Following the appearance of Maestro Delphine Eraclea at Sophia's coronation ceremony, the Silvana heads for the Dragon's Fangs. There, it meets up with the Urbanus, and Sophia returns to the Silvana. The plan is for Silvana and Urbanus, the only two Alliance ships with Claudia Units that are not under Guild control, to ascend to the Grand Stream and capture Exile. They will use acoustic torpedoes to locate objects in the Grand Stream, and Wina Lightning will identify Exile by the sound of its engines using the recording provided by the Disith. They hope to have Exile under their control by the time the operation to liberate the Claudia Units of the Alliance fleet begins on the 13th of Tragos, giving them six days to complete the operation.
