His spaceship is damaged and he crash lands on an unknown planet. His ship explodes shortly after he crawls out of it, and he is shortly discovered by Zef (Garmash) and arrested. Guy Gaal (Fyodorov) was appointed to escort him. As they are making their way back to the capital by train, they are attacked by the so-called "degenerates". The degenerates attack the military convoy and destroy a nearby tower, which Guy says is part of a missle defense network.
