Original material

Venetian Blind Part One

On a boat in Venice Tito Meira, head of the Mafia' Venetian operations, meets a representative of "the Family" who tells him they are pleased with his work. But Meira is concerned about Cobra, having unwittingly thrown out two Cobra operatives the previous night even though the representative believes Cobra are fanatics who wouldn't take on the Mafia. Suddenly a Cobra Moray hydrofoil attacks, with the representative being shot down. The Moray then fires missiles, destroying the boat though Meira jumps off in time. As Meira floats a Cobra Trooper tells him Cobra Commander wants him to reconsider his offer.

Later in an office above an ice cream parlour Trent briefs Footloose, Quick Kick, Lady Jaye, Shipwreck and Flint about how Cobra is gunning for the Mafia and ignoring the traditional arrangements the Mafia have with the authorities in their quest for a financial base. He goes on to explain that they have received information about Cobra's next target and a tense Flint asks Trent to tell the others who the source of the information is. The informant suddenly enters the room - it is Destro!
