the [I]Obrian[/I], no matter how bad your resources have been depleted. You are still able to plot an intercept course and proceed to the correct cooridinates.

With a potentially deadly virus on board, your only option is to send in an armed team, and hope the defenses of the ship aren't extremely hostile. With just 6 hours before the [I]Obrian[/I] reaches Thanatosian space, you have little time to spare.

The team you are sending is able to engage and defend itself against the ship's defenses. You also have a skilled expert on computers, so that you may try to communicate with the ships computers. That just might be enough for you to sabotage the mission and prevent a holocaust.

I shall be making my choice of character after people sign-up. If I feel that someone has a better post-quality than me, they will get that character. I am also going to have another member go over post-quality with me, so that those who do not make it cannot say "Your just picking someone you like."
