Episode Summary

The Odyssey receives a distress signal from a crystalline planet, which is under attack by Tridents. The planet's ruler, Queen Calypso, pleads for their help, but Yumi senses that it is a trap, and Sherka agrees with her. Regardless, Ulysses decides to help Calypso against the armies of Poseidon, and takes a shuttle to fight the Tridents. Afterwards, Calypso tells Ulysses that the Tridents have fractured their crystal sun, and that her planet will soon freeze over. Ulysses uses the Odyssey's master repair robot to fix the crystal sun, while Calypso secretly takes orders from Zeus to get rid of Ulysses and his friends. She tells Ulysses that their sun absorbs knowledge and that when he has finished repairing it, their people will have calculated the route back to Earth for him. Before Ulysses can begin, the small crystalline sun collapses to the ground, and Ulysses pushes Calypso out of the way. He is then kept prisoner by her guards, while she orders that he be kept in prison rather than executed. Now falling in love with Ulysses, Calypso is ordered by Zeus to finish her obligation quickly, or face the gods' wrath. Calypso frees Ulysses, and she tells him that she must destroy him in order to save her people. She is unable to fight him due to her feelings, and Zeus begins to destroy her planet. The Odyssey comes under attack by Tridents, while Ulysses defends Calypso from Zeus' crystalline creatures. Calypso is mortally wounded, and crumbles to dust in Ulysses' hands. As Calypso's planet is destroyed, Ulysses returns to the Odyssey, and their journey through Olympus goes on.moreless
