Phelps approaches the chauffeur (Phillip Dean) for an old Rolls-Royce.

Phelps: A 1938 Phantom III.

Chauffeur: You know your Rolls. A lot of people say this is the best model ever built.

Phelps: V-12 engine, coachwork by Hooper & Company. Handcrafted luxury like this is hard to find these days.

Chauffeur: The body was taken down to bare metal and restored about five years ago. But the interior's all original. Have a look at the built-in jump seats.

The chauffeur opens the rear car door and Phelps goes inside. The player is inside the jump seat, which folds over. He places the player on the seat and opens it. The password is 542.

Good morning, Jim. The middle-European country of Sardavia has, over the last few years, increased the size of its armed forces out of all proportion to its economic or strategic necessities. Since this man, General Eli Szabos, gained control of the military, he has constantly clashed with the ruling Politburo, and we believe he is planning an invasion of the neighboring country Bucaraine, which is rich in oil reserves. This attack would be carried out under the cover of the war games that Sardavia is holding close to the Bucaranian border. We also believe Szabos has long-range missiles hidden on this base for a first-strike capacity. Your mission, Jim, should you decide to accept it, is to prevent the invasion of Bucaraine, and the domino effect it would have on world peace, by exposing General Szabos' plans and frustrating his evil ambitions forever. As always, if you or any of your IM Force should be caught or killed, the Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions. This disc will self-destruct in five seconds. Good luck, Jim.

Phelps closes the player. Smoke billows from the machine.
