The case contained the components needed to activate a weapons platform in space. The terrorists planned to use the satelite to kill alliance dignitaries during the unification day celebrations.

Bacon, who was enjoying some ill-earned cash at the house of many pleasures, was quickly captured by the crew. He was found to have a ticket to persephone and more knowledge of what had just transpired.

Unfortunately the crew were not the only ones wanting to speak to Bacon, an alliance Marshal and his deputies had come to the house of many pleasures as well. The lead detective, Marshal Rothchild, Was a phycotic and former member of the 771st.

The crew narrowly escaped through a skylight and into the crowded shichang docks. After a few minutes of darting through the crowds the crew met at Whitehalls emporium. The propertier and friend of the crew allowed them to escape through a secret tunnel in his store.

Once the crew and bacon got safely back onto the Lady Liberty bacon got special permission to talk, by authority of the laser Rapier. He spilled everything including the co-ordinates to the weapons platform and a targeting complex on the moon Zues.

The crew decided to clear their names and stop the attack first storming the targeting platform.All went smooth until a ship full of reavers dropped in. Luckily the crew escaped due to the daring piloting of Robert Anderson. Yet one reaver managed to make it on board, and ripped half of Maximillions face off before being pacified.

The crew thought they had saved Newton but Alas, the lead Browncoat terrorist a woman named Nails had decided to crash the weapons platform into the city.

The crew stormed the weapons platform killing Nails. They kept deadeye alive however since he was a war buddy. As the crew flew away Maximillion used his influence to get an allaince cruiser to destroy the weapons platform.

When the crew arrived in Newton the unification celebrations were in full swing. Most of the Crew went to the house of many pleasures for a quit drink. However Marshal Rothchild was in a vengeful mood and attempted to kill the crew. He failed and met a grizzly end.

Later that night prefect Tam made an announcement that as a gesture of reconciliation Newton was going to hold the first Gubernorial election since the war. He endorsed the popular Candidate Harvey Treyman the former commander of 771st.
