Dateline: January 8, 1992. The Persian Gulf. On the largest oil rig ever built, on top of the largest oil field yet discovered, a fanatical terrorist death squad holds the fate of western civilization in a clenched fist. Unless their demands are met by midnight, the terrorists will detonate a captured U.S. nuclear warhead. The Persian Gulf will beocme an enormous radioactive fireball and the United Nations officials held hostage will die. The world community, unwilling to negotiate with terrorists, has been left with only one option - a suicide mission against impossible odds. You are the only volunteer.
