Plot[edit | edit source]

AuDy's quick maneuvering causes one pursuing Rook to fall out of formation. Aria draws the attention of the remaining two and AuDy successfully loses them. Cass and Mako follow Shell Lotz to a mech hangar and knock him down with a hover-scaffold. As Cass tries to question Shell, the Queen mech in the hangar shoots at them, but Mako diverts her missiles. Unable to attack further without harming Shell, the Queen mech shoots his mech, destroying it, and takes off.

The Queen heads for the Regent's Brilliance and breaks its eye cam. AuDy pilots the Kingdom Come into the hangar and brings Cass, Mako and Shell aboard, but the enemy ship in the hangar follows them out. Mako ties Shell to a chair. Aria, who is getting swarmed, sends out fireworks to the song Soldier Game to disorient the enemy. Cass launches in the Megalo File and fires back and forth with the Queen. Mako tries to hack the Queen and enemy ship, but is countered by Tril aboard the ship. AuDy shoots the Queen, and she starts falling until Tril hacks her thrusters and reactivates them. The enemy ships and mechs disengage.

The last scene shows Cene imprisoned in a lab, being shown strange code on a series of displays.
