Cobra premieres

Prime Minister Robert Sutherland and his Chief of Staff Anna Marshall are trying to lead the country through a national emergency that no one saw coming. It’s a very confusing issue with the sun emitting a solar flare that will affect the electricity grid. We’re talking mass power outages, planes unable to land safely, violence on the street and general widespread panic as the country is plunged into darkness.

A team of senior politicians, military, scientists and experts are gathered in COBRA (Cabinet Office Briefing Room A), a dedicated committee built to keep the public safe, restore order and prevent further casualties in the aftermath of the crisis.
