[[Beck]] was a mechanic who worked at [[Able|Able's]] [[Able's garage|garage]] with his friends [[Bodhi]], [[Zed]], and [[Mara]]. He enjoyed 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 enjoy some recreational time together in a friendly disc game, a military battalion led by [[General Tesler]] arrives and takes over their playing field. Tesler informs the people of [[Argon City]] that the city is now under occupation. When a giant statue of [[Clu 2|Clu]] is dropped in the center of the game field, Bodhi protests, and, to Beck’s horror, is derezzed by a guard. Deciding to fight back against the Occupation, Beck uses Bodhi's recoding tool on his disc, modifying his light suit to look similar to [[Tron|Tron's]]. He then scales the statue, removes its head, and drops a light grenade inside the hollow frame to destroy it.

A guard reports the statue’s destruction to Tesler, along with the observation that the culprit looked like Tron. Clu enters and denies this claim, saying that Tron is dead. Tesler responds by sending his second-in-command, [[Paige]], to find the masked renegade.

Beck dispatches two of the [[Black Guard]] that pursued him after the statue’s destruction, but is confronted by Paige, resulting in a protracted fight. Boarding a light copter, Beck overpowers its pilot, but damages the flight controls in the process. He is then forced to abandon the craft to Paige and bails out over the [[Outlands]].

Repairing an abandoned [[Light Crawler|light crawler]], Beck heads for home, but finds himself pursued by a [[Tron|masked program]] with red circuits. Unable to escape, he is soon overpowered and captured. He then awakens to discover that he is being held captive in a large chamber; his captor, still masked, approaches to interrogate him. The program challenges Beck's activities; Beck is defiant, assuming that his captor is loyal to Clu, and secretly starts using the recoder to disable his bindings. Once free, he grabs his disc and lunges at the stranger, who was anticipating this and easily dodges Beck’s attack. Their verbal exchange continues throughout the fight, and when Beck expresses determination to fight Clu no matter what it takes, the stranger unmasks and reveals himself to be Tron, saying that Beck was right about one thing: “I’m not dead.”

Tron explains how he was programmed to defend the [[Grid]], and how he was betrayed by Clu. He shows Beck the horrific injuries that prevent him from taking back the Grid now, and tries 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, is consumed with self-doubt. Despite Tron's entreaties, Beck declines the offer and returns to Argon City.

Plot Synopsis

Beck was a mechanic who worked at Able's garage with his friends Bodhi, Zed, and Mara. He enjoyed 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 City 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 Tron was dead. 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 and was forced to abandon the craft to Paige and bail out over the Outlands.

Repairing an abandoned light crawler, Beck headed for home, but found himself pursued by a masked program with red circuits. 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 was defiant, assuming that his captor was loyal to Clu, and 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.

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.

Able pulled Beck aside momentarily to warn him against making waves under the new, dangerous conditions, but when they stepped out of Able's office they were horrified to see Tesler already rounding up programs -- Zed and Mara among them -- for the Games. Despite Able's warning, Beck secretly donned his Tron disguise again and pursued the light rail transporting his captive friends to the Coliseum.
