Shipwreck, disguised as the Ishmali Ambassador Ahmed Hassan, has been captured by Cobra. He is put on board a Stinger, watched from afar by Footloose and Crankcase on the A.W.E. Striker. They radio Flint on the Dragonfly and follows them thanks to a tracer hidden in Shipwreck's cuff link. The Stingers stop in a field in the middle of nowhere. Shipwreck realises what is happening so he drops the cuff link as the signal won't be traced where he's going.
Flint soon arrives at the site, to be attacked by two Stingers but both are destroyed by the arriving A.W.E. Striker. The three Action Force members find the tracer and then a trapdoor underground. In a tunnel below Shipwreck realises Cobra have built a tunnel to the main sewers and stored Water Moccasins there. The troopers take him to one and handcuff him to a rail on it, but suddenly one sees the tattoo on his forearm. His cover blown, Shipwreck lashes out but the trooper drops the handcuff key in the water. Shipwreck seizes the controls of the Moccasin and speeds away, without a clue where he's going.
