Two years have passed since the Umibozu forcibly disbanded Section 9. In that time, Section 9's members have regrouped, reconstructed their headquarters, and resumed their previous role as a special-forces team specializing in cyber warfare. However, the reformed group operates without the official consent of the Japanese government, because the Special Forces Restriction Bill forced the group to separate. This changes abruptly when a skyscraper containing the Chinese Embassy is stormed by a group of terrorists identifying themselves as the "Individual Eleven". The terrorists quickly take several people hostage and demand that the Prime Minister issue a statement announcing the discontinuation of the Refugee Special Action Policy. The Special Assault Team is summoned to the scene of the standoff, but the situation proves to be more than they can handle, and before long one of the SAT officers is captured. When the terrorists set a deadline for their demands and threaten to execute the hostages, the newly elected Prime Minister, Yoko Kayabuki, takes matters into her own hands and instructs Aramaki to have Section 9 storm the building with the promise that she will reinstate Section 9 if the team can resolve the incident without casualties among the strategically positioned hostages. Section 9 pulls off the operation without a hitch and they become an official law enforcement unit again. The episode ends with the return of the Tachikomas to the ranks of Section 9.
