Neetra manages to get a message out regarding her planet, Tekka. Monster Minds are about to attack to acquire their powerful fuel, miran, to power his missiles. The Vertim and Batim colonies rival each other for control of the pyramid made of miran. Saw Boss dabbles in intrigue by warning each side that the other is going to attack with the aid of mercenaries (the Lightning League). When the Pride lands on Tekka, she is under fire from all sides. Neetra, a descendant of both colonies, talks to them and convinces them it is Saw Boss' treachery at work and to let Jayce help defeat Saw Boss. The two sides reluctantly join forces and they defeat the Monster Minds. Meanwhile Gillian has been inside the pyramid reading hieroglyphics which reveal the Vertim and Batim peoples are from common ancestors. Their rivalry is over.
