Ilita asks what the Solar System Fleet is doing to stop the vessel and is alarmed to find out that every planet that the ship has stopped on has declared war on one another.
Yattaran and his gadgets help save the day.
The execution draws near and Kei Yuki's crew is brought into the execution arena. They are reunited other members of Captain Harlock's crew and, despite the circumstances, they are happy to see each other again. Kei feels confident that the captain will rescue them because he told them to live their lives as free men during their last meeting. 1st-officer Yattaran however wonders if the captain will come for them, stating that the freedom granted to them also involves the freedom to be caught and killed. However, Yattaran still makes plans to buy the captain some time in case he does plan on rescuing them. Yattaran's plan works and Harlock is able to avoid Ilita's trap and still rescue all of his crew.
