Once taken to the Deka Base, Carrie reveals to Tetsu that she has relevant info on the Kruger case, with Tetsu calling Ban to Earth to personally escort the witness to the Space Prosecution Office on planet Gowashichoru. Though Umeko believes Kruger is innocent, she is mortified by how the rest of his team not wanting to prove his innocence. But when Ban is ordered to return to his branch on orders from the Galactic District Police Bureau chief Kight Reidlich, Tetsu decides to have his team oversee the escort. But the escort ship is sent crashing onto the barren planet Riiyo where the Dekarangers fend off the Mechanoids before Deka Blue runs off with Deka Green following him to the Mechanoids' ship while Umeko learns that Assam and Mugi are part of the party keeping Carrie from reaching Gowashichoru as they take her to their boss. But as Umeko finds out, "Carrie" revealed to be Ban in disguise for the real one to reach her destination safely, she and Sen were kept in the dark as the rest of their team have been working to clear Kruger's death by exposing the real murderer of Carrie's father: Kight Reidlich.
