Synopsis
Zartan believes McGuire Air Force base is the Force headquarters and infiltrates to confirm, causing the Commander to recall the Guard agent surveilling Ft. Wadsworth (home of the Pit). Hawk is tipped off when the Force at McGuire return and see the real deal there, causing an assault force to be sent to McGuire to repel any attack. The Force defend the base when the Dreadnoks attack instead of just making an opening for the Cobra strike force, spoiling the element of surprise. Billy is caught looking into Cobra documents by the Baroness and Bludd and offer him a spot in the resistance.
