The Bebop crew runs into a modern day Robin Hood who has designs on thwarting the taxation practices of an unyielding government, whether or not there is a method to their madness. The crew wiggles out of that debacle right into the crossfire of a Dragon Head rivalry in which their old friend the Scorpion re-surfaces for a little blackmail and kidnapping.
However, Scorpion may be more than he or the Bebop crew knows, and who he is may make him a target for the Dragon Head syndicate. Back in the doldrums of bounty hunting, Ed's attempt at retro-fitting a nearby satellite with a receiver that enables the Bebop to monitor bounty activity more closely ends in that satellite exploding - and begins another Bebop adventure.
