The Orpheus Directive: Season 1, Episode 3. Factory Number 9
With the whole North Korean army converging on the factory, Ethan and his team must find and destroy the X-37B Orbiter. If they fail it will be used to deliver Russian SS-18 ICBM nukes to New York and Washington in under an hour.

There will be no time for defence.

Factory Number Nine is huge, ancient and strewn with rusting junk. They will need a month to search it properly. They have twenty minutes, and then only if Loco and Smokey can slow the enemy at the gates. One sniper and a spotter against 200 heavily armed troops. It can end only one way.

It is Ethan’s job to keep him men alive, a job he has done for more years than he cares to remember, in some of the most dangerous places on earth.

This time the odds are just too high, and to cost of failure unimaginable.

But he will try. He is a US Marine Master Sergeant, and dying to save his country comes with the job.

Factory #9

At first Ethan thought they’d gotten away with it. First time ever. But of course they hadn’t. When he saw the old farmer and his wife staring at them in open-mouthed shock, he wasn’t at all surprised, it was just the way of things, always. He waved and gave them a smile while he rolled up his chute. That wasn’t going to work.

They waved back. So wonders weren’t all used up in this world. Then they turned and walked away as quickly as their old bones would allow, to report what they’d seen to the authorities. He didn’t blame them, in this country not reporting it would see them shot, probably with an anti-tank gun, which seemed to be de rigueur from what he’d seen on the six-o’clock news.

We’re on the clock, he said over his shoulder.

Maybe they live a long way off and it’ll take them a week to get there, Loco said.

Our luck, they live behind that tree, Winter said, looking up from packing away his gear. We could shoot them, he said. No, I guess not, Top’ll just get upset and that would make me sad.

Your concern for my emotional state has got me all choked up, Ethan said. Now if it’s not too much trouble, we should skedaddle.

How far’s this factory? Loco said, and slung his M40 over his shoulder.

Ethan pointed east. Ten klicks. Yonyang or some such. Didn’t you read the briefing pack? He shook his head. No, of course you didn’t.

Pyongyang, Top, Winter said.

You have to have surgery to say that, Loco said, then held up his helmet and oxygen bottle. You want I should bury these, Top?

Ethan glanced back. Sure, if you want. He tossed his into the grass.

It’s SOP, Loco said, then shrugged and threw his gear on top of Ethan’s. Do somebody some good.

You think there’s a big market for HALO helmets and oxygen bottles over here? Smokey said.

There’s nothing else here, so why not?

Yeah, I guess so. Smokey added his gear to the growing pile.

Gunny walked past the group and followed Ethan, then stopped and turned slowly. If you don’t get your asses moving, he said quietly, you’ll be on a week’s PT special when we get back. Those not killed, that is.

He loves us, you know that? Loco said, patting Smokey on his shoulder to get his attention.

Yeah, but he loved his labrador, and look what he did to him. He strode after Gunny.

What? Loco said, chasing after
