D minus 253 days: General Lysis is court-martialed and sentenced to death by a Gamilon military court for the loss of the Ballan base, but is pardoned by Leader Desslok with the provision that his next attempt to destroy the Star Force must succeed. Lysis issues a direct challenge to the Argo for a confrontation in the Rainbow Star Group, which Captain Avatar grudgingly agrees to meet. Lysis musters an enormous fighting force for the decisive battle, including a large scale teleportation system capable of transmitting entire ships across space instantenously. Lysis has also prepared a drill missile specially designed to penetrate the muzzle of the Argo’s wave motion gun and rob the Star Force of its single most effective weapon. As the two forces converge at the Rainbow Star Group, the gradually weakening Avatar hopes that he has chosen his successor wisely.
