Ledo is in a state of shock over the revelation of the Hideauze origin, while Chamber is unperturbed and seeks to continue their mission of slaughter. Meanwhile, power quickly goes to Pinion's head. After recovering an abundance of treasure and ancient weaponry from the decimated whalesquid nest, he broadcasts a threat to all ships in the area, basically saying "approach and be sunk". But that doesn't deter pirates from zeroing in on the small fleet.

As Ledo deals with the repercussions of his discovery, Pinion begins salvaging the treasure from the depths. Flange looks at the treasure recovered and exclaims that it could restore society to its former glory. However, Pinion had different ideas about the use of the treasure. He believes that they should enrich themselves first. He then broadcasts a message to the surrounding ships in the area that boasts the accomplishments and warns that all ships that approach them will be sunk without mercy.

A pirate ship nearby does not heed Pinion's warning and engages Pinion's fleet in battle. They are swiftly defeated when the fleet tests the weapons acquired from the ruins. After the pirate crew's defeat, Pinion allows them to join his fleet.

Ledo continues brooding about massacring the Hideauze. The Chamber provides further proof that the Hideauze are indeed evolved humans. Ledo begins to question the Galactic Alliance's policies. Chamber tells Ledo that he should continue to fight the Hideauze because his sole mission is to protect humanity and the Hideauze's extreme form of living threats the existence of humanity. Then Chamber's sensors detect an Galactic Alliance Yunboro. Ledo turns around and spots Commander Kugel's Yunboro.

Chamber: "The human race and the Hideauze will always be antagonistic toward one another. The reason for this is they are beings who have rejected civilization as a whole. If the human race were equipped with strong, versatile bodies like the Hideauze, it would not have been necessary to develop Machine Calibers. My system is the crystallization of the intelligence of the human race. But we are also necessary to offset the fragile human body."
