Synopsis for "Sacrifice"
Despite the injuries he sustained from Eye, Max made it back to the precinct. Dolly treated Max's wounds and tells him that Harlan Eltor, the CEO of Engen was murdered. Max knows that Engen is one of Hardcore's leading energy producers which requires special attention. Max investigates Eltor's skeletal remains and as far as he could tell Eltor was burnt alive by a radiation burst. Max suspects Synnar but he can't prove it yet so he has Dolly do some digging around on any possible connections between Synnar and Engen.
Max thinks Synnar's motive for killing Eltor is because of his involvement with Hardcore's new technologies such as renewable energy sources but Dolly does come up with an alternative. Dolly discovered that Eltor had transferred huge funds to three outer rim banks which is a usual method for paying off members of the League of Insect Assassins. Both Max and Dolly figure that Eltor was the one who hired the insectoids to attack Synnar at WelCen. Dolly goes to the outer rims in order to investigate any holdings Synnar may have while Max observes Seek's activities.
Seek and Find have been constructing the energy collection system for Entreplaneteur's Inc but Max knows the system will only work for Synnar when it is completed. Unfortunately for Dolly, she finds a cascade bomb which is programmed to detonate thereby destroying any incriminating evidence that Synnar may have left before he came to Hardcore. Once the outer rim planets were destroyed, the energy collection system activated and gathered all of the energy that was dispersed from the destruction.
