  The Annihilation Syndrome's Information The Annihilation Syndrome's Structure
Introduction: Luther Sloan: We're now in orbit over the target world.
We've detected sentinel drones near the beam-down points, and a Tantalus Device prototype has been activated.
Remember, you have to eliminate Terran resistance here at all costs, or they will use their prototype to destroy us.
