A research station in Alaska was raided by an unknown group, with all of the personnel killed and all of it's data stolen. The colonel deployed at the station suspects it to be an attack by the Russians, while General Flagg dismisses the idea, fearing another conflict with them. General Austin decides to send 4 members, who are currently on leave, to check out the Russian research station.
Stalker is the first one pulled out of his leave, while trying to hunt a deer. Breaker is next, receiving a message from a computer from M.I.T. Scarlett is then pulled out in the middle of a martial arts tournament. Snake-Eyes is last, being take out of his sensory deprivation unit. General Flagg flies them over to the Arctic, where he discusses the mission plan with them. He says they would have to observe the Russian station, while still trying to avoid contact with them. He also says that they should try and recover the missing records, but still focus on the main objective.
The team lands and hikes their way to the base. When they reach there, they set up a tent to camouflage themselves. They wait for about six hours, and then they notice an Eskimo come by with a dog sled. The team start to take in the fact that he has .30 Cal machine gun, and the fact he couldn't be that lost. The Eskimo goes inside the station and leaves quickly in a minute. Scarlett questions why he just left the door open, and Stalker wonders why he left the door to the station open. The team decides to go inside the base, where it reveals all the scientists froze to death. The team notices that some of the items in the base are missing. Snake-Eyes notices a bomb strapped under a table, and the team immediately leaves the station before it blows up.
The team start to wonder where this Eskimo is from, and decide to chase down the Eskimo on foot. Later on, General Flagg gets some data off of the Eskimo. His name is Kwinn and works as a Freelance Special Ops Enforcer. The team decides to continue tracking Kwinn. 5 hours later, they find Kwinn. They decide to sneak up on him. When they take off his covers, it reveals to be a pack of C4, and Kwinn comes out with the detonators. He threatens them to drop their weapons.
