Runners are contracted to record activity at an exclusive party and gather a secret list of present and past attendees. They are welcome to sneak or social their way in, but are not to disrupt the normal flow of the party as the Johnson wants as much blackmail info as possible. Agreeing, the runners chase down some leads on some of the party goers. Breaking into the apartment of a woman who be attending, the runners find a paper invitation that includes the pickup location of the event. Tracking another party-goer to a club, the team socializes to varying degrees of success. While Jagganoth distracts the mark with his nova-hot dance moves, Ice Hawk is able to stomach seducing the woman invited to the party with some Japanese poetry and convinces her not to go. Her friend, who is also invited, is convinced by Wan to bring her along in her pocket.

Once aboard, Wan is able to get a layout of the party boat and steals some uniforms for the rest of the team. After climbing up and disguising themselves, the team fans out and eventually discover a server room. Breaking in, the team is able to gather a horde of information about the party. Looking at some of the info, Wan feels uneasy about letting the events go on as planned as it looks like they turn violent. After some internal disagreement within the group, they decide to stay and watch what occurs. They find 2 woman tied up in a storage area, one of which Wan masks herself as to get a closer look as to what happens next. When the party time arrives, their host, a centaur named Stelio, frees both Wan and the other woman, telling them to "Have a good time". Wan is compelled to start dancing with the other members of the party while the other runners wait for the other shoe to drop. Sure enough, it does and the party devolves into a sea of debauchery and violence, including the tied-up girl taking a bite out of someone. Huskarl leaps into action, bisecting the centaur while the others do crowd control. Discovering that the centaur and some of the others are infected, the team kill them and leave the others to their own devices. Having blown the mission, the team decides to sell the information to the press as it makes for a fairly juicy story.
