Chapter I is the first episode of the Dreams of the Morning, Songs of the Night arc of the first series of the Legend of Galactic Heroes Gaiden OVA.



In April 793 UC (484 IC / 3593 CE), Reinhard von Müsel and Siegfried Kircheis, while waiting for their next assignment, visits their alma mater in Odin. They are warmly welcomed by the students there, who respect them greatly. After observing the school for a day, Reinhard and Kircheis finally receive their new assignments in the Imperial Military Police. The next day, while browsing through the archives in the Military Police headquarters, Reinhard discovers a case handled by Ulrich Kesler during his tenure as a military police and is impressed by his unorthodox method of protecting ordinary civilians from the oppression of the Military Police. However, when he finds out that Kesler's efforts were ultimately futile, he breaks out into a rant about the degenerate state of the Galactic Empire that is only cut short by new orders from the Chief of Military Police. He and Kircheis are ordered to return to their alma mater to investigate the apparent murder of Karl von Reifeisen, a student who died the night before.


Memorable quotes

"Genes decide everything? How ridiculous. Individuals are not responsible for their genes. Individuals are individuals. Family lines or genetics have nothing to do with the abilities of the individual. People who believe that genes decide everything are truly worthless people who can only do what they are told. People who boast of their ancestry have nothing that they can boast about in themselves. Those people are the ones that I truly disrespect."

Reinhard von Müsel
