Upon landing, Butler found that the Neosapien complex was abandoned, then the jumptroops were attacked by Neosapien E-frames and forced onto the defensive. During the retreat a Neo Mega was captured. Butler called for evacuation and realized that the ambush was too elaborate to destroy a jumptroop assault. Several Exocruisers arrived for the evac and provided E-frame support.
Baker Company and Fox Company had suffered severe losses. The Neo Mega was placed in deep freeze, but escaped. Entering the hangar, the Neo Mega hijacked an E-frame and was eventually blown out into space.
