Non lethal devices

Self destruct Zero Tower to guarantee data security
Code Omega will start in T – 12 hours>>
Twelve hours are not a big deal of time but can be an eternity when you are struggling for your life. None of the Zeros knew what would come towards them when they got up. This morning should prove to be a:
