Part 45: FS NOD 01: Operation RebootFS NOD 01: Operation Reboot
The Brotherhood is fractured, broken. Ever since the death of Kane and the destruction of his sacred temple, NOD has been unable to find anyone capable of righting the ship, and it now wanders aimlessly in search of purpose and direction. The Brotherhood's main goal remains the same, to usher in a new era of Tiberium, dragging humanity along with it if it must. As it stands, the various sub-factions of NOD have not yet chosen a successor, and Slavik, knowing there is precious little time to waste bickering amongst themselves before they can turn their attention back on GDI, is proposing to infiltrate the NOD site at Cairo to retrieve CABAL so that he may help unite the Brotherhood.
Cairo, Egypt as per the briefing from Slavik.
Location: Cairo, Egypt
Objective: Locate and retrieve the three pieces of CABAL's core.
Briefing: CABAL's core has been disassembled and is in the hands of GDI. With the Brotherhood in a state of disarray it is essential to get CABAL back online. Locate and retrieve the three pieces of the core without alerting the local GDI forces. Remaining silent is the only hope for a successful operation. DATA LINK CLOSED.
Author's note: A nice starting mission, with some potential to cheese it with some smart engineer/capture play. Promoted Engineers are a pro move.
