An episode with a piratical theme. The AH.com ship is chasing the CF.net through different universes; Ward successfully diverts their attention by firing an 'A.S.S.H.A.T.', some sort of timed superbomb weapon, at the Earth of one timeline and then escapes, knowing the AH.commers will have to stop and disarm it. It is noted that this planet is still on eighteenth century levels of technology and culture for no obvious reason, even though the modern countries are the same as OTL. (See below)
The AH.commers go down to the planet, most of them in awkward period costume, but Dave Howery in his ordinary clothes and packing a powerful weapon. However, this backfires on him when the locals assume he must be the AH.commers' servant. The AH.commers learn that the A.S.S.H.A.T. has been captured by a curiously…familiar crew of pirates under Captain What, and charter a ship under Fellatio Nelson to chase after them.
They eventually retrieve and disarm the A.S.S.H.A.T., and Dave Howery leaves the Americans of that TL with plans for steam mechs with which to conquer Canada.
The A.S.S.H.A.T.s were later retconned as the weapons used in ONCE MORE INTO THE BREECH, replacing the reference to Ender's Game there.
