Teku apparently has a whole fleet of ships loyal to Ryo that managed to make it out of the coup without dying and he's demanding the return of his emperor. The Raza isn't so interested in giving him back.
Of course, Teku isn't one to come to a negotiation empty handed. He offers them Boone's location, which could also lead them to Portia. They agree not to kill Ryo long enough to check out the location.
Five continues to struggle with the news Ryo dumped on her back on Zairon. She confides in Six that her sister's adoptive mother is none other than Alicia Reynaud, the woman who had all her friends killed over the Blink Drive. Awkward.
Two is also dealing with the fallout of Ryo's truth bombs. Android got into the lock box and found a storage device that's password protected. She did notice one file, though, labeled Croydon, the name of the friend Rebecca/Portia/Two left her daughter with.
When they finally reach their destination they discover a Ferrous Corp shipyard identical to the one they thought they were going to find back in episode five, only this one is full of ships. This is bad news for the galaxy.
One ship against lots and lots and lots of ships is no fair fight, so the Raza Crew brings in some backup. Mikkei and Truffaut provide a white hole bomb which they want the Raza to detonate next to the facility, taking Ferrous out of the war for good.
Nothing ever goes as planned though, and Two, Three and Six get trapped behind enemy lines with a faulty bomb. They were betrayed by Traugott and have been captured by Ferrous. Truffaut bails. It's hard to find good friends in a corporate war.
Six finds and frees Two but she's acting a little off. Who knows what that creepy tech person did to her, but she snaps out of it. Meanwhile, Three and Wexler bring down the field keeping them in and all hell breaks loose.
Two wants revenge. She wants to attack the shipyard and take down Ferrous once and for all, and with Mikkei only able to provide six ships, she turns to an unlikely ally: Ryo. She'll release him in exchange for help winning the war.
Battle time! The Raza drops out of FTL and is joined by Mikkei and the Ishida ships and they begin the assault on the station. Hard to tell who is winning a space battle but there are a lot of explosions.
Scratch that, Ferrous is winning. With Three safely off the ship with Portia (again, go figure), Two decides to sacrifice the Blink Drive and the Marauder to destroy the entire station in one really, really big explosion.
Six detonates the Blink Drive, destroying himself, the Marauder and the station and tearing a hole in space time. This is a bad, bad idea because there's something on the other side of that rift. The alien invasion has begun. The black ships are here.
