D minus 253 days: The Cosmo Tiger fighters scout ahead of the Argo to take out the Gamilon advance – but this also takes them away from the Argo, and General Lysis teleports a fleet of bombers directly into the Argo’s immediate area to attack. The great ship is almost destroyed, and Wildstar and the Cosmo Tigers are unable to help in time. Lysis launches his final weapon – the drill missile. The projectile runs true, lodging itself in the Argo’s wave motion gun and burrowing deep into the ship, where it will detonate once it reaches a central location. The Star Force fighter squadron is forced to return to base to refuel, leaving the ship completely defenseless until Sandor and IQ-9 reverse the drill’s direction, firing it back out of the wave motion gun’s tube and destroying the Gamilon fleet – with the exception of Lysis’ command ship. After delivering a final ultimatum to Captain Avatar, Lysis launches his last attack.
