Last time, Vee was contacted by Ryder, whose operation against the Obscura Cabal was a bit less 'scalpel' and a bit more ... 'sledgehammer'. She confessed to crashing the freighter into an industrial warehouse a day earlier, trying to explain that she had to think fast, targeting it at the mob boss's penthouse before bailing out - but the damaged autopilot steered the ship off-course. Ryder also explained that the ship she had been contracted by the Cabal to steal, was packed with guns, missiles and strange high-tech robotic suits. Enough to start an insurrection, or a coup. However, Ryder managed to ditch the cargo containers in high atmosphere, trying to scupper whatever the Cabal was planning. But she may have involved herself, and by extension, her family and the Laika-7 crew, in something far more deadly than simply defecting from her old gang. After Vee and Tabitha visit the local chemist to get more of Tabitha's breathing medicine and Radar spends some time upgrading Talesin, the Obscura Cabal sends their A-game to collect Ryder's insurance. The Taskmaster known as Gomez drove up in an armored truck and approached the house, accompanied by a team of Ysoki thugs. Vee attempted to bluff their way out of the engagement, but Radar, not being one for subtlety, pushed Vee out of the way with his rifle drawn and pulled the trigger on Gomez.
