In the year 2000, an international Consortium of secret agencies plotted to assassinate The Bleating Sheep (TBS) while he was resting on his
home island in the Pacific. After weeks of planning, a newly created stealth bomber was deployed to make the kill and return. On August 3, 2000 at
0400 hours, the bomber 'TIE' took off from a secret military base on the northern tip of Australia as planned. At 0922 hours on the same day,
the bomber returned reporting mission accomplished, and the Consortium breathed a collective sigh of relief.
[see: mission footage 15Mb, DivX].
During the past four years, there were many unconfirmed sightings and even some grainy photos of TBS (see picture, right), but all were disregarded as hoaxes.
It has now been confirmed however,
much to the Consortium's embarrassment and surprise, that in fact TBS miraculously survived the attempt on his life, and during his lengthy recovery
began planning revenge.
On February 28 at 2300 hours, TBS activated thousands of sleeper cell units that had infiltrated farms around the world
posing as ordinary sheep. In five short hours, this massive army of part-cloned, part-cyborg gun toting sheep, had toppled governments in Europe, Australia
and the Americas, with Africa, Asia and Russia following shortly after.
You are the commander of the only surviving organised resistance unit on earth, you are mankind's last hope.
Fight gallantly and and defeat the enemy before there is nothing left to fight for.
