The ‘Z Special Unit’ (ZSU) can trace its origins all the way back to Earth during the Second World War, several centuries before Terrans left their homeworld to explore the Verse. Originally ZSU was a small task force assembled by the Australian government to undertake dangerous and covert missions behind enemy lines throughout the Asia-Pacific region. During these early days ZSU consisted mainly of a small group of highly capable soldiers from all different military backgrounds.
Throughout the many conflicts of the 20th century the ZSU quickly gained a reputation as a highly talented military force with an outstanding service record. Over its many years of exemplary service the ZSU proceeded to expand its personnel base beyond the scope of a pure Covert Ops unit and began to expand increasingly into many future tech areas.
In 2015 ZSU combined forces with teams from the European Union to form ZSUEU.
Operation: LIGHTSPEED – Year 2072
A then highly classified mission to rescue the daughter of Lead RSI Engine Designer Dr.Scott Childress who was being held hostage in exchange for all current plans to the then Top Secret Quantum Drive Project. ZSU was tasked with the mission to recover the hostage from the then still Communist North Korea. Their objective was to infiltrate the base on the island of Yang-do without causing alerting any of the 500+ strong local garrison in Yang-do. Using as much stalactite and intelligence data as possible the ZSU made a plan to raid the complex that was suspected to be currently detaining the daughter of Dr.Childress at 1700-Zulu time, June 6th.
At 1738-Zulu, upon infiltrating the complex after making a successful amphibious landing and neutralising all the guarding forces at the compound, ZSU discovered that the girl had been moved to another building complex only hours prior to the commencement of operation LIGHTSPEED and was now located 1-click east of their current position. Upon leaving the initial hostage location, timed charges were set on large petroleum storage tanks within compound and set to detonate at first light. After avoiding several patrols ZSU proceeded to surgically remove all hostile forces preventing the extraction of Dr.Childress’ daughter without alerting the island’s main garrison of troops.
With the successful retrieval of a very relieved hostage, the team proceeded to the extraction point on the South-West part of the island and no further hostile engagements were encountered en-route to the EP. At first light and with ex-hostage safely in hand ZSU was almost home when explosions from the timed chargers proceed to announce to the island’s garrison the extent of their failure.
The then North Korean Media officially reported at the time that all deaths at Yang-do on 06/06/2072 were the result of gas leak with no mention of hostile forces or hostages.
