D minus 280 days: The Argo is caught in the gravitational vortex of a collapsing star. As if this isn’t a bad enough position, an enormous Gamilon fleet commanded by General Lysis closes in from the rear. As the vortex sucks the Argo’s energy reserves dry, the survival prospects for the Star Force look bleak.

Note: The introductory shot of Volgar is an rare example where the Japanese characters for his name have not been covered by an English subtitle. Also, General Lysis’ log entry gives the date as January 7 – though why the Gamilons would be using the Julian calendar is unknown!
