Team Rose is deployed on their stage of the training mission aboard the Sky Patrol, and Amy questions why Nicole made their objective so difficult. Nicole responds that Amy would probably be mad if she took it easy on them, and encourages her and her team to continue their stage of the mission. As she regards the three groups of her teammates-Team Freedom, Team Fighters, and Team Rose-Nicole reflects on the relationship she's cultivated with them. She then thinks back to when she was nothing more than an advanced but formless artificial intelligence inside her handheld computer form.
