Gilliam II runs simulations to try to teach Gene how to take off in the Outlaw Star, but Gene repeatedly crashes. Jim gets his car out of impound and goes to work as a mechanic while Melfina learns to cook and Gene works on the ship. Sometime later, a Kei Pirate and powerful Senjutsu master called Kyokan attacks Melfina while she's cooking, but Suzuka intervenes. Suzuka and Kyokan duel, and Suzuka wins after killing him with a secret technique. Meanwhile, Gene's fight with another Kei Pirate named Yase leaves him poisoned. The crew then meets up on the Outlaw Star and Suzuka asks to help out because of her dislike towards the Kei Pirates.
