ONE SPY. ONE HOUR. ONE CHANCE.
It’s 1957 aboard USS Hornet. We’re in the height of the Cold War between America and the USSR. Hornet’s about to dock at NAS Alameda and we’re looking forward to familiar soil but news just got out that confidential information was stolen from us here in Combat Information Center, or CIC.
We’ve identified a briefcase among the luggage leaving the ship no one is claiming that must contain the stolen information。 We need to get inside it without being seen to replace it with false intel。 This is where you come in。
Gather your team; your best and brightest.
We’re going to need all the help you can get.
