Star BlazersWildstar heeds the advice of both Captain Gideon and Desslock, launching a two-pronged attack on the Comet Empire headquarters. The Black Tigers attack from the air, while the Argo – with IQ-9 at the helm – plunges into the ocean to strike the vulnerable bottom of the comet. The attack drives the Comet Empire back into orbit, and Wildstar orders a relentless pursuit. A pitch battle is fought between the Black Tigers and the Empire’s stingray fighters, while the Argo takes up a position directly beneath the Empire. Sandor points out a fighter launch door on the lowest point of the comet, and Wildstar forms a team to board the Empire and sabotage their ship from within. Knox and Sandor join him as he flies directly into the Empire’s launch bay, where a close-quarters battle ensues between an Argo fighter squadron and the Empire’s fighters inside their own home base. Sandor is injured during the mission, losing his bionic leg, while Knox and Wildstar sabotage the ship’s main reactor. The Argo crew watches as the comet disintegrates – and then as a huge battleship emerges from the debris, commanded by Zordar and still more than capable of destroying Earth.
