: Ep 11 -
If there's one thing Hibiki is good at, it's playing pack mule for Dita's hairbrained schemes. This time, the two are stealing around the ship, gathering food for some unspecified purpose. Are they surprising the ship with dinner, or just being greedy? Their suspicious actions end up piquing Paiway's curiosity, but she only ends up with hurt feelings after being seemingly brushed off by Dita. Meanwhile, Bart isn't feeling comfortable. No matter what happens, he complains, the crew just doesn't seem to be warming up to him. Fortunately, Duero has some advice prepared that might help - though Bart tends to take things quite literally...
Unfortunately, a few misunderstandings, coupled with Paiway's hurt feelings and an impressive chain of assumptions and lies turns the women of the Nirvana hostile towards the men once again. Hibiki escapes in his Vanguard, and the other men are locked in the brig. Alone once again, Hibiki wanders space until he finds a fleet comprised of both men and women, desperately fighting against the biggest threat yet - a Harvest fleet mothership that may prove to be too much against Hibiki's new friends...moreless
