Courage: The Death Of Captain Hijikata!

Star BlazersThe Earth and Comet Empire fleets mass at Saturn for the decisive battle, but the initial engagements end with heavy Earth casualties – the Comet Empire’s shock cannons are able to literally vibrate the Earth destroyers to pieces before the EDF ships can get close enough to use their Wave Motion guns. Gideon orders a retreat to Saturn, and the Comet Empire pursues, decimating the Earth fleet as they advance. Gideon takes a chance on ordering his ships to hide inside Saturn’s outermost ring, giving Wildstar and the Argo time to attack the enemy from behind. The rear attack forces the Empire ships into the ice ring, where their next attack backfires, giving the Andromeda, Argo and the other Earth ships a window of opportunity to strike back. But the victory is short-lived when the White Comet itself appears, having warped into the solar system. The Argo is among its first targets, receiving damage so critical that Wildstar orders all hands to abandon ship.
