Overview[edit | edit source]
Sally Land and Christopher Giller are taken prisoner, Hannah Melville searches Giller before locking him up but he manages to escape with Sally using a electric wire hidden in his cuff-links. As he flees, Sally returns to get the pendant and Giller is forced to abandon her.
Fiona, the leader of the Empire, contacts the base to speak with Shigaru. He tells her this is all for the future and that (in essence) he's doing it for the Empire. Fiona presses why they had taken a civilian prisoner, to which Shigaru replies that it's only normal to reunite a father and daughter.
Despite his pretences, Shigaru knows there is a problem. If the Empire launch an attack before the Omega Rex can launch, they stand no chance of defending themselves. Dr Land listens to his concerns, but brushes them off nonchalantly. He's already building the Zoid as fast as he can, so there's nothing to rush.
Sally is re-imprisoned and has flashbacks of the past, realising that while as a child her father was working on Zoids to make them "much stronger". It's only now does she realise what that actually entails. In desperation she cries for Dr Borman.
Outside, Leo is enraged that Giller returned empty handed.
Giller meets up with Dias and a huge combined Empire/Republic force stage themselves outside the island's base. The force Leo to stand down, as he wants to rush in by himself if need be to rescue Sally. Giller acknowledges to himself that Leo's right: when push came to shove Giller didn't save Sally.
Sally (as a civilian) being held prisoner prevents the massed forces from attacking immediately.
As night approaches, the combined forces send in a Gabrigator and Gannontoise to swim into the island. While the appear to be initially successful, an underwater laser tripwire detects them and the situation turns into a firefight. Leo uses the confusion to slip out and make a dash over the only bridge into the island. The base takes out the bridge in front of him, but Leo uses his Evo Blast and jumps over the gap (surprising Giller and Dias at the same time).
Inside the base, Sally hears the fighting break out. But before long, Melville approaches the cell and releases Sally. Hannah states that Dr Land had been like a father figure to her, and that he had not to Sally, so Sally wasn't needed. Sally leaves but is dejected but this comment.
Leo finds her wandering aimlessly outside, and Sally snaps back to her senses. Like with Giller she immediately asks Leo to get the pendant. Leo tells her the pendant is important, but right now, she is the number 1 most important thing. He takes her and flees.
Given the rescue of Sally, the forces can start the all-out assault.
In response, Dr Land and Shigaru begin to active the partially complete Omega Rex. Hannah boards as the pilot.
