Near future: An American geological expedition, under a UN mandate, assesses the natural resources in a distant part of Siberia, deep in the trackless steppes of Eastern Russia. But instead of oil, they discover a deposit of a hitherto unknown mineral. American scientists working for Department of Defense find out that this mineral is in fact identical to the substance used to power an extraterrestrial artefact in their possession. This object is called the EON (Extraterrestrial Object Nexus). The experiments carried out with the new mineral, called siberite, discovered that in addition to its being the fuel for the EON, that it catalysed cold fusion. As the Russian Federation itself was in a state of turmoil, there could be no guarantee that the leaders in Moscow would not use siberite to enslave other European nations, as well as their own scattered state once again. The Americans therefore decided to act quickly. Using the EON, they began to send special units into the past to mine all of the siberite and transport it to the nearest territory under their control - to Alaska. However, the Russians learn about this plan, and they are not the only ones who don't like it.
