(mbc.net) Stanley Goodspeed, who lives in Washington D.C., is a biochemist who works for the FBI.

Soon after his fiancée Carla Pestalozzi announces that she is pregnant, Stanley gets a call from FBI director James Womack.

Womack tells Stanley that San Francisco's Alcatraz Island has been taken hostage, along with 81 tourists, by marine General Francis Xavier Hummel.

The death of his wife Barbara Hummel drove Hummel over the edge, and now he's holding hostages in order to get his point across.

Stanley is needed because Hummel has announced that he will launch gas warheads onto San Francisco unless his demands are met.
