[ User Planet: ]
Videlle: Wait!! *Runs out of the entrance and takes flight*
*She wobbles dangerously in the air, but sends out a pair of short fuschia-colored energy bursts from her hands to right herself*
Videlle: Wait, you!! *On impulse, forms a crude propeller underneath herself from her ring*
*It gets her up to just behind Perseus, before falling apart and disappearing*
Videlle: I'll agree to your training... *Huff* I want to be of use to the cause. I want to be proud of using my Ring, like I'm proud of using the Kang Zeng Bang Boxing Style.
*She sighs exasperatedly, folds her hands, and bows her head while flying after Perseus*
, teach me how to use my Ring properly.

[ Hei Fon 4, City Sewers: ]
Aisha: *Keeps following the dimly-glistening slime trail*
*She scowls, crinkling her nose at the foul smells all around her*
Aisha: Geez...Ctarl's sewers are no picnic, but I'm surprised no one in our part of Lang City can smell this - Huh?
*Up ahead, she spots a large creature - Its sluglike lower body is the source of the trail, while several plates of armor cover its back and pincers*
*From the front of its body extends a long neck, ended by a suction mouth that is slurping at the sludge off from the path; it four eyestalks bend and stretch to all stare at Aisha*
... *Shivers, hair bristling in disgust* What kind of creature can eat that!?
And what would anyone possibly
want to do with this freakshow monster!!?
*Suddenly, the beast swings its body around to face her - On the inside of its right pincer, a glowing Chinese character becomes visible*
Aisha: "Control"...? *Lowers self* So, a Taoist spell. It looks like the Kei Pirates have had their eye on this...Thing.
Beast: *Gives a gurgling noise, and spits acid out at Aisha*
Aisha: *Narrowly dodges; although her lower pantleg and shoe are burned away, her skin is mostly unharmed*
*She stomps her foot so that it cracks into the stone walkway, securing herself from the slime trail*
*Doing the same with her other foot, Aisha digs in, and leaps at the creature*
Beast: *Prepares to spit more acid at her*

[ Unnamed Star System: ]
*All of the planets are desert wastes*
*Despite this, huge machines seem to be boring into the earth*
*Throughout the four-planet system are bases built atop huge gates; there is also a large space station, in orbit of the second planet out*
*Said space station has four three-dimensional, rhombic branches, built around a central hub of an eight-sided diamond shape*
*Suddenly, this station gets a static-ridden distress call from somewhere out at the edge of the system**zzztch* gent *zzzztch* this is a *zzztch* ent message for *zzztch-zzzzztch* tion Libra, there's *zztch* unknown mobile suit *zzzzzztch* high speed *zzzzzztch* IT'S BACK!! *zzzzzzzzzzzzztch* *klik*
*The commander of the Libra Station rises from his seat - He's A tall, reptilian, or even saurian being, with three horns fanning out from behind his head, a horn on his nose like a ceratopsid, and has dark green scales*
Commander: *Picks up a communicator* This is Rex Do'org. Whomever you are, for the crime of attacking Galactic Government forces, you will be shot down if you approach this station. Deactivate your combat systems and allow yourself to be arrested.
*A pause, and a dull beeping in the control room starts to grow ever faster*
*From behind him emerges a Ctarl-Ctarl female - Her ears are a cream white, and she has short, dark hair with prominent bangs*
???: They're not stopping. I suggest we attack from this range before they can do anymore damage.
Rex: I agree, Thaya. Men, charge up the Massive-Range Cannonry.
*Four large cannons charge up green energy; adjusting by tiny increments to take aim*
Thaya: *Looks down at a screen* Bring up a visual. You need to see this, Rex.
*Up on the screen, a mobile suit appears - Navy blue, it has a screen for a face; a shield and rifle; and the number 014 printed in white block letters on its shield*
Rex: God. It's a Bluemarines Corporation ship. Fire!!
*All of the cannons fire, focusing onto the mobile suit from afar*
*It explodes - Yet the force is so great that every close-up automatically shuts off, due to the blinding brightness*
Thaya: That thing had to be carrying at least three warheads. Probably depleted ether.
Rex: What is the Universe coming to? Now, even Bluemarines has gone rogue.
Thaya: Let's be honest with ourselves, he was as sketchy as they come.
Rex: True enough. Can you handle the report to HQ?
Thaya: Got it. *Already typing on a PDA*
Rex: *Gives a snarling sigh*
