Released from Smeardom's ship, the Argo warps directly into the center of the Galman Empire. The arrival brings back memories for Commander Wildstar, who recalls the Argo's first journey to Iscandar to help save Earth. Enroute, the Star Force battled... (more) and defeated Desslok. When the Comet Empire attacked, however, Desslok sided with the Argo. Heavily damaged from the earlier war, Gamilon exploded. Queen Starsha of Iscandar also sacrificed her planet to save both Desslok and the Star Force. When the Star Force meets Desslok, they notice twin planets, one looking like Gamilon and the other like Iscandar. Desslok says he named the Iscandar-like planet after Starsha in memory of her sacrifice and also because he loved her. Desslok had also built the Galman Empire by liberating Galman, the ancestral planet of Gamilon, and several other planets from the Bolar Federation. He then built up a powerful armed force and amassed great wealth to ensure the planets would remain liberated. The news leaves Derek puzzled and worrying about whether Desslok plans to conquer Earth. If so, it means the end of their friendship. 183 days remain before the sun destroys Earth.
