"Kiss your wi-fi, your coffee maker, and your top-secret satellite feed goodbye."
"And the Australian site goes online."
"We'll have roughly six minutes to patch a back end into the network."
Phil Coulson and Skye[src]

The Infiltration into Laura Creek Station was an attempt by S.H.I.E.L.D. to locate the Kree City.

Background

"Everything we've been doing, it all leads here. Our job: find it before anyone else."
Phil Coulson[src]

S.H.I.E.L.D. goes after the Kree City

Due to the effects of GH.325 he was injected during his resurrection, Phil Coulson suffered from hypergraphia, making him carve mysterious symbols on any surface he could find. As the carvings became more and more frequent, Skye figured out that they represented a map[5] and, after the Attack on Hank Thompson, S.H.I.E.L.D. realized that they were looking for a city.[6]

Therefore, S.H.I.E.L.D. decided to use satellite feed to map the Earth and find something which fitted with the pattern designed by the strange symbols. However, HYDRA leader Daniel Whitehall, who was in possession of the Obelisk and received the assistance of Calvin Zabo, was looking for the city as well.[3]

Infiltration

"The satellite network we need to map the Earth and find the city is controlled by the U.S. Air Force facility at Kaena Point, Oahu, and it's too heavily guarded to infiltrate. Which is why we came to Australia instead. There's a small station here that comes online whenever Kaena Point's feed goes down."
Phil Coulson[src]
Coulson identified the satellite network S.H.I.E.L.D. needed to find the city. Since the Kaena Point Air Force Base in which it was located was impregnable, Coulson devised a plan involving Skye and Antoine Triplett to take down the satellite feed in the base, which would power up the Australian Laura Creek Station which S.H.I.E.L.D. could infiltrate. The S.H.I.E.L.D. team flew the Bus to Australia and entered the Laura Creek Station. They waited for the satellite feed of the Kaena Point Air Force Base to be taken down, but once it was done, they realized that HYDRA had been ahead of them, capturing the facility's staff and jamming S.H.I.E.L.D.'s communications.

Phil Coulson ordered Leo Fitz to untie the station's crew. Coulson made his way to escort them to safety while Fitz and Antoine Triplett went to install a transceiver which would help Fitz locate the city they were looking for. Triplett shot two HYDRA operatives which attacked them, but he was shot in the shoulder by another enemy who was killed by Coulson. Calvin Zabo, posing as the staff's doctor, offered to tend to Triplett's wounds.

Calvin Zabo reveals who he actually is

Zabo, who was actually collaborating with HYDRA, secretly aggravated Triplett's wounds and revealed that he knew Coulson's name, prompting Coulson to threaten him with his gun. However, Zabo forced Coulson and Fitz to hand over their guns if they wanted to ensure Triplett's survival. Coulson then confronted Zabo about his collaboration with Daniel Whitehall, to which Zabo replied that Whitehall was merely a means to an end so he could get a chance to see his daughter.

Coulson and Zabo further discussed about the Diviner and the power contained within. Zabo then explained to Coulson how he should proceed to save Coulson, which gave Zabo enough time to escape. As Zabo left the station, Fitz and Coulson successfully saved him and took him back to the Zephyr One.[3]

Aftermath

City Found

S.H.I.E.L.D. locates the Kree City

"My dad, Ward, the Obelisk, the city, it's all messed up. And I just I can't shake this vibe that something really bad is about to happen."
Skye[src]

Despite the HYDRA interference, Leo Fitz was able to successfully install the transceiver S.H.I.E.L.D. needed to locate the city they were looking for. The data were uploaded into the Zephyr One, where Skye analyzed it. Thanks to that, S.H.I.E.L.D. was able to locate the city.[3]

The team also informed Skye that they had met her father Calvin Zabo in the Laura Creek Station, leaving her puzzled and with the feeling that something wrong was on the verge of happening.[7]
