Security has tightened across the Grid after Beck’s acts of rebellion in the guise of Tron, ironically making it harder for Beck to sneak away for further training at Tron’s secret hideout. Spotted as he leaves, Beck tries to evade the Recognizers and hides inside what appears to be a cargo container, only to discover that its cargo consists of fellow programs being taken to fight on the Grid. En route to battle, Beck discovers that some of his fellow prisoners regard Tron as a hero – and others see him as a nuisance.
