MACCDC 2019 Scenario Summary

Space Force

In April 2018, eight teams from Space Force X were launched into intergalactic space. Their mission: maintain and defend the eight robotic exploration systems dispatched by the Space Unification Project, Bureau of Research and Heliosphere (SUP-BRAH) to the eight moons of the dwarf planets in our solar system. The Space Force X teams are expected to maintain the operations efficiencies of numerous data systems used to communicate and operate the Optimus Prime Rovers (OPRs) as well as many other operational systems used to support the project.

As part of their duties, the Space Force X teams are expected to defend all systems against aggressors. We suspect that rouge Hackistanian antagonists have launched Bosconian ships that will transport their personnel to within attack range of the OPR missions located on the moons. Also suspected to be on-board are shape-shifting cuttlefish that will be difficult to defend against because of their ability to grow and shrink on command.

We expect the Space Force X teams to arrive at their bases within the next couple of weeks. In the event there are any catastrophic losses during the mission, teams from Space Force Y have completed training and will be deployed if needed.
