The Garrison space station's defense forces fight back when they come under Galbeston (Drule) attack. One gunner fires his three-barelled laser gun (Figure 2). An explosion rips through a rear section of a Garrison ship after it is shot at, killing several officers (Figure 3). An explosion rips through the console of another Garrison ship, killing the two officers at the helm (Figure 4).

After several Garrison attack ships launch from the space station, they fly into formation, one of them gliding into view (Figure 5). Several of the ships explode after being shot at (Figure 6). In one of the ships, the pilot realises what is about to happen to him (Figure 7) ...

and is unable to do anything when explosions rip through his cockpit, killing him (Figure 8). In what appears to be either a cel layering error or editing error on the DXV editors' part, a space station laser gun powers up and eventually fires, a transparent shot of the same laser gun placed over the firing gun (Figure 9). Courtesy of the Combat Machine (Robeast), an explosion tears through a section of the space station, killing two Garrison officers (Figure 10).

A small explosion at his console knocks a space station gunner out of his seat (Figure 11). The gunner meets his fate when the Combat Machine (Robeast) destroys his laser turret (Figure 12). When the Combat Machine (Robeast) breaks breaks through the space station, he is greeted by an armed and firing welcoming commitee. The Combat Machine (Robeast) takes out the first three officers by blasting and destroying the balcony they are on, killing them (Figure 13).

The Combat Machine (Robeast) proceeds to destroy a docked Garrison ship, the resulting explosion knocking two officers back, but it's not clear if they are killed or not (Figure 14). The Combat Machine (Robeast) moves further into the space station but comes across another group of Garrison officers who are trying to stop him from progressing. The Combat Machine (Robeast) opens fire on them, killing the fleeing officers in an explosion (Figure 15). Other officers attempt to stop the Galbeston (Drule) robot monster with their laser rifles, which are ineffective. The Combat Machine (Robeast) returns fire (Figure 16) ...

Two officers inside the reactor meet their deaths when their control panel explodes thanks to laser fire from the Combat Machine (Robeast) (Figure 19).
