Shiro is remorseful after having killed Captain Carter, and he takes out his emotions on Hercules and Lee, but the two manage to make him laugh, and they all make up. Meanwhile, Orion is glad to be rid of Carter, his joy is interrupted when the crew find the Skull. They decide not to attack, expecting X-Bomber to come.
The Skull contacts X-Bomber at last, asking which one of them wears the special token, and that they should be transferred to the Skull. Dr. Benn, suspecting another Alliance trap, refuses. Lamia shows Shiro how her pendant resists a laser. Lamia asks Shiro to take her to the Skull. She understands Dr. Benn's concern, but she wants to learn the secret of the Skull. Shiro, hesitant at first, agrees. A space chopper launches from X-Bomber. Dr. Benn and Hercules are annoyed by Shiro's direct disobeying of orders and risking Lamia's life. Dr. Benn orders X-Bomber to follow them at a distance.
Back on Makara's battlecruiser, they notice the Shuttle craft launch from X-Bomber heading for the Skull. Makara orders for them to stand by, but allow them to rendezvous with the Skull. Lamia wonders if the Skull was the ship that took her to Mars as a baby as they reach the ship. Makara orders the drone craft carriers launched to attack the Skull. Lamia and Shiro stop near the Skull and are introduced to it's Captain, who identifies himself as Captain Halley. Halley then promptly blasts Lamia with a laser gun, to confirm she is indeed the one with the pendant. He says the pendant absorbs the energy he blasted into her body. He requests Lamia come on board, Shiro makes Lamia promise she will return to them.
Orion in the drone craft launches the Fighters to attack the Skull as Lamia, donning a spacesuit, transfers to the Skull. However the attack interrupts their transfer and knocks Lamia into space. Shiro pursues her while Halley opens fire on the fighters. Orion orders Lamia to be captured, which one of the fighters are able to do by grabbing hold of her with a clamp.
Shiro is able to free Lamia from the fighter, but more pursue them and they are only saved when Lee arrives in LegTrax and destroys the fighters. Lamia and Shiro return to X-Bomber and are transferred to sickbay. X-Bomber transfers power to its shields and uses the main laser blast to destroy the fights, and the opens fire on the carriers. Only Orion's drone craft is able to escape. Lee returns to X-Bomber.
Back on X-Bomber, Hercules punches Shiro for endangering Lamia's life while she is tended to in sickbay. Lee is more sympathetic to Shiro than Hercules. Dr. Benn announces that Lamia will be alright as Kirara carries her to her room. Back in her room, Lamia dreams of Halley, hearing him telling her not to die, before waking to see Shiro (bandaged from his punch from Hercules) visiting her. Kirara angrily throws him out of her room, as Shiro states "this just isn't my day."

Earth Defence ForcesEdit
- Imperial Battlecruiser
- Imperial Carrier Craft
- Imperial Fighters
- Stock footage from Scramble X-Bomber, The Mysterious Ship, Skull and Our Mortal Enemy is Captain Carter is used.
- Some music from the Japanese version is used in the English dub, mainly just Hercules' guitar track at the beginning.
- In the French version, during the first half of the Episode, Shiro is voiced by Frédéric Pieretti. But after the commercial break, Éric Legrand resumes voicing Shiro.
- It seems the sound editor was confused where exactly Orion was during the attack as the interior sound of the drone craft is the sound used for the Fighters until X-Bomber opens fire on the Drone craft, where it is made perfectly clear that's where he resides.
