A demon (in a giant test tube)
This story takes place two years after the last issue
Cadets Taylor and Morgan find themselves on the run when their training squad is
attacked by a group of Human Defense Corps personnel who have been taken over by Starro
probes. They evade capture and hide out in the biolabs of the undersea facility where
they were to conduct a war game in. Eventually their squad leader, Montogmery Kelly
with a Starro probe on his face tracks them down, but Cadet Taylor attacks him with a
paralyzer. It is revealed that this was actually prelude to 'prisoner of war training'
- none of the Corps were really under Starro control. For evading capture, Taylor and
Morgana are relieved of this training and given a plum posting to an orbital station, but
Taylor hates himself for attacking Kelly with an unknown, possibly lethal weapon, breaking
the spirit of his vow never to kill a fellow human.
