          The following is a description of the story for Zero-G Marines given by Strategy First during an interview with Action Vault.

          "The year is 2353, Earth has colonized the solar system. Powerful corporations reap great profits from deep space industry and wield more power than the various world governments. The largest of these is TerraCorp, a very powerful organization with a heavily vested interest in the Vista Orbital Space Stations (VOSS), orbiting the largest moons of Jupiter. VOSS permits access to a wealth of resources and impressive research and manufacturing capabilities in a zero-g environment. On September 18th, all contact from Station Europa ceased. Within six months, one station after another fell silent. A last garbled transmission from Station Ganymede revealed a military assault from Europa, before it was spiked.

          It becomes evident that a military coup has taken place and using new bio-genetic research on Station Europa, has created a deadly force of zealots. A top-secret military bio-chemical research project on Space Station Europa has gone horribly wrong. A small group, known as the Council of 9, lead by a shadowy figure calling himself Nihilo, has seized the facility and used the newly created microbial virus to infect and control the inhabitants. It physically creates a new neuro-transmitter that induces blind obedience and heightened strength and senses. These zealots have quickly overrun several space stations, by infecting everyone they can. They now threaten Earth itself.

           TerraCorp has decided to take the drastic step of sending the Zero-G Marines, an elite marine force equipped with the most powerful individual weapon system ever created. Their mission is to find out what happened on the Vista Stations, and to use deadly force to regain control of the situation. The ultimate, deadly tactical response force, the Zero-G Marines unit was created with the mandate to keep the peace in the frontiers of the solar system. Their main weapon is the Exo-shell, a deep space combat suit that packs more firepower than any single man weapon in the history of warfare. The marines will be months away from friendly forces in the cold vacuum of space against an unknown enemy. If they fail, the threat on Europa might envelope the rest of the solar system including Earth itself."
