“What’s happening Jenkins?”

“Not completely sure, sir. The lights came on in each of the outlying stations at 05.41 this morning. We sent a security unit out to investigate but lost radio contact with them an hour ago.”

“What now?”

“We’ve tried closing each station down but someone or something has overridden our main computer. Whoever’s in there, is now in control.”

“And the temperature in each station?”

“Rising rapidly, sir. At this rate, each one will blow in about ten minutes.”

“Shit!”

“What happens then, sir?”

“That’s it, son. The end. If you believe in a God, start praying.”
