"Goodbye? No Way! Separation with Tears?!"
Original Air Date:
February 22, 1995
English Air Date:

There was a full recap of recent
episodes is provided at the start of the episode
The Cave of
the Sun God is on the land of Momiji’s family
Mr Kunikida knows he
has to kill Kaede but doubts he can, and Momiji and Kaede’s mother
is also willing to do the same, creating a barrier with her own blood
because she was once the Kushinada. Kaede and Susano-O easily break
Murakumo throughout the episode and hangs in there fairly well
despite being under-powered, even drawing blood on Murakumo, but he
ends up being killed by Muarakumo, Momiji actually flies to
Kusanagi’s location seeing the final blow as Kusangi manages to
crack the mirror but its too late
Murakumo creates a
mirror that when the sun this it will signal the arrival of Susana-O
at the Cave of the Sun God
Momiji can sense the
presence and communicate with Kaeda and Murakumo via telephaty like
she can with Kusanagi
Momiji and Ryoko
went searching for the Cave, but it turned they were tracking the
battle between Kusanagi and Murakumo, when Susana-O attacks
Kaede reveals that
for Japan to be worthy of her protection as the Kushinada is that
everyone must become plants.
Huge difference between Kaede and Momiji is that Kaede has no 'heart'

And yeah, I’ve had this copy for years since I don’t have the back cover any more and am Iucky to still have the front cover.
But as you can tell from the cover, it features the return of Ardra.
For those of you who may not know: Ardra was the antagonist in the season four episode, ‘Devil’s Due’, where the Enterprise-D responds to a distress call from a planet that was being tormented by a person claiming to be their Devil. Ardra in actuality is a con-woman who uses her knowledge of the planet’s culture along with devices like transporters, holograms a…
This week the mission we're playing is 'What's Left Behind'...
Admiral Tuvok and 'Forever Ensign because there is no way in hell he'd become A' Captain Kim have been going over the strange device that we found on Vaadwaur prime at the end of last week's Mission (Takedown), and so we're going to meet up Voyager to lend a hand.
Before I give my thoughts on the mission itself, I want to point out that story line wise, this mission ties together two episodes of the Star Trek The Next Generation, the first being Conspiracy, from season 1, and Schisms, from season 5. These were two episodes that ended up having an ominous endings that was never followed up on, which allowed for the folks behind Star Trek Online to use these elements to build up on the Iconian mythos of using servant races to do their dirty work. The world building done in this game on concepts that were left to die in the shows is simply fantastic in …
