Summary: The Nadesico gets a new mission. They need to destroy a new Jovian weapon they’ve nicknamed the Walking Stick. They have to do a ground attack with the Aestivalis units because the Nadesico would be too big a target.
The good: The song they sing while they’re marching to the target. Also, the teamwork of the pilots. It wasn’t there at the beginning of the episode.
The less good: Why is the Admiral still on the ship? He should have stayed on that island with the crazy girl.
