Storyline

In the year 2078, the planet Sirius 6B, once a thriving mining hub, has been reduced to a toxic wasteland by a war between the mining company, known as the New Economic Bloc, and The Alliance, a group of former mining and science personnel. Screamers track targets by their heartbeats, so Alliance soldiers wear tabs which broadcast a signal canceling out the wearer’s heartbeat and rendering them invisible to the machines.
