Your CTL agency has been given the task of being an extra-terrestrial surveillance corporation, given recent global events of political unrest, academic beliefs of “no solace for the weak”, and reports of massive neurological destruction. One of our agency's finest staff, only going by the name "L" is now recruiting for additions to this new agency. “L” has chosen comrade “T” of the U.W.P.D. “T” has recently noticed, that a flying saucer has crashed into Sandwich St W. The flying saucer apparently has carried an alien who is part of the unknown "Bug" race who has taken the body of a farmer and is now heading to Tecumseh in search of a super energy source called "The Galaxy".

WE NEED YOU!!! To help combat this neurological destruction, we have a massive amount of weaponry that needs to be prioritized and burned into your brain so that you can pull upon these weapons to design your new space station to help save the world, using the Blackboard tools that YOU CHOOSE! Only the TOP voted tools can be used with the extremely limited time we have, so PLEASE CHOOSE WISELY! The fate of the Welcome Centre and all that is to come is in your hands.
