- Original Air Date: 11/5/2011
At Kartoffel, Fam Fan Fan, Giselle Collette, and Millia plan to capture the Silvius. Dio Eraclea provides them with a blurry photo of it, from which Giselle is able to deduce its layout and capabilities.
Johann and Fritz locate the Silvius and inform the Sky Pirates of its location. Millia and Teddy accompany them in Dio's vanship, though Dio refuses to allow Millia to act as his navi because that job is reserved for Lucciola.
The Sky Pirates begin the operation to capture the Silvius. They use decoys to make it change course, then attach balloons to it to slow its speed. Black paint is sprayed over the portholes, and bubbles are used to deafen the listening post. However, they are forced to break off when Tatiana Wisla flies out in her military vanship and begins firing on them. The Silvius begins escaping over Grand Lake.
Fam and Giselle fly their Vespa into the Silvius to attempt to disable its Claudia engine from within, but become trapped when the Silvius submerges in Grand Lake. Once they have been captured, the Silvius surfaces again, allowing Dio and Millia to land. Tatiana tells Fam and Giselle that she will release them in exchange for 15 Ades Battle Ships. Fam accepts, saying that she will steal them.

- In chess evaluation, a dubious move is a move that the annotator believes to be objectively bad, albeit hard to refute. The symbol used by annotators is "?!". Alternatively, this may denote a move that is truly bad, but sets up an attractive trap.
