(Fireteam Mesa arrives in Canterlot, where it is swarming with Changelings and full of Space Pirates.)
Buck: Hargrove's forces have allied themselves with Chrysalis' Changeling Offspring. Bring them down and secure Canterlot.
Freeze: Copy all, Buck. (Opens the back of the pelican.)
Harper: Ugh. I hate these disgusting pricks.
Kimball: You aren't the only one, Harper.
Freeze: Let's move! Frost, with me!
(Freeze and Frost move to deal with the Space Pirates on the ground while Kimball and Harper deal with the Changeling swarm in the air.)
Mustang: Queen Chrysalis is inside the castle. Secure it so we can bring Celestia back home.
(The team meets up with Buck and Carolina at the castle.)
Buck: She's in here.
Carolina: Giving the boot. Stand back!
(Carolina busts the door down. They see Chrysalis in the foyer.)
Chrysalis: Well. I thought I'd never get to see you.
Freeze: The feeling ain't mutual, Queen! Give up!
Space Pirate: Fuck off!
Chrysalis: Destroy them!
(Chrysalis runs off into the throne room. The team kills off the Pirates and Changelings in the foyer. They catch Chrysalis.)
Chrysalis: You never quit, do you?! (Blasts magic at Freeze. Freeze dashes out of the way.)
Freeze: No. I guess not.
(Freeze sees Rarity Sci-Twi inside a cacoon.)
Chrysalis: You're interested in that human aren't you?
Freeze: Mesa, secure Twilight!
Chrysalis: Destroy them!!
(Freeze and Chrysalis engage in a fierce fight. Harper, Frost, and Buck kill most of the enemies while Kimball and Carolina free Sci-Twi.)
Carolina: Are you okay?
Sci-Twi: I'm fine. Thanks.
(Freeze successfully finishes off Chrysalis and the Changelings and Space Pirates retreat.)
Sunset: (comms) All friendly teams, enemy forces lost a commander and are retreating. We are no longer on the defensive. Consolidate and counter-attack!
Team Leader: This is ODA Foxtrot! The Pirates and Changelings are disengaging! We've got them on their heels!!
(Later, back on Infinity.)
Princess Celestia: I'm grateful for your hard work for all these years, James.
Mustang: Thank you, Princess.
Freeze: Dad. Princess.
Princess Celestia: Good morning, Derrick.
Mustang: You did good securing Canterlot, son.
Princess Celestia: You've put together a great team, Derrick.
Freeze: Thanks, Princess.
(Spartan Sarah Palmer arrives)
Palmer: Princess, Captain Lasky needs to see you all.
Princess Celestia: Tell him and the guard ponies that I will be there momentarily.
Palmer: Yes, Ma'am.
Mustang: Let's go see what he wants.
(As the trio leaves, Freeze notices Mich in the infirmary with a serious head ache. They arrive on the bridge.)
Mustang: What did you find, Captain?
(Lasky pull up a report of the Staff of Charon dropping Mantises to destroy a colony.)
Lasky: He destroyed another colony.
Mustang: I think it's time to do this. Captain, let's find him by any means necessary!
(Mustang and Freeze leaves.)
Lasky: What's the problem, Princess?
Celestia: I'm worried about what will happen after Hargrove is dealt with.
