Salka Pal-Mir, the prime minister of Eretz, is suffering from an acute myocardial infarction with papillary muscle necrosis. Even though certain drugs can temporarily restore Pal-Mir's vitality between attacks, her syndrome requires a heart transplant. Unable to locate a suitable donor, Dr. Rudy Wells plans to perform the first full-scale bionic heart implant. Steve Austin escorts her across the country as her body guard to the surgery which is successful making her the first bionic heart recipient. Oscar Goldman comments that she will likely outlive Steve.
