Gen. Brenner: The building is safe, Mr. Shambi?
Barney Collier: Yes, it is, General. The defective beam is in the basement. I will send a company of engineers to repair it. Right now, I must make a personal report to the Premier.
Paris: I will accompany you, Mr. Shambi.
Person on Tape: [voice on tape] Good morning, Mr. Phelps. Twelve years ago, this man, Anton Malek, was planted in the Federated People's Republic to infiltrate their atomic research program. Now suffering from an incurable disease, Malek is acting independently against his country's orders. At 4:00, the day after tomorrow, Malek is going to turn a nuclear reactor into an atomic bomb which will wipe out the capital and bring on an atomic war. Any attempt to expose Malek will only result in his setting off the blast ahead of schedule. Your mission, Jim, should you decide to accept it, is to stop Malek. As always, should you or any of your IM Force be caught or killed, the Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions. This tape will self-destruct in five seconds. Good luck, Jim.
