Opening Narration Edit
"Transponders are a broadcasting device required to be active on all ships in order to notify others of their presence. A ship's name, registry, present location and heading...The transponder's information is human will and goals. When sailors understand one another's ships, the quietness of space becomes a golden sea. In this era, space is still filled with memories of the great age of exploration."

Look forward to it."

"Begin combat operations."
During the original broadcast, the Odette II's display had 'dummy' written as 'dammy'. This was corrected by the time of the Blu-Ray release but retained in the DVD release.
