A crash course in changing the world.
Many, many years ago, our people were attacked by a force that was strong enough to overtake our entire human species...and at one point, we thought they had succeeded. This force was not from space, or our own people. Rather, it was a pandemic flu of the strain TVP-778 that made its way across the sea by avian means. Nearly 50% of the European population perished in the preceding nine months, and our nation was in a chaotic panic. Society was beginning to unravel as businesses were failing, and the government instituted a nationwide police state. The situation looked dire, until Dr. Jaime Sloane, Director of DARPA (the nation's secret military science development organization) stepped in to save the day. The country's smartest doctors were all huddled together in an air-force bunker under the plains of Colorado and had figured out the antidote to cure the disease! But alas, since the rest of the country was in a panic, they did not have access to the various chemicals needed to make the solution, which were located in various storehouses around the country, nor was there enough coordination or willing workers to control the nation's skies. That's when Dr. Sloane stepped in. She came up with the idea to use the Department of Transportation's nationwide traffic control system to coordinate the largest shipping companies to transport all the required compounds to Colorado as fast as possible. In the end, the antidote was made in time, and minimal casualties were actually reported in our country, while the rest of the world quickly received instructions how to similarly save the day.
