The episode opens with Tatiana's mother reading a letter she received from a vanship courrier.

Claus and Tatiana are shot down by the Urbanus. They see the Silvana crash in the Dragon's Fangs, then crash land in a desert. While their vanship is not too badly damage, it lacks enough Claudia to get airborne again.

In Disith, migrants seek to escape dropping temperatures by boarding Migration Capsules bound for Anatoray. However, the capsules are not very safe and one collapses while attempting takeoff.

Claus attempts to wrangle a racing bird and ride it out of the desert, but fails.

The fleet of Disith Battle Ships invading Anatoray occupies Norkia.

Claus modifies the vanship engine so that it can use the Claudia they have to generate a few feet of lift. Claus and Tatiana head for a supply cache, only to find it in Disith hands. They are briefly taken prisoner, but the Disith abandon them when the Migration Capsules begin landing nearby. When the Disith reach them, however, they discover that none of the refugees survived. Dunya Scheer fires her rifle into the air in grief.
