The hunt for Ellen is on.

Jade, from the VR rig in Ring 2 uses the Clank-swarm to unbury Val, contain the zombified soldiers, and track Ellen into her bolt hole.

Miranda runs into the dark area speakers briefly with Storm and brings her our not even a little bit killed.

Miranda is airlifted to Val, who is still in Ring 0. She stabilizes him. He is going to need new legs. They both airlift back to the hospital, where Val is placed in a battlefield-rated autodoc for primary recovery. His legs have been crushed and some internal organ damage is found.

Red takes off after Ellen, leaving Deke and Grace in the control centre. Grace follows Red a moment later.

When Deke sees Ellen's trajectory - to the one and only exit from the Biodome he starts issuing orders to the command staff who remain. The orders are ...not optimal. A young lady gives him shit for this, then returns to her post - shocked at her own behaviour. Deke takes her "recommendations" and gets the colonists in Ellen's line of fire out of the way.

Kaleb begins to think rushing headlong into a fight with a killer mind-controlling cyborg who has ordered an incoming stealth assassin to "Kill Kaleb" may not be wise. He shifts his direction to head toward the exit, looking for ways to pick Ellen off if she somehow gets past the Clanks, Red, Grace and Droo/Vögell.

Jade's Clanks fan out into the 100m diameter area that has gone dark (due to the damage to Bertha's brain) looking for signs of Ellen. They find nothing. Kaleb knows all the nooks and crannies[1] And a search of geophysical surveys reveals that there is a hidden natural chamber in the rock behind one section of the "exterior" wall. There is no evidence of Ellen breaking through the drywall or using a secret door. The Clanks go in ahead of Red, Grace and Droo, finding a cache of weapons, armour, as well as a bolt of Vantablack cloth that also absorbs ultrasound. Red tosses a grenade into the narrow, winding tunnels that lead away from the hidden armoury, and the Clanks use the blast to do some seismic mapping of the cave network. This reveals a sizeable underground river running North, away from Lake Superior. This waterway appears to be quite ancient. It is not clear where it goes.

Jenkins begins to recover from Ellen's mind-control order, and resumes control of the command centre. Storm arrives there, and starts a conversation with the rest of the group, offering sanctuary with Genetek - which is controlled by the Post Darwinist Transhumanist faction.

Disappointed that Ellen has escaped, the party gathers in a Pub in a blackout zone to figure out their next steps.
