Meanwhile, Commander Martin Champion and several other scientists perform exterior repair jobs on Atari Solar Satellite Station One. One of the satellite panels breaks away and Champion flies over with his jetpack to repair it. After securing the panel, he consults with his colleague Dr. Lucas Orion. Moments later, Atari assistant director Lydia Perez contacts them and instructs them to report to the Institute.

Synopsis: Martin reflects upon the first time that he met Lydia Perez. In October of 1998, an enemy nation launched a meteor weapon at the NASA colony stationed on the moon. The meteor wiped out 75% of the colonists, leaving ten workers trapped in the ruins of a laboratory. NASA director Lasky sent astronaut Martin Champion on an emergency mission to rescue the survivors. En route, he linked up with Space Station One crew chief, Lydia Perez. Together, they boarded a shuttle and executed emergency operations on the surface. This brutal attack signaled the beginning of what would come to be known as the Five-Year War.
