Helicopter pilot Ed has been hired by government agency 'The Hive' to deliver a top secret satellite device, powerful enough to control half the world's satellite communications. However, Ed is attacked mid-flight by armed men in a black helicopter, who attempt to take the device by force. Meanwhile, Hive agent Nick Beckett has information that someone in the agency is working against them. He contacts electronics expert Ros Henderson for help, but before they can meet, Beckett is framed for stealing classified tapes. Fleeing from the Hive, Beckett must work together with Ros and Ed to clear his name and expose the real criminals within the agency. Written by Anonymous
