Bug-like beings chase Atari Force and Rident (Martin carries Kargg) back to Scanner One. One bug gets its pincer stuck in the hatch, but Dart finally manages to cut it off to secure the hatch. The bugs put some sort of paste on the thrust plates and back off, preventing Atari Force from lifting off. Meanwhile, Morphea probes Blackjak and discovers a "minuscule tumor" with "an alien personality lying dormant within." In sick bay, Taz escapes and hides in a storage locker. Back with the rest, they discover the aliens' acid doesn't work on Babe, so they send him out to clean the plates. Once he's out, the aliens swarm on him and he panics.


The original cover art for this issue is available in the Gallery.
