Prior to the destruction of the Osiris, Thadeus, who doesn't trusts using a drop had no choice but to use one. He recorded a transmission, fearing it'll be the last, he reported a giant army of Sentinels that were digging in the surface to get to Zion. Before long, they were pursued and sustained critical damage. He had Jue make the drop in the Matrix before the Osiris was destroyed with Thadeus hoping that the disk reaches Zion and if it does, it is not too late.
Shortly after the destruction of the Osiris, the crew of the Logos were instructed to recover the drop before it was found. Captain Niobe, a personal friend of Thadeus knew he never used a drop before. They found it at the post office and were able to recover it and watch the transmission before sending it to Zion, via emergency broadcast. Following the broadcast, Jason Lock instructed Niobe to do a full recall. Prior to the meeting and while using the payphones at the airport, Niobe and Ghost rescued Axel of the Vigilant. The evening of the meeting, all the crew members arrived, but the Nebuchadnezzar was late.
The crew of the Logos brought proof from the Osiris about the Sentinel army digging their way down to Zion. Ajax of the Icarus was skeptical before Morpheus and the Nebuchadnezzar crew who were the last to arrive reassured him.
The request was granted by Ballard. But due to the unexpected arrival of Agents, the meeting had to end ahead of schedule. Most of the crews managed to fight their way out and escaped through the sewers, with Neo staying behind to fend off the agents.
In addition, Smith briefly arrived at the area the meeting was held at and anonymously requested to see Neo, in one of the few instances where he didn't use the name "Mr. Anderson" (Neo's Bluepill name), in order to drop off a message to let him know that Neo "set him free". Corrupt got the package before bluntly telling him to leave. Neo also sensed Smith's presence outside, and after looking at the contents of the gift, an unplugged earpiece, sensed the Agents outside and ordered Worm and Coyrupt to leave and warn the others.
