Episode Summary

The Kingdom Of Hades
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
