This is the 38th episode of the Legend of Sapphire series.
Amethyst and Onyx find out that Dragon Opal has gained control over Homeworld and must decide on what to do about this.
The episode starts on Dragon Opal's ship with Onyx finally being freed by Amethyst from the prison block. With Onyx freed they needed to find a way to stop Dragon Opal and the ship before things get worse. They started by walking down the hall keeping a sharp eye out for any of Dragon Opal's soldiers or her top fighters, Tiger Eye and Amber. They found a massive set of doors not knowing if this would lead to the bridge or not and went inside. They found themselves in the engine room where the ship's power was coming from. They walked through the maze of engine and pipes hoping to find and exit or something that would lead them to the bridge but all it is was a massive confusion for navigation. They stayed close in case there was anything that was in the engine room that would prove as a threat and from around the corner was a group of dragon soldiers. Onyx quickly drawed his staff and Amethyst summoned her whip ready to engage into battle. Onyx approached the soldiers and fired waves of dark energy at the dragon soldiers which damaged them pretty good but they began to fire their gem rifles at him. Amethyst then came in front of Onyx and spun her whips rapidly backing the shots from the gem rifles. Unfortunately, Amethyst was starting to slow down her whips and soon they would be hit by their shots. Onyx decided then to change into a shadow form and snuck behind the dragon soldiers then reappear. Onyx then uses his dark magic to wipe out the dragon soldiers and Amethyst was finally safe from their fire. Amethyst finally stopped spinning her whip and went to Onyx so they could continue their search for the control bridge. They walked through the engine room and noticed there was a cat walk system above them and that there was also a door at the catwalk. It was about 4 stories high so it wouldn't be that easy to get to the top but Amethyst noticed all of the pipes that were everywhere and had an idea. She summoned another whip and gave it to Onyx but when he touched the handle, it completely vanished. Amethyst then told Onyx to grab onto her and she wrapped her whip around one of the pipes. Onyx kneeled down and wrapped his arms around her and Amethyst then used her whip to launch herself up. Onyx was suprisingly light for Amethyst so navigating with her whip wasn't that hard to do. She used her whip on more and more pipes till she was able to reach the catwalk at the top and Onyx then let go. They were about to walk through the catwalk door but unfortunately for them, more dragon soldiers came into the engine room preparing to open fire.
Onyx noticed this and quickly, he created a force field using dark matter based magic to deflect the shots from the dragon soldiers. The force field not only protected Onyx and Amethyst but it also deflected the shots causing them to hit the soldiers instead. One by one, each one got hit by its own shot until there was no soldier left to fight against them. Once they were done, he took down the force field and both Onyx and Amethyst went through the exit to continue their search for the control bridge. They found themselves into a new hallway and took a look down it seeing if there was anything that could help them find the bridge but they couldn't find anything that would help them. They found another set of doors and decided to take a look inside which they found the defenses room which they thought could help them find out where they were on the ship. They looked around and saw different turret concels that would allow the battle turrets to fire back against foes. Amethyst then noticed a hologram version of the ship and she told Onyx to take a look at this with her. It was hologramed and they were able to see the interior of the ship which which proved to be very useful. There was many buttons around this which each one said a different room on the ship so Onyx pressed the command bridge. The hologram got bigger and showed the directions that would lead to the bridge which was suprisingly closer than they thought. They had to go down the hall to the elevators and travel to the top floor then travel down the hallway on the left which would lead them to the command bridge. Onyx got it down by memory and told Amethyst to stay close by him when they go through the ship so Amethyst held onto him tight. Onyx told her that he loved it when they were close like that but it wasn't the time to be that close to each other. She back up a little but still stayed close to him and they went outside of the defenses room back into the hallway. They looked around to make sure that there was no soldiers around then took a sprint for the elevators. Amethyst quickly pressed the button for the elevator but when it got to them, there was a group of dragon soldiers inside of the elevator and begin to open fire at Onyx and Amethyst. Onyx created a dark matter shield to protect them and Amethyst used her whip to disarmed one of the soldiers and took its gun. She then opened fire back at the soldiers eliminating them all from their fight and with that done Amethyst and Onyx walked back into the the elevator and began to go up.
The elevator was traveling at a decent rate so they would be able to reach the top in time but as they were going up they heard something crash at the top. They didn't know what it was but they knew that it was not going to be good for them. Suddenly without warning, the elevator came to a screeching halt and neither Onyx or Amethyst knew why this was happening. They then noticed a laser going through the top so Amethyst and Onyx moved to the edge of the elevator. The laser made a circle on the ceiling and as soon as the circle was complete 2 dragon soldiers jumped down and aimed their guns at both Amethyst and Onyx. Amethyst reacted quickly and used her whip to disarm one of them then blasted them both with the ray gun. Onyx then decided to jump up through the hole and see what was causing the elevator to stop working. Onyx went up and noticed two poles each on one jamed in the gears that lifted the elevator were causing all of their issues. Onyx walked over and tried to remove one of the pipes but 6 dragon soldiers jumped down from the upper hatch onto the elevator preparing to finish Onyx off. The soldiers charged their guns but Onyx was too quick for them and managed to beat them all using his bare hands. He then walked back to the pipe and using all of his might pulled it out of the gear then walked over to deal with the other pipe. He took it out with all of his might which made the elevator go up again. Onyx then jumped back into the hole seeing Amethyst, still inside not harmed. Amethyst asked what was causing the elevator to stop and Onyx told her everything from the pipes to the soldiers. Amethyst got worried for Onyx but was relived the he was safe and soon the elevator reached the top and finally they reached the hallway that would lead them to the control bridge. They walked down the hall and found at the end of the hall a massive set of double doors that would lead them to the control bridge. Onyx and Amethyst approached them and tried to open then but no matter how hard they tried they were not able to open it. Suddenly, the speakers turned on and it was Amber speaking to Onyx and Amethyst. She said that they will never make it to the bridge no matter how hard they tried and when she was done the doors opened and out of it come both Amber and Tiger Eye. They both drew their weapons ready to battle and both Onyx and Amethyst did the same preparing for a brutal fight against them.
Amber breathed a massive wave of fire at Onyx and Amethyst which would have surely killed them if they got hit. Onyx however made a massive shadow field to protect him and Amethyst from any damage done by Amber. Tiger Eye then ran on all fours at them and prepared to pounce on them to shred them with his battle claws. He jumped into the air and let out a massive and impressive roar that even made Amber blush from it. He pounced ontop of Amethyst and was prepared to slash her neck with its blades but before he could Onyx blasted a shadow beam at him knocking him off of his girlfriend. Tiger Eye was furious by Onyx and began slashing and striking at Onyx with complete rage but Onyx was way too quick for him and fires multiple shots at him knocking him out. Amber then went to attack Onyx with her full fury which did cause some damage to him but was no match for Amethyst and her wild style of fighting. With multiple whip strikes, she was weakened for the battle and to top it all of Amethyst tied her up with his whip. With Onyx and Amethyst both victorious, they go into the command bridge to see if they could find anything about Dragon Opal or a way to get off of the ship. They looked around and shockingly there was no one there and the more they searched for answers only more questions came out of it. They found Dragon Opal's bridge throne and notice something shining on it so Amethyst took it and began to chew on it. Onyx giggle from this and asked Amethyst to give the shiny object and without hesitation, she give it to him. He took a look at this small blue and crimson colored crystal and knew what this was at first glance. It was a hologram crystal so he smashed it on the ground and from it was a hologram of Dragon Opal. The hologram began to speak saying that while they were enjoying her ship, she was at Homeworld and with her army overwhelming the defenses and with the help of her dragon-like creatures, she was able to stop all of their armies. She then told something that would truely shock them both by saying that now that their defenses have fallen and with both their king and queen gone, she has taken control of Homeworld as their new empress. Onyx was furious about this and so was Amethyst but before the hologram disappeared in the hologram appeared each of his royal guards, White Diamond, Yellow Diamond, and Blue Diamond. The hologram disappeared now leaving Onyx and Amethyst to make a decision on what to do.
Onyx knew that if they would return to Homeworld now Dragon Opal would have a huge army to back her up. Amethyst however didn't think of this and just wanted to free Homeworld from Dragon Opal unaware of the concequences that could happen. Onyx expained to Amethyst that if they went back, there was little to no chance at defeating her with her newfound army. Amethyst aked what they would do and for once Onyx didn't know what they were going to do. Onyx knew that they had to rescue Homeworld so he told Amethyst that they would return but only when have gotten strong enough to stop Dragon Opal once and for all. Amethyst hugged Onyx tight worried about what would happen to them and to Homeworld and Onyx hugged her back. Onyx then remembered an escape pod on the map so Onyx and Amethyst went out of the control room and ran to the escape pod launching bay. They both got into one of the pods and took off into space ready to head back to Earth. Back on Earth, Purple Topaz was playing tag with Steven and Lapis on the beach trying to find something to do now that Amethyst was gone. Purple Topaz changed into her wolf form and was able to chase Steven down, making him become it. Steven began to chase Lapis but thanks to her water wings she was unable to be caught. They continue their game and suddenly they see something falling from the sky. They watched it and saw it crash down to the beach wondering what this thing from space was. Rose, Garnet, Pearl, Sapphire, and Emerald ran outside hearing the commotion from outside. They slowly approach the object revealing to be one of Dragon Opal's pods so they quickly summoned their weapons. The hatch of the pod opened and when it did they all summoned their weapons ready to battle what ever threat was in that pod. But they were suprised to see that it was Amethyst and Onyx that was inside of the ship. They all put away their weapons and ran over to hug them welcoming them back to Earth. Steven asked why they returned now that they were royalty and Onyx told them the whole story about them, the Diamonds, and finally about Dragon Opal taking control. They were worried about this now that she has a huge empire on her side but Onyx knew that if they all worked together they could stop her once and for all and put an end to the empress once and for all which ends the episode.
