- "...And we're losing Jaegers faster than we can build them."
- —L. Taylor to Stacker Pentecost
Five years after the downfall of the Jaeger Program, L. Taylor, L. Cole and several other members of the United Nations hold a meeting with Stacker Pentecost, Tendo Choi and Herc Hansen at the Anchorage Shatterdome. Taylor notes that the evolution of the Kaiju has made the Jaeger Program, which the representatives of the United Nations consider "dead", an infeasible option of defense.
Though Pentecost argues for a final chance to attack the Kaiju, after Cole makes it clear that they're abandoning the Jaeger Program for the Anti-Kaiju Wall, Taylor announces that what remains of the program will be decommissioned after the eight months of funding they left to Pentecost runs out.
Days after the Mutavore attack in Sydney, Taylor is interviewed by a news station. He reports that civilians are being moved to Safe Zones and away from the coastlines. When the reporter notes that only the "rich and powerful" are being safeguarded, Taylor continues to insist that the Wall of Life is still their best option and refuses to comment further on the matter.
