The bureaucrats have discovered the creation of a new city by renegade Hunter 451, and Arak is sent in to take it out. Clyde is abducted by 451's men to be used as slave labor in excavating the city, and she discovers a forgotten library. Arak attacks and declares that the books should be destroyed in the name of Kortan, which reminds Ramirez of the burning of books in the New World by Spanish conquistadors. Ramirez sets up bombs to seal the library, not realizing that Quentin, 451, and Arak are fighting inside. Everyone escapes just in time, and the "treasure" is safe.
