The HRL's operation against Celestial Being continues. Allelujah again becomes disoriented by his proximity to Soma, resulting in the capture of the Kyrios. Tieria arrives to find the Kyrios within a transport vessel, but the Virtue is overwhelmed as he attempts to destroy the escaping vessel. Meanwhile, Allelujah's alter-ego, Hallelujah, awakens and destroys the transport ship he is in; Soma and Sergei escape before he gets a chance to face them. The battles end in a Pyrrhic victory for both sides; Tieria has revealed one of Celestial Being's greatest secrets: the Gundam Nadleeh, while the HRL loses many mobile suits in return. With the near capture of the Kyrios and Ptolemaios' close escape, Celestial Being is shaken to the core with the majority of its members saddened by the experience.
