Mission Briefing Edit
Dan Briggs goes into a phone booth and inserts three quarters into the coin slot and types in the code 426. In the coin slot is the envalope with the mission targets and the tape with the mission briefing.
Good evening, Mr. Briggs. This is Boradur, for 200 years the most infamous penal colony on Earth. Until five years ago, when it was closed down, Boradur was run by this man Gerard Sefra, who still remains there with a small group of former guards. Sefra has come into possession of a sample of cesium-138 and its formula, which he memorized and destroyed. He has offered these for sell to the highest bidder. Dan, cesium-138 is the key to a low-cost nuclear arsenal. Your mission, should you decide to accept it, would be to make sure no one gets the cesium or learns the formula. As always, should you or any member of your IM Force be caught or killed, the Secretary with disavow any knowlage of your actions. This message will self destruct in five seconds. Good luck, Dan.
Dan closes the coin slot and the tape self destructs.
