Cruising at a ‘black sky’ altitude of 130,000 feet, in the cockpit of the newly engineered XSO suborbital jet, U.S. Lieutenant Commander Dallas Grant reports the explosion of a Poseidon missile just minutes after its successful deep sea launch.

An atmosphere of anxiety and paranoia sets in awaiting authorisation from the President as cameras rouse suspicious, films are unaccounted for and an official record of unleaked classified data is called for.

Urgent Orders are sent to Grant and his colleague Dmitri to combine their 21st century black sky warrior strike squads in an apparently unofficial war that has already been initiated.
