A man opens a laptop in a darkened room. A message appears: "large GOC convoy containing 4 important PSYKE ambassadors arrives in Sahara." Underneath is a garbled message running for half a page underneath. The man sends it to a laptop in Berlin.
Another man is woken by his phone ringing. Reading through the message, he runs the encrypted code through all known GOC ciphers. When his phone comes up negative, he sends it to 50 select people, and then went back to sleep.
50 students around the globe are suddenly notified: Break The Encryption.
