Sturtz knows something is up. His dojo has been losing students to the Maricode Coding Academy and he's taken it upon himself to do some surveillance. Disguised as a janitor, Sturtz snoops around looking for an open terminal to hack into. He notices his star student, Christine, furiously typing away in a classroom. She looks confident and poised as the rest of the class looks over her shoulder in amazement. Sturtz isn't sure what's she's working on but he's never seen her this excited. He pushes his mop and bucket to the nearest broom closet and splices his portable computer terminal directly into a length of twinax... he's in.
