Zeta and Ro track Dr. Boyle, an associate of Dr. Selig's, to the Hub, a business/commercial center and center of air traffic. However, Boyle has set a trap, and attaches a chip to Zeta which will not allow him to use his cred card. He tells Zeta to test it on a computer nearby. Zeta is deemed vagrant, and is tracked by security guards. Boyle says he'll remove the chip if Zeta and Ro steal parts for his new project. They both agree. Zeta steals several parts, but after several close calls, he and Ro come up with a plan to stop him. They allow several NSA agents to see Ro seemingly giving parts to Dr. Boyle, and Zeta in a hologram accepting them and confessing everything. Zeta and Ro get Boyle to remove the chip, and then the agents chase after Boyle. Zeta and Ro escape on a hyper plane, but Rush and West follow, only to be locked in second class while the fugitives are in first class.
