In Hong Kong, Raymond Bishop has been called in to investigate a joint operation between Interpol and the International Temporal Enforcement Agency, which has yet to produce results after roughly a month. Prostitutes are being kidnapped and a Type-7 shipment has been tracked to the city, the incidents believed to be connected. After an ambassador's wife goes missing a risky plan is put into motion, Hui Lan going undercover. In spite of multiple precautions, Hui is kidnapped by Mrs. Earth, who initially employed chloroform rather than Type-7. Later in Earth's hideout, it is revealed she's been turning the prostitutes into high-end slaves using Type-7 Chips for sales purposes. Hui's Immunity Ring protects her from a Type-7 injection while the joint task force, along with the Hong Kong Special Duties Unit, roll in for the rescue. A firefight breaks out, the chipped whores programmed with basic combat tactics, but Miranda waits to use the Freeze-Key until she knew Hui was safe. When the device is activated the fight ends, the kidnapped women all rescued and both Earth and her accomplice arrested. The Hong Kong police, on orders from the government, take charge of Earth, leaving the ITEA with no answers on to who her supplier was.
