Episode 14, Quantum Troopers. The Red Hammer cartel is in contact with a race of alien benefactors. The Keeper on the Moon, thought to have been contained, has sent a quantum pulse throughout the solar system and now an asteroid is on an intercept course with Earth. The cartel issues an ultimatum: close down Quantum Corps or else. Lt. John Winger leads a detachment to meet the asteroid in deep space and use ANAD to consume enough of the rockpile to make it divertible by other means. But unknown to Winger, a saboteur is embedded with the detachment. ANAD has been corrupted and the effort may fail. The nanotroopers find they can only save Earth from catastrophe by saving ANAD itself.
