The Kazbek raid has ended in a shambles, with the 58th’s Chig ship escape pod setting down on the planet itself. Everyone except McQueen and Hawkes is captured by what appear to be AIs, one of whom claims that the human race encroached on Chig space first, not the other way around. West is hauled off to a labor camp, where he sees Kylen. Meanwhile, the Saratoga is closing in on Kazbek…but even if Ross manages to retrieve his wayward soldiers, their spirits may be broken by AI torture.
Guest Cast: Michael Mantell (Howard Sewell), David Gardner (Klein)
