Synopsis for "Unmanned (Part I of V)"

In Brooklyn, Yorick Brown has a long-distance telephone conversation with his girlfriend Beth Deville. Beth is currently exploring the Australian outback. Yorick is an unemployed escape artist who owns a Capuchin monkey named Ampersand. Yorick asks Beth to marry him when suddenly their telephone call is cut short.

In Washington, D.C., Yorick's mother, Jennifer Brown, is a United States House representative. On the steps of the Capital Building, she gets into an argument with a U.S. Senator concerning a pending abortion rights bill.

In Nablus in the West Bank, a team of embedded reporters tries to conduct an interview with a female soldier named Colonel Tse'Elon. Tse'Elon is in the midst of a firefight with a group of violent nationals, but agrees to conduct the interview anyway.

In Jordan, a special ops agent known only as 355 enters the home of Doctor Frozan Hamad. She tells Hamad that she is in great danger and that she is here to protect her. Hamad responds, citing that she has been in danger all her life and does not need or want anyone's protection. Agent 355 tells her that there are those who seek to kill her to obtain the Amulet of Helene, which hangs below Hamad's neck. Seconds later, a group of masked men enter through the window and shoot Frozan Hamad. Agent 355 kills them, but she is too late. Hamad is dead. She grabs the amulet and regroups with her extraction team.

In Boston, Doctor Allison Mann admits herself to the maternity ward of a hospital. She is going into labor and is about to give birth to her own clone. Elsewhere in the city, Yorick's sister Hero Brown works as an EMT. She is romantically involved with a firefighter named Joe and preparing to have sex in the back of an ambulance. A call comes in, and Joe is forced to cut the dalliance short.

Suddenly, all across the world, all of the male members of the species, including animals, begin having violent seizures. They cough up heavy amounts of blood then fall over dead. The only members of the male gender who appear to survive the pandemic are Yorick and Ampersand the monkey.
