Kouji and Ikumi talk Yuki out of his tantrum and convince him to stay with the Lift Ship. Meanwhile, back on Earth, the guys responsible for this mess are talking things over. The loss of Hyperion is dismissed as a minor concern; more troubling is the fact that the captain of the Blue Impulse ""drill ship"" has had a total nervous breakdown and is now in a padded cell.
The Ryvius crew performs repairs, but morale is low. ""Wanted"" posters for Airs Blue are widely distributed, but he still manages to escape capture. Juli is struggling with her new responsibilities, and, oddly enough, misses Airs Blue. Her first proposed reform--doing away with the ""unlimited points"" status completely--is soundly rejected by the bridge crew. That'll come back to haunt them.
Another enemy ship, the Dicastia (with an all-female crew!), attacks the Ryvius with a new strategy; using a multi-part Vital Guarder, they surround the Ryvius with a gravity-sphere, intent on crushing it.
