(intense music) - [Man] They're calling in a chemo strike.
(alarm blaring) - It's about time.
That'll stop it!
- [Man] But sir, a chemo attack will destroy the whole town!
- The tumor's grown too big, we can't stop it.
Chemo is our only chance of survival.
- Wait a second, they're holding the chemo.
Too much collateral damage.
They're sending in a precision strike team to do recon.
There's no time, chemo it now.
- Sir, we have better technology now.
Okay, we can get in behind enemy lines, decode the genes, and learn how it is attacking.
- I've lost a lot of cells, a lot of good cells fighting this cancer.
I can't lose another.
- Well chemo might kill it, but it will definitely kill more cells, making it hard to fight again if the cancer comes back or if other enemies invade.
- I won't lose another one, not one more cell!
Brief me on this strike team, how does it work?
- [Man] One of our doctors sneaks into the tumor, nabs some DNA and learns all the cancer's secrets.
- [Patient] Hmm.
- Well different cancers have different vulnerabilities, so once the doctor hones in on the enemy's weak spot, a strike team is sent in quietly, cleanly, and with no collateral damage.
- [Patient] A precision strike.
- A precision strike.
And it's not just about finding the enemy's weaknesses.
Doctors can also look at a patient's genes to gather intelligence about the strength of the troops.
- [Patient] Well, then brief me.
- [Man] Okay, situation cancer advancing.
Now instead of just sending out troops in a pill and hoping that it works, the doctor can do some recon to the patient's genes.
- [Patient] Yeah.
- [Man] And see exactly what kind of troops will work best with the patient's genes to make sure they are using the best tactics.
- Well why didn't we use this in the Great Respiratory War?
- We just weren't there yet.
- Well, let's get ready for the precision strike.
Coms, put in a call to the president.
