Rallen and Jeena hone their piloting skills. Meanwhile, the evil Krux makes plans for a Dark Spectrobe army.
At the Nanairo Planetary Patrol headquarters on Kollin, Rallen and Jeena are honing their piloting skills by flying after Krawl in a simulation. As they chase one Krawl, Jeena notes that two more are on their tail. Jeena suggests evasive maneuvers, though Rallen slows the ship down, allowing him to blast two of the Krawl, though Jeena notes the third one. However, as soon as Rallen attempts to chase after the third one, Jeena states that their engines are blown, and the simulation is shut down, Commander Grant stating that Rallen trusts his instincts too much. Outside of the "ship," Jeena blames Rallen for their failure, stating that he only did the maneuver because he "thought it'd be cool," and as a result blew the engines. Rallen argues that he got two hits, but Jeena argues that there was a third and that they would be defenseless. Rallen tells her to blame the system engineers, at which point she finally decides to angrily leave.
On Malik, in Krux's lair, Krux summons Maja to him, asking if he was wrong in trusting the "Dark Spectrobes" to her. Maja states that she has successfully evolved them into their Adult states, but that evolving them further has been tricky; Krux, however, gives her an object which he states is a Ruby mineral, which he claims will accelerate the growth of the Dark Spectrobes. Krux then commands her to make him an army of Dark Spectrobes.
