You are Garm Tiger, and you are going undercover in the Pandemia system as "Johnny Red". The system has three inhabitable planets... All used as penal colonies. The crimes in the system shows sign of being organized, and strange shipments of high-tech components have been intercepted destined for the system. For what purpose, nobody knows, but the Federation suspects that some sort of weapons research or genetic research is being done in secret there.
You will go undercover and locate clues as to what is going on in the Pandemia system. Several agents are already on the planet and they will give you hints. One agent has already disappeared. Your first job is to locate Agent Alvarez and see what he knows. The rest is up to you.
At first you will appear on Tavaroon. This city is your normal city with low-risk criminals (white-collar crimes) and the police (Starpol) enforce laws when they can.
As missions continue you will move on to Quarzon, where the place is rougher, but there is a semblance of law with Starpol running around, albeit in reduced numbers, and the gangs openly challenge Starpol.
Finally, you move on to Blackloud, where no law exists. The city has HUGE skyscrapers with extremely narrow streets... and you are completely on your own. The entire city is controlled by Insight Corp, whose flyers intimidate everybody... except the Rebeliants, who fight back when they can.
And you will find out who or what is behind the crime wave gripping the cities...
