The demo takes place on a naval supply ship, the USS Mt. St. Helens, stationed in the Indian Ocean near Abd al Kuri. The ship has been taken over by pirates led by a Syrian terrorist named Ghassan al Bitar, who just happens to have unfinished business with Gabe. After a quick deployment into the field, Gabe learns that the man who sent him on the mission, long-time Agency pain in the ass Robert Cordell, didn't give him all of the intel he needed. The terrorists have taken over the ship's missile system and are preparing to use them.
