“As you know, in 2018 the ‘Zombie Plague,’ as it is known by the media, broke out and nearly caused the collapse of Western society as we know it,” Romero explained.
A new image slid across the screen, one of a smart looking scientist in a lab coat holding a test tube of fluid up to the light, looking at it.
“The world’s most brilliant minds have, so far, been unable to find a cause…or a cure,” Romero continued.
Romero raised his pointer to the screen. The screen showed a map of North America. The map had dark splotchy areas on parts of some states. The splotches spread out, becoming larger and covering massive areas. Miami, the eastern half of British Colombia, The southern half of California, the Nevada desert, parts of New England, and parts of Texas were all shaded.
“While our government created quarantine zones to keep the zombies isolated, the esteemed Dr. Dieter Schmidt created,” Romero paused for dramatic effect and to pick up an object on a nearby table, “this!”
Romero lofted a shiny metal object high above his head, one of the cybernetic zombie control collars. It wasn’t latched shut so one side was open, giving it a round, crescent moon type shape.
Romero’s hands gripped the collar firmly around either side. The back side of the collar had two shiny, sharp looking spikes sticking out. The spikes were located in the center of the collar, pointing inward. It was easy to visualize them stabbing into a person’s spinal cord if they were unlucky enough to be wearing it.
“The cybernetic control collar!” Romero proclaimed.
