In another part of the galaxy, the commander of the red-skull pirates tells the captain of the academy that they'll be arriving in seven hours. The captain says that he's not classy, and that's because he doesn't want to engage with the pirates. The commander says that the silver-dragon spear was the cause of the destruction of the entire academy fleet. He says that if the captain wants to study interstellar command, he should ask all the ships in the fleet to attack each other. This will give him time to buy himself some time to figure out a way to destroy the pirates without having to engage them. He'll then give another order to ask all of the ships to attack the pirates one by one. This way, he says, he'll buy himself more time. He also says that his master is among the best fighters in the entire federation. He adds that he plans to devote himself to his study. Three months later, the captain says he can "sublimine forging stably" .
