Chapter I is the first episode of The Mutineer arc of the second series of the Legend of Galactic Heroes Gaiden OVA.



In August 791 UC (482 IC / 3591 CE), following their transfer out of Kapche-Lanka, Reinhard von Müsel and Siegfried Kircheis are posted to the destroyer Hameln II, currently docked in Iserlohn Fortress, as its chief navigator and security officer respectively. While the captain of the Hameln II is impressed of their achievements and welcomed them on board, the rest of the crew are less than enthusiastic, especially the enlisted ranks, who view Reinhard's position as a blatant example of nepotism. They then decide to test Reinhard by pitting him with another young enlistee, Rolf Saider, on a spacewalk challenge. However, when Rolf lands himself into trouble during the spacewalk, Reinhard risks his life to save him, thus earning him the respect of the enlisted ranks.



Background information

The pipe and musical notes in the insignia of Hameln II is probably a reference to the Pied Piper of Hamelin (Rattenfänger von Hameln in the original German).
