SYNOPSIS:

This synopsis is by Sally Dye .

Teaser

Mauser is monitoring an unusual amount of Bailey activity on the surface. Hel says they also have another matter to worry about. She puts Voice on the speaker so Cleo and Sarge can hear, too. Cleo is excited: "You mean I actually get to put a voice with Voice?" When Voice starts speaking, Cleo is amazed that she sounds British. Voice says another team has turned against them. She has lost contact with the team leader. Hel and company are to "neutralize" them at once. Cleo thinks she should get some "serious firepower" in her gauntlets, but Hel gives her a photon phaser, for defensive use only. Cleo is bummed: "Futuristic pepper spray. Great."

The team takes off down the shaft and lands on an abandoned level, where they set up an ambush. The other team -- two men and a woman -- approach. A fight erupts. Cleo wants to use her "pepper spray", but Hel won't let her. In the midst of the fight, Sarge recognizes the other team leader: "Quint?" The fight continues. Hel tells Voice that they have the other team pinned down, and Voice says to eliminate them. Meanwhile, the other team leader is telling Voice that they have come under heavy fire. Voice tells him that they have no choice -- they have to eliminate Hel's team.

Act I

The other team sees an exit on the far side of the area and uses their web launchers to pull themselves through it. Sarge: "We gotta remember that move." Hel agrees that the team is good. Sarge says yes, it's Quint's team. Cleo is puzzled, since they have met Quint's team and thought they were totally loyal to Voice. Cleo thinks they should try to talk to the other team and find out why their loyalty has apparently shifted. Voice warns that they have already killed three other teams who tried to talk.

Voice contacts Quint to suggest they turn and force an assault on Hel's team. Quint plans to go up to the next level and come down from above while his team members -- Porter and Lara -- take them on in a frontal attack.

Hel, Sarge and Cleo split up to look for another exit from the level, and Cleo runs into Quint. She stops Quint from blasting her and tells him that Voice really has it in for his team and that Hel's orders are to take them out. Before Quint can answer, Sarge appears and kicks his weapon away. She and Quint fight. Sarge pins Quint to the wall and is about to kill him.

Hel asks Voice if they have any more info on the Bailey activity. Voice says to focus on the mission at hand. Cut to a command room where Voice's "voice" is being sent by none other than Creegan, using a voice disguiser.

Cleo stops Sarge from killing Quint. Quint and Sarge argue about which team is the traitors. Voice tells Quint to ask Sarge about saving Lily's life in the betrayer factory. Sarge realizes that only Voice could be telling him that. She radios Hel that something is going on. They go to meet Hel. But "Voice" keeps telling Hel that Quint is tricking Sarge.

Porter and Lara are trying to find Quint. They see Quint with the team and assume that Quint has been captured. Porter attacks. Sarge throws herself in front of Cleo, but Quint is caught in the crossfire and falls. Lara appears and blasts Hel. Creegan: "Ah, there's nothing quite like the sounds of Voice teams killing each other."

Act II

Cleo uses her web launcher to swing across the room and knock Lara back. Hel grabs Lara and pins her to the door. Cleo yells that the other team still thinks that Hel, Sarge and Cleo are the traitors. "Voice" tells Hel to finish the mission. Hel looks at Lara and then steps back. Porter takes this opportunity to blast Hel, but her shields hold. Hel, Cleo and Lara duck behind a partition. "Voice" tells Hel again to take the other team out, but makes the mistake of calling her Helen. Hel now knows it's Creegan. She calls to Creegan to come out. Creegan enters, followed by a multitude of his mutant minions. The two teams take on the mutants while Creegan stands watching, unfazed by the blasts hitting him. Cleo steps out and decides to try and help, so she casts her web launcher, whipping the ends around Creegan, trapping him. Cleo is elated, but Sarge and Hel scream for her to disengage. Too late, because Creegan uses the web to pull Cleo to him. He's about to kill her when Cleo uses her photon phaser to fry his shield generator. Creegan falls helpless to the ground. The remaining mutants are driven off, and Voice instructs them to take Creegan to the prison level and get back to the lab because the Bailey activity has increased.

A confessor comes to visit Creegan in the prison. Creegan doesn't want to confess anything, however. He says there's no use in confessing the sins of the past when the sin he's about to commit is the greatest of all. He says that when he dies, the world will die with him. In his mind's eye, he sees the Baileys bringing destruction to everything.

Act III

The confessor wants to know what Creegan means by saying the world will end with him. Creegan says that the entire human race will be exterminated. The confessor expresses disbelief that Creegan will be able to accomplish this from his prison cell. Creegan begins to tell the confessor about Voice and how he discovered Hel, the daughter of an old colleague, to be one of Voice's resistance fighters. The confessor says that if Voice really exists -- which he professes to be skeptical of -- then she's fighting to save humanity, so why should Creegan hate her so much? Creegan says that she is ruining plans that are 500 years old. The confessor deduces that Creegan is a thaw, and he wears the makeup because his skin has been damaged from overexposure to cryo fluids. Creegan accuses the confessor of being there to try and learn his secrets: "That's it, isn't it.....Voice?"

Act IV

The confessor seems puzzled, but Creegan says that confessors just listen; they don't challenge; they don't provoke. He is convinced that the confessor is really Voice. He recounts more of the times he tried to reach Voice through Hel and her desire to find her father. The confessor slowly morphs into a tall woman -- Voice. Creegan says she's as beautiful as ever. She gives him one last chance to tell her how he forged an alliance with the Baileys. She wants to know who leads the Baileys. Creegan says he does -- or he did, anyway. Voice: "How do we stop them, Creegan?" Creegan: "The name's Bailey. George Bailey." The Baileys begin attacking the tunnels leading to the underground.

Creegan is strapped into the demolecularizer. Voice wants to know why he created the Baileys. Creegan says that 500 years ago the world was dying. The Baileys were designed as environmental control units, but they developed minds of their own and started trying to destroy humanity. Creegan says that nothing can stop them, but Voice says he's wrong. They have moved the shaft cannons to the surface. She pushes the button to start the demolecularization and radios Hel. She says Creegan told her nothing before he died and for Hel to start the counterattack. Aboveground, the shaft cannons emerge and begin firing. The Baileys fire back and the battle is on.
