Hiding within Eddie Martinez’s vast underground network, the Resistance’s remaining members lick their wounds and recuperate. Their headquarters are gone. The organization’s infrastructure is gone. But, most devastatingly, Jerry is gone. How are they supposed to continue without him and his power? How can they possibly defeat the Order now?
Riding high from their overwhelming victory in Weed, the small man basks in the glory and goodwill of his Orion overlords. With Jerry gone and the Resistance in shambles, Mr. Busk has free reign to implement the Order’s overarching strategy for planetary dominance. He quickly puts his plan into motion, forcing the Resistance to regroup and react.
But is there more to it all? Is this all that there is? Are the Resistance’s resources finite and tapped out? For hundreds of years, the Order has always held the upper hand, currying favor from an all-powerful alien conglomerate—first the Assassin, then Mag-Ex, then Mr. Busk’s evolution. The Order had unlimited support, and the Resistance was always on its own.
Or was it?
