The prequel to "...Aliens Invade!"

Weeks before the invasion a series of messages were sent to Earth. Complex and confusing, but highly specific instructions were embedded within a stream containing thousands of random sounds. Trying to understand the messages were Earth's brightest scientists and mathematicians. Even using the latest supercomputer technology and working around the clock they had a very limited success. The only person who had come close to breaking the code and understanding the messages was an obscure Austrian named Dr. Von Zurnbler. It's unfortunate for Earth that he was one of the first casualties in the initial attack. Now the people of Earth have only days to correctly answer the questions posed by the aliens or face an all-out invasion!
