Carrier Attacks the Sleeping Yamato
Cadets Wildstar and Venture return from their trip and are summoned to the Yamato, noticing that it looks brand new from underneath. When they board, they find themselves inside a newly modernized space ship, commanded by Captain Avatar. Wildstar is eager to fight the Gamilons, but Avatar says that the ship's primary mission is to travel to Iscandar and return with the Cosmo DNA.
Wildstar and Venture have little time to look around, however, as Gamilon planes attack the ship. Even though the ship isn't prepared for an attack, Avatar orders it powered up, telling Wildstar to take over the weapons system and Venture to take helm control. As the ship breaks free of the Earth's surface, Wildstar aims the ship's main guns at the carrier. Avatar fires the guns, destroying the carrier.
On Gamilon, Leader Desslok chastises his generals for their inability to distinguish an underground city from a space battleship. There are 364 days remaining before life on Earth is extinct.
