"Queen Lafresia is a Mazone with a heart."Having a hunch as to the reason why Harlock so staunchly opposes them, Queen Lafresia sends someone on a mission to Earth to find out why. They threaten Commander Kiruta and find out about Mayu. Finally believing the warnings about the Mazone that Harlock spoke of, Kiruta pleads to the Prime Minister to defend the Earth. But the Prime Minister does not deem the Mazone a threat. Kiruta finally understands Harlock's impatience with him. Then, after appearing in front of Harlock via hologram, Queen Lafresia is called a coward by Harlock. Then she makes up her mind to kidnap Mayu. She is taken away from Kiruta, who was protecting her, by a Mazone.
