The Quarterback Operations Group is a top-secret operation for the American President.
Abbreviated 'QuOG' in the few places it was officially mentioned, it was created by seated President Mitchell who became frustrated when terrorists didn't have to "play by the rules" but his side did. He needed someone or ones to be his 'pointy end of the stick' who had what it took to strike back at the bad guys without the red tape and bureaucracy that slowed down and hogtied the other alphabet agencies.
The President turned to his Science Advisor, William Jennings Hiccock, aka "Wild Bill", a highly experienced and well respected gentleman who was no stranger to high-pressure occupations, whether it be in the academician world or while playing quarterback for Stanford years before.
Hiccock was given the chance to select his team on his own, pulling in people he would consider the "best of the best" in what they do. He started with Brooke Burrell, an excellent FBI agent. He added the muscle and tenacity of Master Sergeant Bridgestone and Sergeant Ross from the Delta Force, men "who cut through countries, culture, and killers like a laser through butter". Then he added a former computer hacker who once worked for organized crime, Kronos, "an offbeat 'techno-sapien' who practically mind-melds with any computer, network, or Internet backbone and manipulates it to do his bidding". He completes his team by enticing his ex-wife, Janice Hiccock, a leading behavioral psychologist, a person who could provide "insight into the human behavioral matrix".
These people would work for Hiccock who possessed a "keen analytical mind and propensity to somehow find himself in the line of fire befits an academic titan…who also happened to have won the Heisman Trophy".
"From psych-ops, where they terrorize the terrorists, to the pure brute force of going in hot, wet, and wild, QuOG uses innovative technology and on-the-spot improvisation to beat the bad guys before they know the game is on."
