Claus and Lavie take a military vanship and attempt to engage the Starfish assaulting the Silvana. Though they have no prior combat experience and thus little effect in the dogfight, Claus's flying attracts the interest of Dio Eraclea. Dio and Lucciola launch from the Guild Presence Ship in their personal Starfish so that Dio can toy with Claus. Claus tries to shoot Dio down, but Dio is a superior pilot; and when he runs out of bullets, Lavie suffers a red out and is unable to reload them.
Finally, the time limit of the operation passes and all of the Starfish return to the Guild Presence Ship as it moves out of combat range of the Silvana.
Tatiana harshly criticizes Claus's flying, saying that he should not be allowed to fly a military vanship, and says that Lavie is worthless as a navi if she has red outs.
The Silvana holds a dinner party to celebrate their victory over the Guild. Afterwards, however, Lavie breaks down crying.
