In December 1980, an alien craft was encountered by US airmen in Rendlesham Forest, Suffolk. In October 2005, a fleet of UFOs were sighted as they flew over the M25 around London. In March 2006, the Space Shuttle Atlantis encountered an unidentified craft whilst on a routine mission to the International Space Station. They watched as something was released into the atmosphere, before the craft raced back into space. All these stories, plus many more, have been covered up by our governments, both here and in the United States. What was delivered to Earth that night could lead to the end of life as we know it. We now face a threat that is spreading across the world and has taken hold at the highest levels of the UK's government. The Alpha Protocols is the story as to how the United Kingdom responds to an invasion by an alien species. Based in Suffolk, the Alpha Team provide the front line response leading the defence of our country. Working with the Department of Planetary Defence in the United States, the Alpha Team, lead by Dave Hunt and Lucy Tyler, work towards saving the human race. This is a fight that must remain hidden from the public. A fight that cannot be lost. A fight for our own survival.
