A long time ago,
humans staked their youth in the sea. In the seven seas, romance, ambition, adventures, and aspiration clashed
against fire. Now the youths in A.D. 2200… challenge the sea in the galaxy. There lies a planet
far beyond our imagination. (ARMORED FLEET DAIRUGGER XV) We haven’t heard anything
from Galveston Captain Nolan. Keets, do you no sense anything
with your precognition? Nothing at all. But I can’t think that Galveston
would abandon such a wonderful planet. (“TELES AND ASIMOV”) So Commander Teles
is finally going to set out personally? The situation
in the Galveston homeworld… must be becoming quite grave. Even I can’t help but feel compassion
for the situation on their planet. -Ise.
-Yes, sir. If it’s what they want, I would even be willing to approve
this planet for them to immigrate to. But that’s only on the condition… that they abandon their ambitions
for galactic domination. You summoned me, Commander Teles? Rocher, in fact,
the Earth Commander and I… are going to talk about
that habitable planet. What? What? But aren’t they the ones who
are trying to drive us off that planet? What is the point of a discussion now? Whatever happens, we must secure that planet for ourselves. Then we must use
whatever means necessary to do so. First of all, they have fought us several, no, dozens of times! I can’t agree with this! Rocher, the homeworld has entrusted me
with full authority… and command in the search
for a habitable planet. We will solve this issue in my way. If you are so firmly resolved,
then I will not hinder you. -Commander…
-But whatever happens, for talks to be concluded peacefully,
you must not make any move against Earth. Understood. Ridiculous. Does he still believe… that we can obtain an inhabitable planet
through indulgent means like negotiations? Open the gate. The captain’s shuttle
is returning to the ship. -Thank you, Aki.
-Captain. -Is there no word from Captain Nolan?
-No, sir. Nothing yet. Sirk, that is the planet of our hopes. What a beautiful planet it is. Our homeworld Galveston used to be
beautiful like that once too. -It’s a Galveston fleet.
-What? Put it on the main screen. It’s being guarded
by two battle attackers too. There’s no doubt it’s Commander Teles. Commander Teles. Captain Nolan is hailing us. -All right, open a channel.
-Yes, sir. Commander Teles has arrived. I will show you the location of the talks. This cape,
50 kilometers northeast of here. -The time will be in one hour.
-Understood. By the way, for our mutual safety,
and to avoid misunderstandings, I would like us to agree upon
some conditions for the talks. Very well. State your conditions. First, in addition to the commanders,
two other people will attend the talks. In other words, you and I. Both fleets will be on standby
20 kilometers from the negotiation site. Since you chose the place
and time for the talks, we would like you to allow us
to investigate the site beforehand. Understood. Then I will have our fleet
moved to position. Captain, going with the only two of you
is dangerous! Walter, Keets.
Go investigate the proposed site. -Roger.
-Roger. Land Rugger, combine! Sea Rugger, combine! All ships, proceed! All ships, proceed! I see. So the talks
are finally commencing, huh? -Yes, sir.
-I’ll contact Supreme Commander Caponello. Jackson, keep me updated
on Commander Teles’ actions. Yes, sir. This is the Land Rugger.
Nothing unusual on the ground at present. Roger. This is the Sea Rugger.
Nothing unusual here either. Roger that.
Just to be sure, you and Walter… check out the interior
of the continent from the air. Roger. Walter, the Rugger Guard is being
extremely cautious, huh. Obviously. We’re dealing with Galveston. We can’t have a repeat
of what’s happened before. -Don’t miss even the slightest thing.
-I know. 20 kilometers to target cape. Commander Asimov and Captain Ise
are launching. All right, open the gate. The talks are going to commence shortly. Here they are. I am Teles, Commander
of the Galveston Exploration Base. I am Asimov, Commander
of the Three Allied Planets Fleet. This is very abrupt, Commander Teles,
but I will be frank. We already understood
and considered the situation… on your homeworld, Galveston. If you wish it, we are ready to recognize
this planet as your new land. But there is a condition. A condition? What’s that? It’s smoke.
Okay, let’s approach and have a look. -Walter, did you just see that?
-They were people, no mistake. What? Abandon our dreams
of galactic conquest? -Yes, sir.
-Teles. And you still call yourself
a Galveston soldier? Can’t you see
what the Earth people are thinking? Listen. Why do you think they’ve sent
their fleet all the way out here? Think about it! But fighting was never their original… Open your eyes, Teles! It is as plain as day from their actions
that they are seeking galactic domination. But very well. If they’re making such an offer,
tell them we accept their terms. (ARMORED FLEET DAIRUGGER XV) (ARMORED FLEET DAIRUGGER XV) What? There are humans in the interior? They seem to have a stone-age lifestyle, but there’s no mistake,
they’re indigenous to this planet. I see. It figures. Walter, Keets. Return to the ship as soon
as you’ve finished your investigation. -Roger.
-Roger. Sorry to keep you waiting. How did it go, Commander Teles? Regarding your offer,
the homeworld government… is harboring some concerns
about it right now. We would like some time. I apologize for throwing cold water
on your effort, Commander Teles, But more important than our terms,
we can no longer yield the planet to you, -unless we have further assurance.
-What? We’ve just gotten a report
from our recon team. Did you know that there are already
indigenous people living on this planet? There are people on this planet? Consequently, we alone can’t decide
what happens to this planet. But if we and the natives of this planet
can get along well together, -then would you approve?
-Of course. But to that end,
we demand another condition. We ask for the disarmament
of the entire Galveston military. And we wish it to be done under our watch. I understand. Please give me some time. Well, Aki? Does it seem to be going well? I’m not sure. What? Disarm under their supervision? Don’t be ridiculous! Teles, would you cast away our pride
for the sake of some natives? But Supreme Commander, this is a critical issue that affects
the future of the Galveston people. Please think it through again
for the sake of all our people. I will not! Do you think Emperor Corsair
would happily swallow… such humiliating terms? But this one time! If I say no, I mean no! Tell those people
to vacate the planet immediately! If they do not comply,
then drive them out even if it kills you! That is your duty. It is your obligation
to the Galveston homeworld. Teles, answer me! This is an order.
What’s going through your head? Answer me, Teles! Why you… Commander Teles. -How did it go?
-I’m sorry. The homeworld government
told me to take this planet… even if I have to fight you. But put your mind at ease,
Commander Asimov. It will mean defying the will
of the Galveston homeworld, but I will leave this planet. Commander Teles. This abundant habitable planet
belongs to its inhabitants. It is no one else’s. Excuse me. Commander Teles! To think Galveston would have
such a fine commander, and yet… But even if we can sympathize
with Commander Teles’ feelings, there will be no peace in this cosmos,
unless we defeat… the Galveston homeworld government. The homeworld government
won’t just leave this planet be either. -We’ll leave a portion of the fleet here.
-Yes, sir. The sixth and eighth fleet
will stay on this planet… and monitor Galveston’s actions. All ships, launch! Rugger Guard, launch! All ships, launch! What? Commander Teles handed over
the planet to the enemy? Yes, sir. I got the report
from Jackson just now. That jerk Teles! Rocher, is Jackson a trustworthy man? Yes, sir. Good. Attention, Captain Nolan
and Captain Jackson. We are going to recommence the search
for a new inhabitable planet at once. Stow the battle attackers. Nolan, head out
to survey Number 58 Star System, and Jackson,
head out to survey Number 1 Star System. I will return to the base. -Understood.
-Understood. Listen up. Return to Number 3 Planet
immediately and occupy the planet. Emergency! A portion of the Galveston
fleet is returning to the planet! What? Transfer to the main screen! Don’t tell me they’re going to take
the planet by brute force? But the Captain said we could trust
that Commander Teles guy. Yes. But if they’re moving
without his knowledge, the ships we left on the planet
are in danger. Rugger Team, deploy immediately! Protect the planet until the Rugger Guard
and the Support Fleet arrive! -Yes, sir!
-Yes, sir! Crush them, crush them!
Number 3 Planet belongs to Galveston! Screw you, Galveston!
We will protect this planet until the end! What? Jackson is engaged in a fight
on Number 3 Planet? That fool! So after I defied orders from
the homeworld to protect that planet, now it’s turned into a battlefield. How could this happen? The enemy fleet’s more powerful
than expected. At this rate… Don’t lose your nerve!
Deploy the battle attacker! That’s it, battle attacker!
Go berserk even more! -Emergency! It’s the Rugger Team!
-What? All right, battle attacker,
deal with the DaiRugger first! Aki, it’s a battle attacker! Not on our watch!
Everyone, combine the DaiRugger! -Roger!
-Roger! DaiRugger Fighting Formation on! Aki, let’s change locations. If we fight here any longer,
we’ll ruin this beautiful nature! All right, let’s fight at the cape. Status report. Thanks to the DaiRugger,
the fleet’s morale is up… and they’re really fighting back. Good! Increase speed! Bring it on! DaiRugger Lance! Crap! DaiRugger Kilder! Aki! Electromagnetic Whip! Aki, let’s finish it off
with the DaiRugger Sword! Right! DaiRugger Sword! -The battle attacker’s been beaten!
The enemy Support Fleet is closing in! Say what? We won’t allow them to invade this planet!
Commence an all-out attack! Jackson fleet has been wiped out. -Is Number 3 Planet safe?
-Yes, sir. Thank goodness. But I do not think Jackson alone
was behind this. So it was the homeworld? Is the homeworld
government really thinking… about the future of the Galveston people? Commander Teles was a fine man. But now that it has come to this, we must defeat
the Galveston government and soon. -For the people of Galveston too.
-Yes, sir. But Commander Teles went so far
as to defy the will… of his homeworld to try to
give up an inhabitable planet. What will end up happening to him? I hope he ends up all right, but… (TO BE CONTINUED)
