==Plot==
[[Beck]] works at [[Able]]’s garage with his friends [[Bodhi]], [[Zed]], and [[Mara]]. He enjoys his job, but not as much as the disc games he and his friends would otherwise play.

[[Beck]] is a mechanic who lives and works at [[Able|Able's]] [[Able's garage|garage]] in [[Argon City]] alongside his friends [[Bodhi]], [[Zed]], and [[Mara]]. He enjoys his job, but not as much as the [[Identity Disc|disc]] games he and his friends played on their time off.
  +
  +
As the group of friends enjoyed some recreational time together in a friendly disc game, a military battalion led by [[General Tesler]] arrived and took over their playing field. Tesler informed the people of Argon that the city was now under occupation. When a giant statue of [[Clu 2|Clu]] was dropped in the center of the game field, Bodhi protested, and, to Beck’s horror, was derezzed by a guard. Deciding to fight back against the Occupation, Beck used Bodhi's [[Recoder|recoding tool]] on his disc, modifying his light suit to look similar to [[Tron|Tron's]]. He then scaled the statue, removed its head, and dropped a light grenade inside the hollow frame to destroy it.
  +
  +
A guard reported the statue’s destruction to Tesler, along with the observation that the culprit looked like Tron. Clu entered and denied this claim, saying that he killed Tron himself. Tesler responded by sending his second-in-command, [[Paige]], to find the masked renegade.
  +
  +
Beck dispatched two of the [[Black Guard]] that pursued him after the statue’s destruction, but was confronted by Paige, resulting in a protracted fight. Boarding a light copter, Beck overpowered its pilot, but damaged the flight controls in the process. Restoring them with the recoder, he and Paige, who had managed to board after him, engage in another tussle. Paige has become rather impressed with Beck, suggesting he ought to work for her and they'd be a formidable team; Beck says he doesn't like her boss. He makes a counter offer, but Paige doesn't see a future in going against Clu. She knocks him out the front window, but he snags the landing skid and uses his disc to destroy an engine. He enters from the window and knocks her to the floor, then spots the [[Tron chute]] still on the pilot's back. Putting it on, he abandons the craft to Paige and bails out over the [[Outlands]].

Paige lands the damaged copter in the hanger of [[General Tesler's Ship]]. Tesler is surprised that she doesn't have the Renegade. Paige states that he's good, but he's no Tron, and in any case Clu killed Tron and the Renegade would soon be dead too. Meanwhile, Beck struggles to activate the chute, does so at the last minute and despite the crash landing, avoids shattering himself. The ground starts to crumble from his impact crater, and he manages to run ahead of the collapse and leap across a crevasse to stable ground.
   
As the group of friends enjoy some recreational time together in a friendly disc game, a military battalion, led by [[General Tessler]], arrives and takes over their playing field. Tessler then informs the people of Argon City that the city is now under occupation. When a giant statue of Clu is dropped in the center of the game field, Bodhi protests and is derezzed by a guard, much to Beck’s horror. Deciding to fight back against the Occupation, Beck uses his recoder on his disc to modify his light suit to look similar to [[Tron]]’s. He then scales the statue, removes its head, and drops a light grenade inside to destroy it.

Repairing an abandoned [[Light Crawler|light crawler]], Beck heads for home, but found himself pursued by a [[Tron|masked program]] with red circuits on a [[snowmobile]]. Unable to escape, he was soon overpowered. Awakening from a stun charge, he found himself bound hand and foot in a large chamber; his captor, still masked, approached to interrogate him. The program challenged Beck's activities; Beck is defiant, eventually relating all the previous happenings that ended with him in the Outlands and why he had done so. Assuming that his captor is loyal to Clu, he secretly started using the recoder to disable his bindings. Once free, he grabbed his disc and lunged at the stranger, who had been anticipating this and easily dodged Beck’s attack. Their verbal exchange continued throughout the fight, and when Beck expressed determination to fight Clu no matter what it took, the stranger unmasked and revealed himself to be Tron, saying that Beck was right about one thing: “I’m not dead.

Tron explained how he was programmed to defend the [[Grid]], and how he was betrayed by Clu. He showed Beck the horrific injuries preventing him from taking back the Grid, and tried to convince Beck to join him and become the next Tron in a fight against the Occupation; but Beck, faced with the Grid's legendary hero, was consumed with self-doubt.

Putting away the snowmobile baton in his locker back at the garage, Beck is summoned downstairs by Able and is greeted by Paige and a troop of guards, who confronts the mechanics with a recording of the Renegade's activities.

After repairing an abandoned light crawler, Beck heads for home, but finds himself pursued by a masked program. Unable to escape, he is soon overpowered and captured. He then awakens to discover that he is being held captive in a large chamber and that same program approaches to interrogate him. As the stranger proceeds to question him, Beck secretly starts using his recoder to to disable his bindings. Once free of his binds he grabs his disc and lunges at the stranger, who was anticipating this and dodges Beck’s attack. He then knocks Beck’s disc to the ground and continues to fend him off. Their verbal exchange continues throughout the fight, and eventually the stranger simply unmasks himself, saying that Beck was right about one thing. “I’m not dead, he says as his light suit and disc change to reveal that he is actually Tron.

Beck and his friends discussed the Renegade the next day at work; Mara approved of the masked program's activities, but Zed believed sedition would just cause trouble. About to go out for fun, Able pulled Beck aside to his office momentarily to warn him against making waves under the new, dangerous conditions.  They hear an alarm and run to the entrance of the garage, were horrified to see Tesler already rounding up programs -- Zed and Mara among them -- for the Games; Able tells him there's nothing they can do. Beck, however, secretly dons his Tron disguise and pursued the [[Light Rail|light rail]] transporting his captive friends to the [[Coliseum (Argon City)|Coliseum]]. Jumping onto the train, he encountered a [[Unmasked Guardsman|Black Guard]], who viciously defended the train. Beck gained the upper hand and appeared ready to derez the Guardsman, but instead detached the last car from the train and was left behind with it, leaving the rapidly disappearing soldier confused at why he was spared. The car Beck detached turned out to be empty, and he activated his lightcycle to chase the train again; getting ahead of it, he breaks one of the light beam's supports and causes the train to derail. The Black Guard takes him by surprise as he searched the fallen cars for his friends, but grateful that Beck spared him, he leads him to the right car instead of capturing him. The two programs freed the prisoners and watched them escape. However, General Tesler arrived, derezzed the Guard for aiding the Renegade, and attacked Beck with his enhanced extendable gauntlets, telling him that he'd never be able to save everybody. During the fight, Beck was able to cut off Tesler's gauntlets, causing him to fall into a light rail beam; the furious general, carried off at high speed, was eventually rescued by Paige.
   
Tron explains how he was programmed to defend the [[Grid]], and how he was betrayed by Clu. He tries to convince Beck to join him and become the next Tron in a fight against the Occupation, but Beck's self doubt has the young program declining at every turn. Beck then returns to Argon City.
+
Beck returns to Tron’s hideout in the Outlands and announced himself ready to undergo training to become the next Tron: he feels that he must. Tron proclaimed that he wasn’t ready, but he would be. Tron then removes his identity disc and separates it into two halves, his light suit switching to his black version, and handing the white half to Beck.  Beck combined the white half of Tron's disc with his black half and puts the combined disc on, acquiring the white outfit Tron had worn in the old days. Beck's new mentor sealed the exchange with the words, “Come, we have a lot of work to do... Tron.
   
Back the garage Beck learns of a new development on the workshop floor. He heads downstairs to find a small group of guards and Paige are in the garage showing the workers a recording of Beck as Tron, and requesting that this rogue program be handed over. Tron is dubbed the Renegade since the army doesn’t believe him to actually be Tron. Paige then informs them that the games will be coming to Argon and until the imposter is turned in, “volunteers” for the games will be rounded up.

Beck dons his black Tron guise and pursues the light rail being used to transport his captive friends. He jumps onto the rail and fights a Black Guard. Beck gains the upper hand and appears ready to derez the Guardsman, but instead breaks the connection of the last car, leaving the soldier confused at why he was spared.

Beck's Beginning is the premiere episode of TRON: Uprising.

PlotEdit

Beck is a mechanic who lives and works at Able's garage in Argon City alongside his friends Bodhi, Zed, and Mara. He enjoys his job, but not as much as the disc games he and his friends played on their time off.

As the group of friends enjoyed some recreational time together in a friendly disc game, a military battalion led by General Tesler arrived and took over their playing field. Tesler informed the people of Argon that the city was now under occupation. When a giant statue of Clu was dropped in the center of the game field, Bodhi protested, and, to Beck’s horror, was derezzed by a guard. Deciding to fight back against the Occupation, Beck used Bodhi's recoding tool on his disc, modifying his light suit to look similar to Tron's. He then scaled the statue, removed its head, and dropped a light grenade inside the hollow frame to destroy it.

A guard reported the statue’s destruction to Tesler, along with the observation that the culprit looked like Tron. Clu entered and denied this claim, saying that he killed Tron himself. Tesler responded by sending his second-in-command, Paige, to find the masked renegade.

Beck dispatched two of the Black Guard that pursued him after the statue’s destruction, but was confronted by Paige, resulting in a protracted fight. Boarding a light copter, Beck overpowered its pilot, but damaged the flight controls in the process. Restoring them with the recoder, he and Paige, who had managed to board after him, engage in another tussle. Paige has become rather impressed with Beck, suggesting he ought to work for her and they'd be a formidable team; Beck says he doesn't like her boss. He makes a counter offer, but Paige doesn't see a future in going against Clu. She knocks him out the front window, but he snags the landing skid and uses his disc to destroy an engine. He enters from the window and knocks her to the floor, then spots the Tron chute still on the pilot's back. Putting it on, he abandons the craft to Paige and bails out over the Outlands.

Paige lands the damaged copter in the hanger of General Tesler's Ship. Tesler is surprised that she doesn't have the Renegade. Paige states that he's good, but he's no Tron, and in any case Clu killed Tron and the Renegade would soon be dead too. Meanwhile, Beck struggles to activate the chute, does so at the last minute and despite the crash landing, avoids shattering himself. The ground starts to crumble from his impact crater, and he manages to run ahead of the collapse and leap across a crevasse to stable ground.

Repairing an abandoned light crawler, Beck heads for home, but found himself pursued by a masked program with red circuits on a snowmobile. Unable to escape, he was soon overpowered. Awakening from a stun charge, he found himself bound hand and foot in a large chamber; his captor, still masked, approached to interrogate him. The program challenged Beck's activities; Beck is defiant, eventually relating all the previous happenings that ended with him in the Outlands and why he had done so. Assuming that his captor is loyal to Clu, he secretly started using the recoder to disable his bindings. Once free, he grabbed his disc and lunged at the stranger, who had been anticipating this and easily dodged Beck’s attack. Their verbal exchange continued throughout the fight, and when Beck expressed determination to fight Clu no matter what it took, the stranger unmasked and revealed himself to be Tron, saying that Beck was right about one thing: “I’m not dead.”

Tron explained how he was programmed to defend the Grid, and how he was betrayed by Clu. He showed Beck the horrific injuries preventing him from taking back the Grid, and tried to convince Beck to join him and become the next Tron in a fight against the Occupation; but Beck, faced with the Grid's legendary hero, was consumed with self-doubt. Despite Tron's entreaties, Beck declined the offer and returned to Argon City.

Putting away the snowmobile baton in his locker back at the garage, Beck is summoned downstairs by Able and is greeted by Paige and a troop of guards, who confronts the mechanics with a recording of the Renegade's activities. Paige informed them that Tesler was bringing the Games to Argon and that until the imposter was turned in, “volunteers" would be rounded up to compete.
