A civil war erupts in the Febdash territory, as some of the vassals remain loyal to the sinister Baron and some side with Lafiel and the Empire. The Baron, however, refuses to give up and plays one final card? Afterwards, Lafiel and Jinto resume their flight plan to Sufugnoff. But along the way, they encounter some enemy ships. Alone in an unarmed craft, Jinto and Lafiel don't really stand much of a chance at armed combat. When they land on a nearby planet, they find themselves in a potentially hostile environment. Lafiel, being an Abh, has never really spent much time on the ground, and she is uncomfortable and nervous. And, despite Jinto's best attempts to hide Lafiel's true identity, they are soon being hunted by the local authorities and the United Mankind!

Great music and deadpan humor by hneline1 September 11, 2002 - 11:56 PM PDT

What struck me as I watched this volume is how beautifully the music intertwines with the mood and the action, and also how much subtle humor is enveloped in the dialog. I often found myself laughing out loud a few pauses after Jinto or Lafiel delivers a deadpan joke, suddenly getting it. Watch it in Japanese... and make sure that you have the next Volume handy when you finish the three episodes here, because the cliffhangers are quite involving.

Crest of the Stars / Banner of the Stars
An excellent Hard SF offering well-developed in all respects thanks to its great narrative depth. As one of a handful of anime series to be based on a series of novels, it has a distinct SF-novel feel.
Anime I Love
Although I've seen a lot I've liked, these are the ones I had to mention (not necessarily in any particular order).
