Guests enter the queue as "observation team members" and are told by overhead announcements that they must pass the "level 1 and level 2 dermatopic purification screens" to enter the body-probe vehicle.

In the queue and loading area, announcements are made about details of the four bays.

Guests learn that their "LGS 2050"-type probe vehicle weighs approximately 26 tons, but once miniaturized, weighs less than a drop of water.

The guests' vehicle, Bravo 229, moves from the bay to the miniaturization room, where technicians focus a "particle reducer" on the ship. Their ship and crew mates are shrunk and sent under the subject's skin. White blood cells are seen on their way to destroy the splinter.

The guests arrive at the splinter, meeting with Dr. Cynthia Lair. She begins to take a cell count when she is accidentally pulled into a capillary. Captain Braddock follows her into the vein, entering an unauthorized area. The captain steers Bravo past the heart and into the right ventricle. The guests enter the lungs where the doctor is being attacked by a white blood cell.

The captain uses his lasers to free the doctor. By now, the ship is very low on power. The doctor suggests that they use the brain's energy to recharge the ship. Passing the heart's left atrium, the ship goes through the artery to get to the brain. A neuron contacts the ship, allowing it to regain power and de-miniaturize outside of the body.
