Plot Synopsis for "untitled"
In 1983, Dutch is in on a mission in Nicaragua to take out a Sandinista base. In the process, he is also testing out a cybernetic suit being monitored by the mission controllers. After he kills a sniper against orders, the controllers deem him a loose cannon and activate an override. Dutch finds the base deserted except for a large, stone creature that attacks him. Impervious to his weapons, it beats the crap out of him and tosses him over a cliff. The controllers use the override to take remote control of his suit as the creature attacks again. It tears Dutch’s arm off, but the suit automatically cauterizes the wound. Dutch goes into shock, and the controllers end the mission, sending in a helicopter to pick him up. They also shut down the creature, called Aztech—the entire mission was a setup to test its performance as well as that of Dutch’s suit. The controllers puzzle over why the military was willing to sacrifice Dutch for this test. In an internal memo, the Covenant of the Sword explains it has infiltrated the U.S. government and used this incident to remove Dutch as a potential threat to their plans.
