After a guard abuses and kills a Miner, a rebellion starts. A group steal a shuttle in an attempt to escape, but it is destroyed by a missile attack. Parker fights the Ultor guards, and learns that Doctor Capek created the disease, leading the to rebel Red Faction to kill him, but not before finding there was a cure. Parker then destroys the Missile system, and uses a shuttle to travel to an Ultor Space Station.

The cure for The Plague is discovered and is being given out to the Miners.
