Howlyn finally reaches the ship that brought him and the other Atavus to Earth, awakening some of the elite troops that have been frozen in stasis for hundreds of thousands of years. Ra'jel brings Liam Kincaid back for the final confrontation. Hubble Urich supplies the Resistance members with prototype energy {{Hand Cannon}]s, capable of vaporizing an Atavus with a single shot. The heroes storm the Atavus ship, which ends up being disabled due to Howlyn's impatience. Howlyn is killed by his new Number Two. Sandoval finally learns the location of the Resistance base and attacks it, only to be killed by Renee. Renee and Liam manage to take out all the awakened Atavus and prepare to blow up the ship. However, Yulyn pleads with her on behalf of his people. Since the ship's navigation computer holds the coordinates of the Atavus homeworld, Renee decides to return Yulyn and the sleeping Atavus home. Ra'jel, Liam, Renee, and Yulyn leave Earth aboard the Taelon mothership with the Atavus stasis pod, installing the Atavus ID drive to restore full power to the mothership.
