Revolving Defense: Asteroid Belt

Star BlazersD minus 354 days: Disgraced by his retreat from Pluto, Colonel Ganz tries to regain Desslock’s favor by mounting a last-ditch offensive against the Argo – and given the Argo’s extremely vulnerable state following the withering series of attacks at Pluto, a Gamilon victory isn’t inconceivable. Sandor warns Captain Avatar that a straightforward fight will only result in the Star Force’s destruction. With no alternatives, the Argo takes shelter in a nearby asteroid belt, where Avatar hopes to buy enough time to conduct thorough repairs. Sandor concocts an unconventional camouflage scheme, in which asteroid fragments from the belt will be drawn against the hull of the Argo. Though the disguise offers a brief period of disguise, Ganz soon figures out where his prey is. But this too has been anticipated by Avatar and Sandor, who have another strategy to defend the battered Argo from the Gamilons.
