||Because of a defect in their car, Ken and Jinpei
have a breakdown in the desert. A young girl named Julia takes
them in her car. She tells them that she's on her way to the
harbor to meet her older brother Jeff, who works as a secret
guardsman at the ISO. But the three of them are attacked in the
harbor by the Black Raven mecha corps and Julia ends up heavily
injured. Governor X is searching for a new core element, Hypernium
600, which is said to be 600 times stronger than the old core
element, Platonium. He starts blindly attacking the cities surrounding
the ISO secret hangar in the Abata desert, with his raven mechas.
|Ken and Jinpei's car breaks down
in the desert
||The raven mechas attack!
||Jeff learns that the next target for the attack
is the city of Kinzu. The hospital that his younger sister has
been taken to is located in this city. In order to hand over
the Hypernium 600 to the enemy and save his sister, he goes to
steal it. Ken goes to stop Jeff and to reclaim the Hypernium.
Meanwhile, Joe and the rest of the team go to the enemy base
with the God Phoenix. On their way there, they encounter the
raven mechas which unite and form one huge bird, then attach
themselves to the God Phoenix. Using "Bird Diving",
the Ninja Team gets rid of the ravens attached to the hull, and
destroy the enemy base with a missile. Ken forgives Jeff for
his fault, and Julia stays alive.

||Observatories and weather stations all over the
world are attacked by UFOs. Additionally, authorities in the
field of space communication are assassinated one after the other.
Even Nambu can't guess the true intentions behind the incidents.
In order to protect Dr. Kasshingu of the Irigutchi observatory,
the Science Ninja Team goes to his whereabouts. But it's too
late, they meet Dr. Kasshingu as he is already dying. The culprit
is Galactor. Before dying, Dr. Kasshingu tells them that it was
Dr. Raphael's Leapwave which made space communication possible.
Upon hearing Dr. Raphael's name, Joe disappears from the sight
of Ken and the others.
|The team finds Dr. Kasshingu
||Joe goes to meet Dr. Raphael
||Elsewhere Governor X is afraid of Dr. Raphael
because he could unveil his secret. When X learns that Dr. Raphael
is the only one able to send out the Leapwave, he goes beserk
and orders Gel Sadra to pull the modulation waves of the Leapwave
into his base and to reverse them. This way, he gives the nuclear
missile launch systems a "go" order, with the aim of
provoking a nuclear war. The whole world is plunged into a nuclear
crisis without warning. Raphael has learned this and murmers
"I am the one who called Sosai X from space. I have to take
the responsibility." He then orders Joe to destroy the missiles
of both parties with the antigravitational missile. A nuclear
war is averted by a hair's breadth.
