Meet the Parents
Dutch and D'avin are sparring when they are interrupted by a call from Turin, who sends them on a mission to track down Khlyen’s last Red 17 transmission to Prodigy, a school for gifted youth in orbit around Westerley. They are given a transport warrant to escort three children to the school.
In the meantime, Johnny finds Pawter in a dusty, outback settlement of the Salt Plains. Pawter was taken captive and in order to leave she has to beat Big Borna in arm westling, which she does with the help of her medical training. Afterward, she tells Johnny she has leaked information on plans by The Company to build massive walls around every town on Westerley.
In Old Town, D'avin and Dutch find Jake, the boy they’re sent to escort to Prodigy, only after roughing up and disarming his father. Jake's older brother, Olin, is already at Prodigy. Johnny and Pawter join the group and everyone, including two girls that were selected as students as well, arrive at Prodigy. The team is surprised when they find no one at the school. No teachers, no students, until they find one person they don’t want to see: Delle Seyah Kendry.
Delle explains that the students are missing from their cryopods. The students are taught through neurofeeding while in cryogenic stasis. While in stasis students are looked after by Malta Chambers, who is also missing.
Malta appears on a large video screen and issues the group an ultimatum. She’ll keep quiet about the illegal practices of neurofeeding at the school, if Delle Seyah is brought to justice. When the team attempts to capture Chambers, they realize that she is a hologram programed by Jake’s brother Olin. Olin has plans to hijack Lucy and leave with Jake. He shuts off life support for the school in order to force the Killjoys to let him take Lucy. While D’avin and Pawter take care of the children, Dutch and Delle Seyah try to reach the control room to restart life support systems and Johnny tries to stop Olin on Lucy. With Delle Seyah’s help Dutch is able to unlock Prodigy’s mainframe and restore life support to the facility. Johnny uses a hologram of Jake to help talk some sense into the Olin, who’s brain has been overloaded by the Red 17 transmission that was implanted by the neurofeeding system. With everyone safe, they are able to leave Prodigy.
