Too bad then that every time she is given a task, she has no cause for celebration (Marika's in trouble).
I am definitely interested in seeing what Chiaki's relationship with her dad, Kenjo, is like. Is it somewhat like Harlock and the younger Daiba where Kenjo talks about the virtues of "manliness" and them flying under the flag of freedom, and how everyone does their own thing on the ship and they all come together when things need to get done? I suppose Kenjo being overprotective of Chiaki to the degree where she hardly does anything Barbarossa related could be making her compensate being having a very "cold, professional" veneer. It's interesting how Chiaki is soft inside and has a cold, stiff, professional mask and Marika is introspective and serious inside and has that ditzy, happy-go-lucky, charismatic mask that she wears most of the time. It is interesting also how their respective masks tend to slip when they are around each other as if their inner and outer selves compliment each other.

Random space fact - The asteroid in Marika's dream looks exactly like Itokawa, the real asteroid visited by the Japanese Hayabusa space probe in 2005.



The Japanese are a bit nuts about Hayabusa, which was the first space probe to take a sample from an asteroid and bring it back to Earth. There are three full-length feature films about the mission coming out this year.

I'm really concerned for Marika's future safety in actual combat after seeing the way Benten-maru handled the three escorts even if it was mock battle...

Ha! I didn't even notice that. Shame on me, since I just recently read a long comic (with moe, personified versions of all the space equipment (Hayabusa's adorable)) about the whole thing.

I am wondering if they could have one shot killed he escorts if they had actually fired on them directly. It seemed like a battleship verse destroyers.

Excellent - caught up with ep 7 last evening and am really enjoying the pace and slow development of the story, as well as of Marika herself.

Looks like things are about to get moving next week, right as Marika begins to realize that even though she is officially licensed as a pirate and has some skill and know how, she is still green in terms of practical experience - the scene with the ship's doctor temporarily taking command in the fight with the three escort ships really brought that out imo. Marika realizes she still has a long way to go....

Great ep. 7.5/10 vote from me, and eagerly looking forward to the story unfolding.

See? See!

And people complained about the pace. I too liked the pacing. Little bits here and there, with anticipation for something bigger.

When your captain has "Trainee" taped to her back...well you might be a space pirate.

I wondered if that asteroid looked like a real one. Just seeing that asteroid was one of the highlights of that episode for me. I somehow hope one of those feature films about that mission comes over here. I love space documentaries. Sort of makes you wonder when humanity does do a manned Mars mission, which nation will be the first to set foot on the Red Planet?

I'm guessing this is a reference to Rinne no Lagrange (which I haven't seen yet) and Madoka's "Maru" catchphrase and gesture. Seeing Marika do that gesture would be a cool shoutout.

Itokawa is unusual, at least among the asteroids we've seen up close. It's a "rubble pile," not a single large rock but a collection of smaller rocks held together by their mutual gravitational attraction. Notice that it doesn't have any craters.

The three Hayabusa movies aren't documentaries - they're more like docudramas. They're scripted, with actors playing all the parts. The first one, titled simply Hayabusa, stars Yuko Takeuchi and turned up online this past weekend. You can probably find it if you look around.

Yuko Takeuchi.... IIRC wasn't she in the Rescue Wings movie, playing the role of a Genderbent Uchida as the helo noob?

I find a certain sense of... charm, I suppose, towards Chiaki. One moment she's a moe teenaged schoolgirl Chiaki-chan buying stuff for her dad (Jasmine tea, korean rice wine, umeboshi) and the next moment she's Operative Kuriyama of the Barbarossa.

Well, looking forward to next week, to see how the plot thickens- and I'm definately going to get the OST if I can. Probably pay real money for it too...

Misa Grandwood (the cute doc) acts like an XO for Bentenmaru...

On Enterprise-D, the doctor (CMO) sometimes takes command of the saucer section when it separates from the stardrive/battle section.

She wanted action, so she's getting it.

Though of the 3 times I recall Saucer Sep being pulled off, one had Captain Picard (Farpoint Station), the other had Riker's rival during the Best of Both Worlds arc, and the last had the Chief Engineering Officer before La Forge took over.

Dr Crusher didn't qualify for combat command roles until later in the story, but budget constraints stopped Paramount from ever filming more saucer-seps.

I still love the Galaxy-class. It's easily my favorite starship outside of the Millenium Falcon or the Galaxy-class from Wing Com: Privateer.

I love the way this series keeps you thinking one thing is going to happen then pulls a fast one on you. BTW I still want my beach episode and with Ririka in it!

That's because the Bentenmaru (and if you want to get technical, the yacht use by the yacht club girls) ARE battleships.
