An otherworldly individual hacks into the Opportunity rover on Mars, and sends an encrypted message to Earth, well hidden inside a song.
Considering that the rover is actually a dead stick, NASA assigns the transmission's analysis and deciphering to one of its best private contractors, Atkinson Corp, a state of the art company with unlimited resources and power, a company of unrivaled expertise in AI development and computer coding, but also highly questionable tactics and an evil agenda surrounded by cyborg organisms.
While the processing of the message creates more questions than answers, the prospect of the message itself being alien, grows strong into Atkinson who wants to be the first communicating with the strangers, disregarding the Government's interests.
However, little does he know about the single individual who devised and executed such a plan, just to hack into that specific company for his own benefit, that includes access to the AI research department, which was out of his reach up until the moment Atkinson decided to speed the deciphering up.
When the time comes, Atkinson Corp itself is hacked and its most precious artifact, an actual young female AI, is the real target.
With a facility infested by an army of guards and security beyond imagination, one man has to go in, two people have to come out, and three to make it home safe.
This belongs to the Scifi section, not here. Don't know if that was my mistake, please move it there! Ty!
