17: Under the Skin
Phaeton's scientists have succeeded in creating a Neo sapien that looks like Alice Noretti, who was a member Able Squad when she was killed. Phaeton places her on a Terran worker transport, having learned that the Resistance plans to free the workers. Phaeton assumed (correctly) that she would be placed back with Marsh's squad, and since Marsh was a favorite of Winfield it would only be a matter of time before Noretti got the opportunity to assassinate Winfield. Meanwhile the Marsh/O'Reilly romance seems to progress, but is hindered by the arrival of Noretti. Marsala begins to notice clues that indicate Noretti is a Neo, but Marsh is in denial when Marsala shares his suspicions. Winfield decides to go to the Venusian surface to examine the situation and mingle with the troops, and of course expects to meet Marsh. Noretti acts, and has the opportunity to kill Winfield. But an identity crisis prevents her from doing so, for she embraces her Alice Noretti persona. She then tries to fight her way past various e-frames and jumptroops, but after getting hit by O'Reilly her e-frame crashes into the canyon wall, killing her.

Tuesday, October 11th, 1994
22: Fire Ship
An attempt by the ExoFleet to covertly land e-frames on Mars to investigate a gigantic complex fails miserably, with most of the e-frames destroyed and pilots killed, because a spy tipped off the Neos to their arrival. That spy is Barca, who has Able Squad (the only survivors) captured, and proceeds to plot with Typhonus. The plan is to load a Neo ship, which Barca will claim to have captured, with explosives and then get it close enough to the Resolute II that it will be caught in the explosion. Hallas helps Able Squad escape, and the Neo ship destroys Barca's own ship rather than the Resolute II.
Wednesday, October 12th, 1994
23: Martian Luck

Torres, believed dead by her fellow ExoTroopers, takes charge of the ExoScouts that found her. A few of them resent this, and while she tries to lead them all to her exosquad, they arrange for her to have an accident that they believe results in her death. The ExoScouts are then captured by a group of raptor Neo warriors, which had been dispatched by Typhonus in the hopes that the ExoScouts could reveal the location of the exosquads on Mars. But Torres is not dead, and she manages, one by one, to free the ExoScouts who then truly follow her. Meanwhile, Able Squad and the remainder of Baker Squad have arrived at the site of what they believe to be an underground Neo complex, but they discover that it is something far more unusual.

Both Marsh and Typhonus make seizing the alien technology their top priority. Both the ExoSquads and Neo frames make it to a central complex, and a battle follows. A fusion pack explosion in the core causes the alien complex to begin to self-destruct. Everyone tries to frantically escape, as the planet itself suffers from quakes and lava flows. Soon after the ExoTroopers and Torres with the ExoScouts escape, the planet Mars is destroyed in a gigantic explosion.
Tuesday, October 18th, 1994

Phaeton gives orders to Lucullus to begin work on a bunker underneath Phaeton City. Marsh attempts to rendezvous with Marsala and Felson in Maine, but realizes Turner's treachery and is able to escape the trap set by the Neos. The Neo megas claim Marsala's body, and take him to their base on Maniton Island, where they revive him. Galba and the others explain that they want him to kidnap Phaeton, for he will not surrender despite the fact that the Neo sapiens are losing the war. That way they can take charge and make peace. Marsala reluctantly agrees to their plan. Meanwhile Picasso has discovered that Phaeton is in the tunnels beneath the city. Once he notifies the Resistance they mount an operation, including Marsh, to go after Phaeton. Beneath Phaeton City, the Resistance attacks and Phaeton blames Lucullus and Gracchus. As Phaeton goes to join the battle he is ambushed by Marsala. Lucullus and Gracchus use the confusion to try and shift the blame for the Resistance assault on Livia. Phaeton is able to escape from Marsala by exiting his e-frame and utilizing the fact that the Auto Mutation Syndrome has somewhat liquefied his body to enter a sewer pipe only a few inches in diameter. As Marsala is leaving he comes across the Resistance in full retreat, and their chances of escape do not appear to be good. Marsala fires a few missiles to collapse the tunnel on the pursuing Neos. Lucullus and Gracchus, assuming that Phaeton is dead, begin to organize a purge. Phaeton arrives on the scene, however, and has them arrested instead.
Thursday, October 20th, 1994
29: Trial by Combat
A combined E-frame/Jumptroop mission to Antarctica to destroy the Neo warrior breeding complex becomes a disaster, as apparently only Yuri Stavrogan survives. Professor Algernon has made modifications to Alec DeLeon's E-frame, which provides a closer link between pilot and E-frame. Able Squad gets sent to Antarctica to try to locate the breeding complex. While planting a sensor which was to be part of a network, Marsh gets captured by some Neo warriors. Galba tells him to pretend to be Takagi, since all Neo Sapien commanders have orders to hand Marsh over to Phaeton. To test the capabilities of a Neo Lord, Praetorius has one duel with Marsh, who he believes to be Takagi. Marsh tries to escape, and his E-frame somehow contacts Alec's, and so Able Squad is about to attempt to get him. But Marsh gets defeated by a Neo Lord, who forcibly removes him from his E-frame.
Friday, October 21st, 1994
30: The Perfect Warrior
Galba pretends, for the sake of Praetorius, to conjecture that the ExoTrooper they have captured is in fact Marsh masquerading as Takagi to avoid being taken to Phaeton (which is true because he told Marsh to). Praetorius has the Neo Lord spare Marsh's life and taken to his cell. When Marsh is about to be taken to Phaeton, Galba helps him escape and get to Kaz's ExoFighter. He then contacts Able Squad, which is able to locate his position and proceeds to, along with Jumptroop Company Charlie, attack the brood complex. Marsh was since hunted down by Neo Lords inside the complex, but was able to escape though it meant abandoning the ExoFighter. He makes his way to the geothermal processing plant and is able to destroy it, thereby destroying all the developing Neo lords as well. He is rescued by Stavrogan and DeLeon, while a bitter Praetorius is left to ponder future plans.
Monday, October 24th, 1994
31: The Price of Courage
Phaeton has Shiva take most of what remains of the Neo Sapien fleets to Venus in a final attempt to destroy the ExoFleet. With the Resolute II undergoing repairs, Admiral Winfield takes a large portion of the fleet towards Earth in an attempt to fool the Neo Sapiens into thinking an attack is imminent, and therefore withdraw to defend Earth. Shiva calls Winfield's bluff, and proceeds with an attack on the fleet at Venus. An E-frame assault on the Neo Fleet fails, but a follow-up by torpedo boats inflicts heavy damages on the Neo Fleet. Shiva then personally leads an e-frame assault, but is shot down and dies as the attack fails.
Tuesday, October 25th, 1994
32: Dark River
Marsh, Burns, and Marsala go to South America to retrieve a Terran geneticist named Ketzer, who the ExoFleet hopes will help them discover a weakness in the Neo lords. Although they destroy a Neo patrol they encounter, Draconis becomes aware of their presence in the rain forest. The three are then attacked by green humanoids, who succeed in capturing Nara. They take her to their village. She awakens with her arm hurting. Ketzer is there, for it was he who altered the natives, as well as himself. Ketzer notifies her comrades of her whereabouts, and they soon arrive. The Neos also pick up the signal, and Draconis is convinced by Medusa that he will be rewarded if he were to personally lead a successful attack. Medusa then reports to Livia that Draconis only serves for the sake of his own gain, not out of loyalty. Ketzer asks for the help of the ExoTroopers in attacking the nearby city Manaus. When they refuse he reveals that he has injected Nara with a retrovirus that will alter her DNA to make her like them, but has a compound that will prevent it if they help him. Just then the Neos launch an attack on the village, forcing both the villagers and the exotroopers to flee. Draconis is killed for disloyalty on Livia's order by a group Neo lords, ending Neo pursuit. Marsh tells Ketzer to recreate the compound that will cure Nara, but Ketzer says that he lied when he said there was a cure. Marsh wants to take Ketzer back to the ExoFleet, as were his orders, but Ketzer escapes when his altered humans distract the exotroopers with the possibility of an attack.

DeLeon receives permission from Marsh to stay on the moon with the jumptroops to help them. Battles rage both on the moon and above it. DeLeon and O'Reilly battle Typhonus and kill him, but Alec is mortally wounded in the process. Before he dies he has O'Reilly help him use the black box from Typhonus' E-frame to appear to be Typhonus in a transmission to Phaeton, in which he tells him the Neo pilots are either surrendering or retreating. As punishment for such betrayal, Phaeton activates the self-destruct mechanism on all the Neo E-frames. The combination of this and Alec, as Typhonus, telling the Neo troops on the moon to surrender ends the battle. Afterwards, with Alec DeLeon dead, O'Reilly delivers DeLeon's E-frame black box to Maggie Weston.

These workers join the resistance in the tanks that they had built for an assault on Phaeton City. On the way they are met by Neo tanks, and a battle begins at Battle Creek. Before the ExoFleet attack Weston gives Alec's flight recorder to Algernon. Meanwhile Galba learns of Phaeton's doomsday device and tries to notify the resistance, which is unable to contact the ExoFleet before the invasion begins.

Winfield then recalls Able Squad, and wants them to depart immediately despite Marsh's objection that the jumptroops won't have proper cover. On the Resolute II Winfield tells them that he is sending them to locate Phaeton's doomsday device, and Algernon will go with them to determine the best way to destroy it. Bronski, with no E-frame, remains behind. Meanwhile Praetorius has prematurely released all his Neo Lords, so they have no wings and lack intelligence. But they cause immense trouble for the jumptroops, destroying their evac shuttle and forcing them to withdraw. Winfield lets Bronski take his personal shuttle to get them out, and he arrives just as it appeared as though the jumptroops last stand at the Washington Monument would fail.

The shuttle carrying Charlie Company is shot down. The battle at Battle Creek between the resistance e-frames and captured tanks and a group of Neo tanks ends, with the resistance victorious. Livia orders Thrax to bring all of his troops from the Amazon to Phaeton City for a final stand, but he tells her that he intends to save as many Neo lives as possible, and plans to surrender to the ExoFleet. This prompts Phaeton to issue orders for a purge of all officers by the Neo lords. Seeing E-frames approaching, Thrax orders all his troops into the jungle. Once Thrax is captured and taken away, Ketzer attacks the Neo base and with only Medusa there has little trouble injecting her with something. Able Squad locates the complex where Phaeton's doomsday device was constructed, but finds that it is now gone.

O'Reilly fixes the jumptroopers shuttle so that the remainder of Charlie Company, along with Bronski, can also make it there. Despite Livia's protestations, Phaeton will not leave the city. When he attempts to activate the doomsday device, he finds it has been sabotaged and he knows it was Livia who did it. Able Squad battles their way through the tunnels beneath the city, and Nara, Marsala, and Takagi reach the main chamber just as Phaeton is about to flip the now functional switch to the doomsday device. A battle ensues which ends when Nara, at first instinctively using her strange powers to stop Phaeton, kills him.

39: Beyond Chaos
Around the world Neo Sapiens are surrendering, bringing the war to a close. Able Squad is performing this duty in South America with the assistance of Thrax. Elsewhere we see that Kaz is now a cadet at ExoFleet Academy, where Avery Butler is now commandant. One day Able Squad is ambushed by Ketzer and his group of genetically altered humans, but Able Squad drives them off. A month later finds Nara returning to Venus, and she attempts to tell Marsala of her feelings for him. But Marsala makes it clear that this cannot be. Nara then experiences another manifestation of her strange abilities. Meanwhile Galba informs Weston that he has made a new body for Alec DeLeon, and transferred his mind from his E-frame's black box into the new body. Marsala makes a moving speech to the Homeworlds Senate convincing them to create one last brood of Neo Sapiens, one that would have the ability to procreate naturally. When Napier goes to a Neo internment camp to announce this, an attempt is made on his life. It is thwarted, however, by a clone of Shiva. Algernon uses GRAF shield technology to reassemble the planet Mars. Winfield gives Marsh one more mission, helping the Pirates dismantle their base on Chaos. He meets Colleen O'Reilly, who tells him she isn't ready to leave the ExoFleet yet. At Chaos, Marsh witnesses a strange phenomenon that causes the planet Chaos to disappear, and it then joins one of three mysterious ships that is en route to the inner solar system.
