In the Eternal Night (Japanese: 永遠の夜の中で) is the 1st episode of Legend of Galactic Heroes: Die Neue These - Encounter.
January 796 UC (487 IC / 3596 CE): An Imperial expeditionary fleet consisting of more than 20,000 warships under the command of Reinhard von Lohengramm engages the combined Free Planets Alliance 2nd, 4th and 6th Fleets in the Astarte Starzone. Against the advice of his subordinate officers, Reinhard decides on a blitzkrieg strategy, moving to quickly assault the Alliance fleets individually, before they have time to complete their encirclement manoeuvres. Confident in their 2:1 numerical advantage, the Alliance commanders fail to consider Reinhard's move, causing the 4th Fleet and the 6th Fleet to be routed in quick succession, leaving only the now numerically disadvantaged 2nd Fleet to battle the Imperial fleet. After an initial salvo, the Imperial fleet intercepts a fleet-wide transmission broadcasted from the 2nd Fleet flagship Patoroklos. The broadcaster, Yang Wen-li, announces that he has taken over command of the 2nd Fleet after fleet commander Paetta is grievously injured by the initial salvo, and allays the rest of the fleet with a promise that they will not lose as long as they follow his instructions. Reinhard, though mildly amused by the intercepted transmission, is confident of his victory and proceeds to order his fleet to break through the 2nd Fleet. However, as the Imperial fleet cleaves through the 2nd Fleet, Reinhard suddenly notices an anomaly in the Alliance formation...
