Heisenberg, the "morphing" Biot, reveals that machines have an unsuspected ability to care when the Phantom races against time to prevent a deadly explosion in CyberVille.
The Phantom and Graft suspect that a nuclear reactor has been placed in the heart of CyberVille, and go to the Entrance Pavilion to investigate. Graft and several construction Biots take them by surprise. A battle ensues. The Phantom fires at the Biots and Graft, and fells a female "Riot"- who bleeds! Other construction "Riots" call an ambulance, revealing that there are humans masquerading as Biots who labor at the construction site.
The Phantom goes to the hospital where the injured "Biot" has been taken. Her name is Mallory, and she is human. She tells how the animal shelter her family ran was destroyed by Maximum, Inc. so that CyberVille could be built. Mallory was reduced to working as a Biot to earn credits to move to another city-state. She also tells how some Biots have taken on human-like characteristics, as they become "self-aware." When the Phantom learns that the reactor in CyberVille has been damaged by Graft's blast, and may irradiate the workers inside, he goes there to save the humans.
Sagan, who has gone undercover in a Biot disguise and is within CyberVille, is captured by Max, Jr. The Phantom, with the help of Heisenberg, sets her free. In the reactor room, Heisenberg, the Phantom and Sagan fight Graft before the reactor explodes. Thanks to the ingenuity of Heisenberg, and his abilities to change his shape, the Phantom and his allies flee from the reactor's core before the destruction occurs. Damage to human- and non-human- life is averted.
