PP-1 is given some off time to enjoy. They head in to town to enjoy a local holiday. While there someone approaches them and tells them he needs to speak to General Marcello Travis. He refuses to tell them what he knows. After some debate, they decide to take him back. However, his watch is set with some kind of strange mechanism. On high alert, the guest is taken into the base. While there, an enemy strike force appeared outside the base. With them are three of the cannons that PP-1 encountered during Aggressive Negotiations. The enemies charge, but about 100 yards away, they suddenly vanish, leaving the cannons and a small force behind. It turns out they somehow managed to teleport to the lower levels of Planeshifter Project Base. PP-1 quickly descends and finds them on sub level 3. After clearing the floor, the start on to sub level 4. Molmara Tares comes up and tells them that the base is completely overrun. Contacting General Travis, he gives them the order to burn the lower floors. Setting the timer for the charges, the head up to the ground floor and meet the General. The large blast doors at the entrance of the mountain are sealed and the base is safe, but the cannons are trained on the door. PP-1 decides to go out and attempt to disable the cannons.
