CONTINUED FROM PART ONE.... Data Base Journal Entry 47-11, mark 26. Having defeated Phase three of Project New Order by destroying the Icarus Platform, the Power Team sets about stopping Phase four, the Prometheus phase. The Prometheus phase intends to start a plasma storm along the east coast of the United States - killing all life. To stop Dread's plan the team must assault Dread's home base, Volcania, directly. The Power Team has carried out the destruction of the Icarus space platform so exactly, that the satellite is hurtling toward Volcania. Two hundred tons of smoking metal is plunging right at Dread's stronghold. Preparing for the impact, Dread orders shield priority to Prometheus section and prepares damage control teams. Dread also sends Soaron to intercept the blazing molten mass that was once the Icarus space platform. But Soaron's blasters can't disrupt the great mass and Soaron is shattered into bits when he is hit full-force by the re-entering debris. The Icarus platform crashes directly into Volcania causing great damage. But according to Mentor, Prometheus is still operational. The Power Team must enter Dread's domain to stop Prometheus. The Jumpship lands within Volcania. The team activates their Powersuits and camouflages the Jumpship holographically. Hawk's Powersuit is dangerously low on power. The team penetrates deep into Volcania. Pilot and Scout decipher the schematic diagrams of Volcania and discover a method to stop Prometheus from reaching resolution. Dread discovers that Power is within Volcania and sends Blastarr to kill him. The repeated battles have taken their toll on Hawk. Hawk's Powersuit reaches the total system failure point. Tank must now withdraw from the battle and get an injured Hawk back to the safety of the Jumpship. Power, Scout, and Pilot continue on, headed for Dread's control room, the place where Prometheus is being controlled. Enroute, they are confronted by Blastarr. Blastarr is impervious to their weaponry. Power, Scout, and Pilot must retreat. Pilot sets a trap for Blastarr using Volcania's own vast electrical power system. Blastarr treads onto an electrified section of floor and overloads completely - exploding into large pieces. Power, Scout, and Pilot, enter Dread's throne room. Dread's holographic image is seated in the usual place. The real Dread is hidden. Dread apparently knows where a Powersuit is weakest because he knocks out both Scout and Pilot with single shots. The stage is set for a one to one confrontation between Captain Power and Lord Dread. Power and Dread battle hand to hand, armed only with Power Staffs. Laccki interferes briefly, but Power and Dread struggle on. As the battle rages, Scout recovers and is able to manually override the computer controls for Prometheus. Dread panics at being outdone and escapes. Power decides not to go after Dread until Prometheus is fully deactivated. Overmind is trying to regain control. Scout is able to cause premature implosion of Dread's broadcast power stations. With the energy source destroyed, the Prometheus threat is ended. The Power Team departs totally triumphant over Dread. Project New Order is completely undone, Volcania is severely damaged, both biodreads have been rendered dysfunctional, and Dread himself is on the run. It is the first decisive victory for the resistance. RETRIBUTION is yet to come.
