The Martians bombard Shinawara with meteor attacks as Slaine leaves the area. Inaho and his friends meet up with a United Forces of Earth (UFE) squad led by Captain Magbaredge as they prepare to evacuate the area by sea. Asseylum decides to reveal her true form in private to Inaho and asks him to help her contact her father in hopes of stopping the war between Earth and the Vers Empire. Soon, the military finds themselves attacked by another Martian Knight named Vlad, using a Kataphract with a giant beam sword that can cut through anything while providing a defense against explosives and most projectiles. The military holds it back with AP rounds while Inaho, Calm and Inko smash a large shipping container into the enemy Kataphract's head. Vlad decides to retreat as Magbaredge's ship, the Watdatsumi, arrives with reinforcements. With Vlad gone, Magbaredge takes the opportunity to evacuate everybody onto the Watdatsumi.
