Synopsis: On August 7, 1941 British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and President Franklin D. Roosevelt conducted a secret meeting aboard the USS Augusta off the coast of Newfoundland. It was there that Churchill endeavored to convince Roosevelt to enter the war in support of England. They did reach consensus on a statement which was later released and became known as the Atlantic Charter—the impetus behind the later created United Nations. The United States entered the World War II a few months later after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor.
It's now seventy-five years later. President Baxter, the leader of the free world, has requested to meet with Prime Minister Geoff Clavington and Russian President Alexander Medvedev at Placenta Bay under cover of a reenactment of the famous Atlantic Charter meeting. He traveled there aboard the USS Iowa with a strike force that included several other U.S. warships. It was August 7, 2016. The reenactment cover was necessary to discuss security concerns the magnitude of which the free world had never before faced—threats from high on—from outer space. The United States had intelligence indicating an impeding attack on Earth by an alien force with intentions to conquer Earth and enslave all mankind. The leaders soon learned of another alien force with its military sights focused on Earth. Competing forces from outer space were about to make their move and Earth's disparate military commands were unprepared. From that meeting another important statement emerged—a joint agreement by President Baxter, Prime Minister Clavington, and President Medvedev regarding the establishment of Earth's Defense Operation Command. Weeks later Earth was under attack and sorely prepared for the devastation that followed.
