      7.1
      Moving past the last planet of a solar system, Sherka detects that the planet shows signs of intelligent life and large deposits of beryl, a naturally occurring silicate comprised of aluminium and beryllium, giving the planet an emerald hue. Entering an area dense with meteors, the Odyssey comes under attack by meteors that have been rearranged into Tridents. The main iris of the Odyssey is damaged when one of the Tridents collides with it. For protection and a place to fix the Odyssey, Ulysses orders the ship to the emerald planet. To repair the iris, Ulysses decides to use the emeralds on the planet to fashion a new lens. He encounters a winged race who tell him that crystals in their cave close to a volcano will be much more suitable for the repairs. As he mines, there is a minor tremor, and flowers sprout forth from the ground. The winged people immediately take seeds from the flowers and eat them. As the quakes increase in intensity, Ulysses seems not to care, and even disregards Nono's warnings. With Ulysses still not having returned from the geologically unstable planet, Telemachus and Yumi go down to bring him back. They are told by a winged boy named Lota not to eat the lotus seeds as they will make them "dreamy", and lose their memory. The plants only grow in the volcanic lava, and so most of the people stay close to the plants, blissfully unaware that they are in constant danger. Lota tells them that he doesn't eat the seeds anymore as he has discovered the secret of the volcano and that once someone eats too many seeds, they disappear. They find Ulysses inside the cave, and Lota goes to rescue his people before it erupts. As the volcano erupts, Ulysses uses the Odyssey's new lens to stop the lava from flowing. As Lota and Telemachus rescue more people, Lot show Telemachus the mechanical digger which plants the seeds, behind which is an image of Zeus. Ulysses seals the volcano, and Lota's people are free from the hold of the lotus flowers.moreless
    • The Kingdom Of Hades
      4/3/82
      8.2
      After travelling through the realm of Olympus for many months now, Sherka confirms with Ulysses that they are travelling towards the galactic glaciers, the location of the Kingdom of Hades. As they approach, the Odyssey is surrounded by a swarm of giant moths that absorb the ship's energy. To stop them from being attracted to the ship, Ulysses orders all the lights turned off. The ship soon collides with a frozen wasteland, and Sherka is taken offline. Outside, they meet Orpheus, who requests that Ulysses take him to the Kingdom of Hades so that he may be reunited with his love, Eurydice, who was taken by Charon aboard his doomed spaceship. Ulysses agrees, and they leave in a shuttle. On the way there, they spot the Odyssey being dragged into the Kingdom of Hades across the river Styx to death. Seeking to save his companions from the kingdom of death, Ulysses pilots his shuttle through to the city of Hades, avoiding the three-headed interceptor satellite Cerberus. The shuttle is destroyed, but not before the escape capsule can be launched. Ulysses and the others enter the city of Hades and Orpheus tells them that their companions have been taken to the Palace of Hades. They have to avoid the backwards-facing dead citizens of Hades, otherwise they too will become citizens of the city of the dead. Reaching the palace, Orpheus follows Eurydice up the staircase of Hades and disappears with her into the dark sky. Ulysses spots his companions also ascending the staircase. He sends Telemachus and Yumi towards the palace, while he follows the rest of the crew up the staircase. There, Ulysses is finally judged, and is confronted by Hades, who tells him that he must leave his companions with him in order to return to the Earth. Ulysses refuses Hades' request, and the god of death tells Ulysses that he will condemn him and the children to be citizens of Hades forever...moreless
    • Nono - I Make Noise
      10
      On a bright and sunny day, with butterflies and bees in the air, Nono frolics about outside a house, performs acrobatic stunts on some frying pans left outside before collapsing ungraciously. A jumbo jet flies ahead, and Nono collapses on his back while looking at the mighty jet.
