Prelude to battle
There was a large amount of satellite baffling over an area in Union territory. Surveillance drones before they were destroyed the Polity received images of a facility.
Both the Vanguard and the gen:LOCK team managed to save Heng Li Wu and the other Polity scientists from the Union. However, Nemesis manages to retreat from Atlanta via Union dropship thus sending Julian Chase falling to the ground. The two battle again at The Anvil later on.
