After The Hero returns from Iron Arboretum, Click repairs the elevator needed to reach The Council. Afterwards, he realizes he has forgotten his security badge to get into the fortress. After he leaves to go get it, a S.P.U.D. appears in front of the group. The S.P.U.D. ranger introduces himself as "Ranger Knox" of the Space Police. He then states that his comrade left at 0900 (9 AM) to scout out the jungle and hasn't come back. He then explains that he would look for him, but there are barely enough rangers to hold up USF law. The Hero is then sent into Crater Pass to look for the missing S.P.U.D while Sock and Jowee wait for Click by the elevator.
When the Hero goes into the level, they soon find a Baki dressed up as a S.P.U.D. instead of a regular Raposa S.P.U.D.
When the Hero returns with the S.P.U.D. Baki, Jowee then comments on how the ranger he found doesn't look like a ranger. Soon afterwards, Ranger Knox appears and thanks the Hero for their service to the DOT ROT POT USF. He then leaves with the Baki S.P.U.D. which he referred to as "Ranger Marxx". Jowee and Sock then leave to see if Click has arrived yet.
