Disturbed by some unusual behavior from Joshua (as well as Alec's new job working at Jam Pony), Max's concern for Joshua is heightened when sector police killings are attributed to a "beast-like" creature. Her anxiety increases when Logan points out her lack of knowledge about the creatures that grew up in the Manticore basement. As Max races to try to figure out the mystery of the killings before more are committed, events culminate in a shocking conclusion.
In the year 2019, the United States has become a third-world country in the wake of the Pulse - an electromagnetic shockwave unleashed by nuclear terrorists in 2009. This is Max's world, an unforgiving place even for a genetically-engineered soldier like her. From her point of view, she's just a revved-up girl trying to make a run-down world a better place.
On the run from her creators and constantly in search of her past, Max joins forces with the idealistic cyberjournalist "Eyes Only", otherwise known as Logan Cale. This show is an entertaining combination of action, drama, humor, romance and suspense, and it is an intriguing "what if" look into the not-too-distant future.
