D minus 255 days: The first Star Force reconnaisance planes reach Ballan, and Wildstar and Conroy barely get away after finding the Gamilon base. The Argo continues toward Ballan, but its arrival has been anticipated – Generals Lysis and Volgar are still planning strategy, but Volgar is appalled at Lysis’ willingness to sacrifice the Gamilon base on Ballan (and all of its personnel) in a plan to crush the Argo with Ballan’s artificial sun. Wildstar, however, suspects that the Argo is flying into a trap, and indeed the ship sustains severe damage in the battle. Captain Avatar, impressed by Wildstar’s handling of the situation, makes the young officer the Argo’s Deputy Captain.
