Synopsis
Section 9 is assigned to infiltrate an off-shore maritime platform that has been taken over by anti-cybernetic terrorists and rescue a team sent in by another branch of government. Of interest is the fact that the terrorists seem to be led by the daughter of a leading cyber-prostetic manufacturer abducted sixteen years ago, who apparently hasn't aged since then.
