Before the game can play, enter the Starforce disk registration number that is found in the inside front cover of the manual.

October 10, 2044
Alaska: Look at the ice hole. Follow the string of the fishing pole to the snow path at the foreground. Look at the window on the side of the house and see the fishing pole ends here. Enter the Polar Station - Ice Lake Inn. Talk to the Eskimo behind the counter. Learn about the white man's temple up north - Domain of Darkness. There's a bell that tells when a fish is attracted to the bait. The Eskimo made a comment about the lumber tangling the fishing lines. Walk around the shop. See the string from the window is attached to a golden bell.
Get the Eskimo out of the Inn to get the jet ski keys - Go outside and see the jet sleigh left of the stairs.
Go behind the inn. Go forward to the plank pile behind the inn and second pine tree.
Click on plank pile and see you throw one to the water. The plank tangles the fishing line and alerts the Eskimo. The Man untangles his fishing line.
Go back inside the inn. Click on the metal cabinet- keybox on the shelf on the wall behind the counter.
Take a key from the keybox.
Exit the inn. Click key on jet sleigh. Peter drives to the Domain of Darkness.
Enter the building: Look close at the snowmobile. Flip the latch of the cover and take gas canister and rag. Go left around the Pentanet building to Entrance A. Place the canister on the snow in front of the entrance. Use rug on gas canister. Use lighter on rug-gas canister. Go to entrance and look close at the camera. The door opens.
Go forward to the bulkhead. See the dead body of Johnson at the side of the corridor. Take the disk from his hands. Right click his name tag and take the note from his pocket. The note seems to be blank.
Bulkhead: Go forward to the bulkhead. It is the main monitor room. Go down to the central area. Click on the computer monitor. Meet the cause of all your and the world's woes. Talk to the Computer - AI about trial. Learn all about the how, the why and the when of all these events. Listen to hear the events seen from 2 different point of views.
Click on left bottom to get out of the close view with the AI. Look close at the control panel right of the stairs. The lower right shows no signal input because of the destroyed Bermuda Triangle relay station.
Exit the bulkhead.
If I want to shut it down, I need SILENCE.
Go back to the dead Johnson. See that he is lying under the Evacuation Area door.
Parabolic dishes: Go to the door across the hall and see a world map. Take the blank note taken from Johnson's pocket. In inventory, use the lighter on the note. The top part of the note has the letters: NA EU AF AU SA. They are abbreviations of continents. Press the continents in sequence: North America, Europe-Asia, Africa, Australia and South America.
Enter and see a parabolic dish. This is one of the 5 shown on the drawing at last page of Graham's diary.
To silence the transmission, the receivers-dishes should not get any signal input.
Based on Graham's diary, only 3 stations are needed to be turn off to sabotage the whole system. Based on the Bermuda Relay Station, #2 is the one that is receiving signal input from North America. Since you have destroyed that relay station, also verified by the 'no signal input' on the stand by the stairs in the bulkhead - no adjustment is needed.
The other 4 parabolic dishes will not receive any transmission if they are all adjusted to receive input from North America via the destroyed Bermuda Triangle relay station.
So, the object of the puzzle is to adjust all the dishes to point at North America.
1. To know which dish receives transmission from which continent: Familiarize yourself by going down the stairs and make a whole rotation back to Dish 1. Note that each dish room has a stand that is used to rotate the dish. In between, the stairs is a map that shows the continent that a dish is receiving data from. Since we know that #2 dish is for North America, then we know which map shows where that dish is pointing to.
To verify that #2 dish is for NA, take note of the setting - 108 on the #2 stand. Move the dish using the arrows to either right or left extreme. Go to the North America map and see that the highlighted area has moved. Go back to the stand and enter 108 again on the stand. Now, we know #2 is for reception of North America transmissions.
Based on the layout, a dish points to a continent shown by the map across it.
|Parabolic dish||Points to:||
2. Turn the dishes to point to North America: Go to the stand on each dish room and click on the arrows to turn the dish. Turn the dish to extreme right or left - 'as far as it goes'. Look at the map that shows its target and see if it points to North America or to a continent that is adjusted to point to N. America in its relay. 3 dishes are needed to be silenced.
|Dish||Setting change (as far as it goes)||Target Continent|
|1||extreme left||006||North America & South America|
|3||extreme right||210||North America & Africa|
|5||extreme left||294||Australia & South America|
|2||no adjustment||108||North America|
|4||extreme left||282||Europe & Africa|
|1||extreme left||000||North America|
|3||extreme right||216||North America|
Dish 1, 2 and 3 are now pointed at North America.
Bulkhead: Watch the monitors in the bulkhead go down and then silence. The stand shows the adjustments for dish 1 and 2 as no signal input. A fly did a world shattering act - it landed on the #3 pad of the control stand thereby checked the system. The system crash alert blared. Evacuation is a necessity.
Evacuation area: Go out to the corridor, run to the evacuation door by Johnson and run down the steps. Go over the bridge to the left and down the long bridge to the evacuation pods.
Only one evacuation pod is live - #3. Click on #3 stand. See missiles are released.
To change the target of the missiles: Inside the evacuation pod, look close at Rocket Control panel on the right. Insert the CD taken from Johnson's hand on the slot.
To get the evacuation pod out of here: Pull out of close up view, pull the red lever and press the red button.
If you are late in reprogramming the target of the missiles - watch the destruction of New York. You are given another chance.
If you are in time to reprogram the missiles - watch the missiles change direction and back to Alaska, to the main transmission center - Domain of Darkness. The Pentanet Building, thus the AI is destroyed.
Debbie and Peter depart to go to the funeral.
Hi, my name is Susan. I'd like to get to know you.
