Five enlists the help of Arax, Nyx and Devon when Two, Three and Four collapse. With the Android undergoing repairs, Five activates the Androids hologram in search of answers. She learns that a neural link from a brain scan taken fourteen months ago has caused them to take on their old personas, that of Portia Lin, Marcus Boone and Ryo Tetsuda. Faced with mistrust from her friends, Five creates a neural link of her own using Two’s brain scan, and uses Two’s most vulnerable memory against her to persuade Two to disconnect her neural link to the ships systems. With the neural link disconnected, they return to their old selves. Arax Nero is revealed to be the “asset”. [STILLS]
The crew of the Raza engineer their escape from Hyperion-8, and face threats from within the prison. They escape with the help of Delaney Truffault, who transfers the layout plans of Hyperion-8 via eye contact to Three. Four suggests luring a shuttle from the Ishida Empire’s cruiser in orbit, and encounters Misaki Han. Arax has his people cause a riot in the prison, and when the inmates are disabled by the sonic device, Two regains consciousness and heads to the control room. The crew reunite at the shuttle and are joined by Arax Nero, Devon and Nyx. Six has a shootout with Lt.Anders after failing to convince him to let them go, and is critically wounded. Now aboard the Raza, Devon tells the crew that he lacks the tools to save Six, and Five suggests that they place him in stasis. They learn via a news broadcast that One (Derrick Moss) has been killed. [STILLS]
Two, Three, and Four find themselves in the general population of the Hyperion-8 Maximum Security Galactic Detention Facility, unaware that Six had sold them out to the GA. One and Five meanwhile are held in the staff wing of the facility, pending release. Six tells One and Five that his real name is Kal Varrik, an undercover GA agent tasked with bringing them in. He later tasks Five with decoding an encrypted file that reveals a devastating secret from his past. One delves into his wife’s murder, and uncovers some inconsistencies that suggest Marcus Boone was not responsible. He is then visited by Jace Corso, who shoots him dead. [STILLS]
