Sixth volume of the Japanese anime series. In the near future, mankind now regularly travels among the stars. But with an increase in space travel, there is an increase in space junk, and it's up to the Debris Collecting Service to keep the space routes clear. Hachirota 'Hachimaki' Hoshino and new recruit Ai Tanabe work around the clock, keeping themselves going with dreams of owning their own spaceship. In this volume, the first Federal Summit in space is disrupted when the Space Protectors attack Galileo headquarters and grab control of their communications network. With the help of Claire, Hakim and his men manage to take over the Toybox and board the Von Braun, in an attempt to take control of the ship and crash it into the largest city on the moon. Episodes are: 'Exposure'; 'Debris Cluster'; 'Love'; 'The Lost'; and 'And the Days We Chance Upon'.
