Synopsis for "Dancers On A Plane"
The U.S.'s largest military base in the world; Fort Anchorage in Alaska, has been captured by the Chimera. Efforts to drive back the invaders fail, the government keeps the news a complete secret, and acts to formally activate the Sentinel Program; having been previously training-based, for the first time. The first team of trained Sentinel soldiers immunized, to a certain degree (several visual symptoms of the virus are seen on the soldiers) to the Chimera virus, is activated as "Sentinel Team Alpha" (which happens to include Joseph Capelli and Benjamin Warner; who are feature as "Sentinel Team Echo" members in Resistance 2 under Lt. Nathan Hale's command). The team is briefed on its first mission (dubbed the "maiden voyage of the Sentinel Program"); they will be taken to Alaska for insertion, surgically enter the base, rescue key surviving personnel and certain materials, and then rendezvous with an air-evac; and they are not to directly engage the enemy. The officer briefing them is asked by Capelli as to why a larger force, or other divisions capable of keeping secrets, isn't used instead of the Sentinels; a clandestine unit. The officer answers there is something in the base so top secret only the Sentinels can be sent; the Chimera have captured America's first atomic bomb.

Synopsis for the 2nd Story
James Grayson (the protagonist of Resistance: Retribution) details his early history with his beloved brother; Johnny. In his childhood; the world was a peaceful and blissful place, but this changed when the Chimera came. James' father was re-commissioned as an officer to fight in the war, and Johnny also joined the war as a pilot, with James not far behind. James' father was killed in combat, the devastation of which made James realize his father's example wasn't his own, and so James quits the R.A.F. to live his own life, and gradually a rift forms between the two brothers when Johnny tries and fails to effectively replace their father. Life was bad for James; unemployed at a time England was suffering with decreasing morale (with "monsters" besieging Europe and the Americans refusing to help) and desperate supply shortages. One evening, Johnny and James get into an argument, where Johnny insists James no longer go into the cities; having heard from his friends the city will soon be locked down by the military, and so at least one of them must remain to take care of their mother. James angrily retorts that Johnny doesn't really care about his safety or their mother, but instead cares more about appearing like a hero. Johnny, however, counters that James doesn't really understand what's going on in Europe; they are losing control (as every man is needed; to the point their forces in India were called back to shore up England's defenses; and India was totally overrun as a result). Feeling Johnny is trying to control him; James runs away from home. A few days later, Johnny is called up to fight the war in Europe and, with his father dead and his mother being taken care of by the R.A.F. for the rest of her life, James found a new family in that of a street gang.
