The Terra Day attack describes a BeiTech assault on Heimdall Jump Station on Terra Day - August 16th, 2575.


On August 11th, 2575, Nik Malikov is threatened via whisperNET into helping with smuggling a biotainer aboard the Heimdall. The request sent by BeiTech operative Sam Maginot, who has hijacked the whisperNET account of Sam Wheaton. Maginot threatens to expose Hanna Donnelly's drug exchanges with him should Nik and the House of Knives not comply.

Once onboard, the BeiTech squad commander Travis Falk eliminates anyone who might get in his way. However, they're unable to capture Hanna Donnelly, Nik Malikov, Ella Malikova and Isaac Grant. The four fight together to save the wormhole, the Kerenza IV survivors aboard the incoming ship Hypatia, and their own lives.
