DASH investigates a wormhole landing, while Mizuki meets up with a strange man. His goals, however, are unknown, and he is bleeding green blood..
A wormhole appears in the sky, and two bolts of light come from it. One of them is Kesam, an alien man who is wounded. He walks off as Elly picks up on an "EXTRA DIMENSIONAL VIBRATION." It soon vanishes, and Kaito and Mizuki deploy to investigate. Their scanners find nothing, but Mizuki gets lost in a strange mist. Her scanner breaks down, and she trips and falls, hurting her leg.
Mizuki enters a cave, and meets Kesam, and notices he has a strange device. She learns he is an alien, but nurses him regardless, telling him she believes humanity and nature could one day live in harmony. He tells her he was injured while traveling in space, and that when the device on his arm finishes charging, he will be able to return from where he came. Koba and Sean deploy.
Meanwhile, Kaito comes across a large device, and Elly analyzes it as a bomb. Back in the cave, Kesam eventually reveals to Mizuki that it will destroy humanity while he will teleport away to safety, and that he has done the same thing before. She tries to talk him out of it, believing humanity can change.
Kaito bursts into the cave, while Kesam reveals that the bomb will detonate when the sixth signal lamp on his arm lights up. Using Mizuki as a hostage, Kesam escapes. Kaito transforms and tries to remove the bomb, but Kesam grows giant to stop him. The two battle, but by the time Max defeats Kesam, forcing him back to his human form, the bomb is about to go off.
Severely wounded, Kesam himself disables the bomb as Mizuki watches, before dying.

"Hey, you haven't told me your name yet."
"Kesam?... You must have seen so many planets with that device."
"I envy you."
"Mhmm. Being able to instantly travel to any planet, and meet the people there."
"Did I say something weird?"
"No, I'm just surprised by your very simple mentality."
"What's simple about it? Understanding people from a distant planet. I think it's wonderful."
"Meeting them? What is that worth?"
"By exchanging knowledge we could learn many things! We could advance each other's civilizations!"
"I'm saying that THAT is simple. All over the universe, meaningless battles are taking place. Knowledge brings civilization... Civilization brings war! There's no time to understand each other."
"That can't be true."
"On this planet, humans continue to war. They destroy the environment. You believe you own the Earth."
"Captain, I have no excuses. It was my fault that humanity was endangered this time."
"You should have reported him as soon as you found him. Neglecting that duty was your mistake. How ever I do not believe that your decision was entirely misguided. You tried to believe in a person who came from space. Unfortunately, it ended badly. But I think we shouldn't lose our ability, to believe in others."
"Captain...." "I can only hope that a day comes, that all of us who live in the universe, can understand each other."
"It will! It will definitely come in the near future!"
