As Major John "Dutch" Cane, you will be leading an elite platoon of mercenary commandos. Officially, these guys don't even exist. Mercenaries outfitted with some of the most deadly experimental weaponry the military wouldn't even dream of issuing to their troops. You will lead your team into a space station that has been overrun by mutated alien parasites or "bugs". Your orders are to take out the enemy before they have a chance to zero in on the station's control center and threaten colonized space. You must secure the station by eliminating the alien threat, or life as you know it will cease to exist.
