Gene and Jim try to figure out who is the young girl (Melfina) in the suitcase, and they also try to get some answers out of Hilda. Then Melfina goes through some kind of resuscitation (she awakens because she is really an android ). Their talk is cut short by the arrival of the pirates. Jim and Hilda go for the spaceship while Gene holds off the pirates. Melfina finally wakes up completely, and all four of them get away into outer space. While in space, we find out about Gene's phobia of space travel and a bit about his past (his father was killed by pirates). The group reaches Blue Heaven, an asteroid that doesn't allow guns, where they meet Hilda's friends and get Melfina some real clothes. Gene and Hilda also run into a bit of trouble with some ruffians at a bar, who also try to attack them both while they're sleeping. As Gene and Hilda go out into the hall from their room, a robot blocks their path. Two humans, without their guns, against one robot: It's not looking too good for our heroes right now.
