Last Exile: Fam, the Silver Wing – 10

SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

Last Exile: Fam, the Silver Wing - 10At “The Hole” in Grand Lake, Silvius and the fleet Fam captured arrive to take part in a ceremony, whereby the Sky Pirates and Anatoray-Disith form an alliance with each other and with the Turan Government in Exile. Vincent discusses additional alliances and Glacies comes to the top of the list, though that will be difficult, especially with Silvius having been involved in a conflict with them. However, it has to be done until Anatoray-Disith has more of its own forces here. Dio takes the time to introduce Fam, Gisey, and Millia to Alvis, the operator of the Anatoray Exile. After explaining how the Exile control process works, Millia understands that her sister is still alive.

Last Exile: Fam, the Silver Wing - 10Luscinia’s ship, Impetus, approaches, flying both the Ades flag and Liliana’s flag. Liliana descends from the ship, thanks Millia for her hard work, then tells the surviving Turan troops, who’d taken possession of the captured Ades warships, that she’s taking back control of the Turan government and as such, the fighting between Turan and Ades is over.  The Turan troops, happy at having Liliana back, are initially confused, then celebratory at the news that the war is over.  Millia, Fam, and Gisey are very surprised by this as Luscinia then descends to address the crowd, confirming what Liliana stated.

Last Exile: Fam, the Silver Wing - 10Turning is attention to Vincent and Tatiana, Luscinia demands that the Silvius be turned over to him in exchange for their overlooking the acts of terrorism Tatiana has inflicted on them. Millia tries to reason with Liliana and refuses to return to the Impetus with her. As such, Liliana strips Millia of her title and disowns her as a sister before leaving. Fam thinks that Liliana must be being controlled and wants to go rescue Liliana, but Millia stops her, saying she does not think her sister is being controlled. Further to that, Millia believes her sister is serious about everything that has just transpired.

Last Exile: Fam, the Silver Wing - 10Vincent has a chat with Tatiana and Alister, telling them that he knows it won’t end if they turn over Silvius to Ades.  As the Ades Third Fleet attacks Kartoffel, Liliana has the fleet Fam pirated under her direct command and orders an attack on the Silvius. Despite Millia being there, the crews obey and begin firing as a squad of Guild special ops begin systematically slaughtering the crew of Silvius.  Vincent barely escapes with Alvis to his ship, Urbanus, which manages to get free with Silvius providing cover fire.

Last Exile: Fam, the Silver Wing - 10When one gun crew fails to report in, Tatiana soon learns they’ve been boarded and orders the ship sealed. Dio saves Fam, Gisey, and Millia from being murdered by Alauda. The Guild squad takes out all the gun crews, easily overcoming the sealed and locked doors, and captures the engine room.  Fam, Gisey, and Millia are given clearance to leave to get Millia to safety.  Their Vespa is quickly pursued by three Ades Federation Vanships, but they are approaching Glacies, where all four craft are detected by a Glacies rocket ship on patrol, who moves to investigate.

Thoughts/Review:

With the ease with which the Guild squad slips on board a ship and slaughters its entire crew, one wonders why Ades hasn’t been using them to take out all of their enemies. Sure, it would be slower, but less risky for Ades, eh? After all, these Guild bozos are impervious to bullets, easily go through sealed doors, and move like the wind.  *_*

Last Exile: Fam, the Silver Wing - 10

Regardless, Luscinia has managed to turn things completely his way. All the work Fam and Gisey did has just been flushed and Ades now avoids a bloody rebellion.  Question is, how does he have Liliana in his court? Also, why wasn’t there more of a negative reaction to Liliana’s orders to kill Millia by firing on Silvius?

Last Exile: Fam, the Silver Wing - 10

With the Third Fleet now attacking Kartoffel, the Sky Pirates will need a new home. Let’s see if the Anatoray-Disith take them in.

Last Exile: Fam, the Silver Wing - 10

With all the talk of Glacies, combined with the fact that Fam is fleeing toward their territory and this has been noted by a Glacies patrol, I’m guessing that Glacies will be forced to take action against Ades to save Fam, Gisey, and Millia, whereby that alliance needed by the Sky Pirates and Anatoray-Disith gets achieved.

Last Exile: Fam, the Silver Wing - 10

It was nice seeing Alvis again, even if only for an extended cameo. She’s grown a bit since I last saw her. ^_^ Considering Luscinia’s apparent need for Exile keys, Alvis seems a likely candidate to be targeted by Ades.

Last Exile: Fam, the Silver Wing - 10

Then, there was Dio coming to the rescue. In some ways, it is still difficult for me to see him on the “good guys” side, but I do like it. ^_^

Last Exile: Fam, the Silver Wing - 10

So, an interesting twist to the story. I’m looking forward to more.

    The arrival of Alvis on the scene is more important than just a camo, it relate the fact that Exile is also present, amd under her control. We know from the manga that the local guild are already hunting her, and that she is extremly important to hold power. The fact she escape teh somehow and has brought additional she to ‘earth’ means more to the power.

    Which brings me to Fam, she was picked out of a crashed van ship, just as Alvis was. I would not put it past the writer to repeat that play, I suspect that Dio will test her as soon as the meet again. If so then the “good guys” ,may control two or three starships.

    As for the Guild team, they are about to have a bad day. Dio was never realy a villian in the previous series, instead he was his sister’s puppet, containly trying to cut his strings. More import now is that Dio was a Guild prince, and winner of their dreadly culling cerimony. He going to hunt down all the guild assasins, and kill them.

    Finally, did any one else notice that sceene were a guild crew found a guild command ship? I wonder how important that going to be in the series.

    One more thing, does anyone else think the the Aides royal family are also startship controllers?

    True, but all she received was a cameo. ^_^

    Which reminds me, I need to catch up on the manga.

    I’d forgotten about the culling, though I knew that Dio was some of the best of the best.

    I totally missed that. ^_^;;;

    Well, if they were supposed to flee Earth as well but didn’t, then some of them could (Augusta springs to mind).
