Nova gets his first taste of Planetary Recorder for Information Maintenance and Education, or PRIME. PRIME fills Nova in with some back story for the audience, and then is able to show him whatís going on back on Earth. Nova sees the Condor, Powerhouse and Diamondhead attacking the Sphinx. He then sees his father being threatened by the PTA, and lastly he sees his friend Caps, tied to a post in a slowly flooding room.
Nova jets back to Earth and rescues Caps in the nick of time.
Later, as Rich Rider, he hears the incredible story of Caps Uncle Nathan who fell into a dimensional portal and was transformed into a sort of Megaman. He found his way back to Earth and blamed Caps for pushing him into the portal in the first place.
Coming home after some ice cream, Rich finds Megaman on his front lawn, with Caps in one hand and burnig down the Rider home with the other.
