However, Ian has a mission for them: to ascertain whether a planet has been interfered with by the ASBs and, if so, to stop them.

Susano finds this world so appealing that he ignores the obvious evidence of ASBs and tries to back out of the mission, so Alayta mutinies and makes himself captain, locking Susano up. They go there and find it's a Germanwank world where the German Empire is controlled by Hesse, and specifically by an alternate of Susano.

 Susano busts them out, takes back his captain'​s hat, and they fulfil the mission, driving the ASBs away. However, he insists that that day never took place.

 This was an attempt at doing a '​something completely different'​ (yes, it's by Zyzzyva, so every second line of dialogue is the name of a trope from [[offtopic:​TV Tropes]].org) by focusing on [[The Germans]] rather than the regular AH.com crew, who only appear in a brief cameo. This was an attempt at doing a '​something completely different'​ (yes, it's by Zyzzyva, so every second line of dialogue is the name of a trope from [[offtopic:​TV Tropes]].org) by focusing on [[The Germans]] rather than the regular AH.com crew, who only appear in a brief cameo.
