Episode Summary

The Hidden Truth
The Odyssey passes close to a spaceship that is sending out a distress call. The ship is brought on board the Odyssey, and its lone occupant, a woman named Galatea tells Ulysses that she is from the planet Nereoplois. Sherka finally translates the distress call and they find that it actually came from a man named Nereus. Soon, the Odyssey is surrounded by thousands of Tridents, while Sharkmen disembark from Galatea's ship and take Ulysses and the children prisoner. Ulysses is taken to a prison cell along with another man who tells him that they will be taken to Squalopolis, the new name for Nereopolis. The children are kept separate due to their immunity from the Sharkmen's mind control brooches. Ulysses' cellmate tells him that Galatea was the daughter of the former King Nereus. Ulysses informs him that Nereus is still alive as he detected his message. In Squalopolis, Telemachus and Yumi are taken away to fight in tomorrow's games for a public holiday. With the help of his cellmate, Ulysses escapes from the Sharkmen before he too is made a helpless slave. Ulysses comes across a bar full of people not wearing the mind control devices, but they don't see any hope without King Nereus. Then, an old man stands up and announces himself to be Nereus. No one believes him, and so he and Ulysses talk in private. Meanwhile, Telemachus makes friends with Glycon, the son of Nereus and tells of his sister Galatea. Ulysses talks to the old man and figuring out that he was also his cellmate in another form, is told that only he can convince the people that their king is still alive. The next day, Telemachus and Glycon fight each other and pretend to kill each other, while Ulysses and Nereus attempt to tell the people that their former King is still alive. Telemachus and Glycon head for the mind control centre, and rescue their arrested parents. While Yumi and Nono distract the android Duke, the new ruler of Squalopolis, Ulysses, Nereus and their children destroy all the mind control devices and free the people of Nereopolis. With Poseidon's forces defeated, Galatea escorts Ulysses and the children back to the Odyssey.moreless
