The Firewall team has cornered their target, Loren Kristol, but they must catch him while Extropia descends into chaos! A powerful hacker is waging war against Nomic, the legal AGI, and the entire habitat is now a battlefield between confused citizens, hacked security bots, and paranoid mercenaries. Meanwhile, Loren Kristol has revealed himself and is on his way to escape with a number of Iktomi/hybrid morphs in his possession. The team must find and stop him before he gets away. Loren has a few tricks up his sleeve though. The exciting conclusion to the Extropia chapter is here!
Aspen the async uplift returns to the investigation! She quickly thinks up a scheme to steal the data from the Ultimates. It involves kidnapping, body switching, and powerful drugs. There’s also the small matter of alien hybrid morphs being built and sold to wealthy clients. In a place where money buys power and protection, can a small group of determined sentinels overcome the incredibly wealthy Ultimates and their elusive ally, Loren Kristol?
The investigation into Loren Kristol continues in Extropia. Data recovered from the Titanian Commonwealth investigation pointed to a meeting between Loren and the Ultimates that took place on Extropia. The Firewall team must now find out what the meeting was about and where Loren went. First, they must adjust to culture of Extropia. Between micro-torts and the relentless nature of anarcho-capitalism, can the team successfully pursue their investigation without alerting the Ultimates or Kristol?
