The Apocalypse Trunk
The Apocalypse Trunk resembles an old-style steamer trunk, albeit one with wheels. Trying to move it around quickly demonstrates why it has wheels: the trunk is heavy, weighing in at around 350 pounds. It can technically be opened, but in that particular way that’s reserved for items that people are not really supposed to open unless they’re are specifically-trained technical personnel. There are numerous data ports installed on the side of the Trunk, and a heavy-duty power cord attached to it, so it doesn’t need to be opened to be used anyway.
Anyone who does open it will discover that the inside is packed with the latest word in hard drives. The total storage capacity of the Apocalypse Trunk is about 75 petabytes, which is insane. That’s enough for Google’s abortive 25 million book library archive – which is convenient, because that’s what’s precisely on the drives. Which means that this is already one of the problematical items: stolen merchandise that is priceless in both the positive and negative senses. That library is theoretically worth hundreds of millions if not billions, but there’s nobody out there who it could be fenced to.
