The raiders present themselves to their master, Galg, a horrifically mutated form of plankton. Galg's sensors have detected the Atom's presence in his citadel, thus the raiders are tasked with searching for the microscopic intruder. The Atom follows Galg into another chamber, however, anticipating such an action, Galg...
