Only two upsets occurred in the last round. The Liberator struck down the Space Battleship Yamato, and the Colonial Viper crushed the Normandy. We attempted to contact Cmdr. Shepard for comment but none was forthcoming. For the rest it was fairly straight forward, with the higher seeds enjoying a comfortable victory over their competitors.

This round should prove painful for many. The Jupiter Mining Corp faces off against the cream of The Federation. A large cube challenges a blue box. A ship that moves the universe around it attempts to upset a ship whose speed is measured in distance. And a leaf on the wind confronts a slightly insane survey vessel.
