Akiha and her friends manage to get back to space by hijacking the orbital elevator and are promptly attacked by Xanthippe. Caught on the edge of Xanthippe's hyperjump, they end up marooned near Jupiter and there they discover the Shishidos' old base in the first war with Nerval. With the help of Yupitan, an alien that was disguised as Sakura's hat and scarf, they are able to hyperjump back to Earth space. Upon returning the refugees from the Kirkwood colony are evacuated to the Leopard colony. During an attack by Nervalist forces, Akiha is kidnapped by Aleida and then imprisoned in a box like the other humans caught by Existence mind control. Will Itsuki and the others be able to rescue their friend?
