  • After receiving a distress signal from the Kokuchou, sunk during the war, and the ship's mysterious appearance over Garnet A, Jackie Kelvin attempts to steal the Odette II posing as a tax inspector. Following this, the Bentenmaru, the Barbaroosa and Odette II travel to Garnet A. The Odette II ends up getting transported to the frontier and is pursued by forces from the Pirate Guild, though the privateers manage to protect it long enough to thwart the enemy's efforts [9][33][34].
  • Following a training exercise with the imperial fleet, Marika is hired by the imperial intelligence division to infiltrate the Skull Star. The Bentenmaru manages to successfully place a small group (plus one stowaway) onto the Skull Star [3].
  • During her stay at the Skull Star, Gruier is kidnapped and encounters the bounty hunter Noel Blue. After leaving, Noel contacts Marika for help in tracking down Jackie Kelvin, who is trying to obtain a document from the War of Independence in Hakuoh Academy's underground section. They corner him but he manages to escape [35].
  • After coming to the aid of a transport ship under fire, the Bentenmaru is then framed and wanted for the attack. Taking refuge at Serenity, with help from their allies, the crew identify the enemy as Rakion, who are trying to get pirates out of the way for business. They eventually manage to expose Rakion's actions and exonerate themselves [36].
  • The yacht club make several excursions on the Odette II to obtain data from the FTL booster for a registration change. During one of these, they encounter another Odette II near a space-time anomaly. Chasing after it, they end up time-slipping to the time of the War of Independence. After a week in the past, they return to the present just before they left (as the other ship) [37][38][39][40].
  • Following the Odette II's return, the Bentenmaru is hired to investigate the space-time anomaly.

  • A series of attacks is carried out on frontier pirates by the Grand Cross, leading to the first Pirate's Council since the War of Independence and a final battle between a pirate fleet and the pirate hunter [42][6][43][44][20].
  • During the spring break before Marika's third year at Hakuoh Academy, the Bentenmaru crew carry out a request entrusted to Gonzaemon by the late Professor Mugen to help his son Kanata Mugen with his choice for his future, facing the machinations of the Yggdrasil Group in the process of finding the professor's legacy [15].
  • Using the Advaseele, Kanata penetrates the X-Point, creating a whole new subspace junction in the process. He disappears on a journey some time afterwards, apparently fed up with all the awards and commendations he was receiving for his accomplishment [15].

  • The yacht club begin a campaign to recruit new members at the start of the new school year [46][47].


  • During the War of Independence, the planets of the Colony Federation used the New Calendar (starting from the year the first of its planets, the Sea of the Forest Star, was colonized [7]), after having previously used the calendar system of the Stellar Alliance. After the war, they switched to the Galactic Standard calendar, though the New Calendar was still used for certain government documents [7].
