Story: Two thousand years from now – The Earth is a big frozen ball covered with ice. The new Ice Age came early this time and mankind vanished from the face of the Earth. The mankind abandoned the Earth and headed toward new planets. The aliens however – had adapted to this new environment quickly. They saw Ice Age as an opportunity to spread their spore across the galaxy. They use the Earth base as a head-quarters for long-distance attacks.

There have been rumors that the aliens have now located mankind’s new home planet. The only way to stop them from invading our new home is to use a pre-emptive strike against our old home planet which has now become their stronghold. The Earth base is too strong – the only way to remove this threat is to infiltrate into our old planet by using the abandoned EDF base near the Canadian border (in the state of Idaho).

The old EDF base is out of electricity due to the fact that no one has been there for two thousand years (except the aliens but they haven’t had any use for it). Your mission is to first turn on the electricity and then send a satellite transmission to our home planet. After that – escape. The aliens will become even more aware of your presence once the message has been sent since they monitor all satellite up link systems.

– This map contains a fatal flaw involving a broken elevator used to obtain a red key card. If you miss the elevator the first time around, map progression is impossible without cheating. Unfortunately, the author of this map does not believe in going back to correct the bug.
