* MEMO's


Since this game has tons of memo's for the player to read through I 
thought that it would be good if there was a Memo FAQ for this game,
and since there isnt one existing on at this moment I
thought about making one. Here we go.


Here are all the memo's that you find in the game. Enjoy.

                    NCO FILE 1

Currency guide,
With the birth of the Euro in 1999, EU countries took a major
step forward in uniting. However optimism about the UE was
weakened by:
* Major powers not joining the EU.
* Differences between member economies.

As more and more eastern European nations join  the  union, 
talks about foreign affairs between the east and west will be
necessary. It has been argued however, that such integration
could destroy the individual cultures of the countries involved.

                    NCO FILE 2

After the end of the cold war, many thought that the world
would live in peace and harmony. However, the many differences
between religions, governments and cultures caused friction in
the new world...

                    POWER REACTOR NOTES

The Blue harvest is powered by an experimental tritium
hydrogen fueled engine.

* Fuel for this engine can be extracted from sea water and
the energy combusted emits no pollution. This engine was
created with top secret joint research data from teams in
the US, Japan and Russia.

Everyone involved is therefore asked to maintain the utmost
secrecy and work hard to collect operational data. This
hydrogen engine can be the answer to the world's energy
problems. For the future of the human race.
