Military bases find themselves under attack by an unknown foe. The enemy attacks under fog and decimates the opponent. Aside from a single set of Zoid footprints, the Empire and Republic forces are unable to gather much intel about their aggressor.
At the same time, in the True Empire, they too find themselves under attack. Fog rolls in like with the other bases, but their opponent is different. The True Empire find themselves stacked up against a hoard of Jamminga. Foot soldiers initially repel the attack but Shigaru deploys Kill Scythe to deal with the Jamminga quickly. This initially works but the Jamminga seem nearly endless.
However, one Jamminga begins to change. Its features shift from green to purple and it sends out a wave of energy emanating from its eyes. This energy appears to infect the Kill Scythe and shut down their attack.
Jamminga quickly overrun the True Empire base and in the battle Hannah Melville's prison cell breaks and she escapes.
Aldridge, Spiegel and Shigaru find that the Jamminga reach their command centre. While they can hold off the Zoids with firearms, one of the Jamminga again turns purple. It asks for their cooperation. After a few Jamminga are downed, the purple one shifting body each time it's destroyed, it reveals its objective is: Frank Land. It offers the True Empire a battalion of "invincible" Zoids.
Aldridge and Spiegel head to their mechs but are cut off by the Kill Scythe from before. Spiegel is wearing a pilot suit while Aldridge is not. Before Spiegel can dock to his Zoid, the Kill Scythe gain a lock and he stops moving. Knowing he could be taken down before activating his Zoid.
This turns out to be fortuitous as Shigaru agrees to the Jamminga's request. He offers up his Zoids to the Jamminga and those Zoids plus their pilots (through the pilot suit) are tainted with the same purple energy that affected the Kill Scythe.
Elsewhere, Hannah flees the base. She manages to board her blue Sniptera. The Zoid itself helps her get away.
She finds herself quickly under attack from three more of the True Empire's Snipetera. Without a pilot suit and with only one cannon, she's not able to last long and is forced to crash land.
- The Zoid that attacked them was clearly the Zero Phantoth, but the name of this Zoid was not mentioned in this episode or in the clips after the episode. The kit was released on the 26th of June 2020, significantly predating its anime appearance.
