After The Captain recovers the Syreen Penetrator ships from the vault on Epsilon Camelopardalis I-A, Talana is finally able to implement her planned revenge against the Mycon, who have turned the Syreen's homeworld, Syra, into a Shattered World about 80 years ago.

The planet Organon I was ranked a close second to Gaia by habitability in the Ur-Quan Kzer-Za's stellar charts, and since the Mycon prefer life-rich Water Worlds for turning into Shattered Worlds, Talana surmises that this planet is the best place for an ambush. The Captain is tasked with recommending Organon I for colonization to the Mycon at Epsilon Scorpii I. The Mycon, who have great difficulty understanding deception, send the Birthing Fleet there; the Syreen fleet is hiding behind the moon of the planet, waiting for the best moment to attack. In the meantime, while most of the Mycon fleet is away, The Captain is able to steal the Sun Device from Beta Brahe I.

When the Birthing Fleet approaches Organon I, they break combat formation and disperse around the planet, preparing to implant the Deep Children. When the Penetrators charged at them, they refused to abandon the slow Deep Children, remaining in the gravity well; in the ensuing chaos, most Podships were destroyed, either by their own plasmoids or by the Penetrators — Talana hints that the Syreen Song was used extensively during the battle, as an ultimate tool of revenge.

Although the Mycon lose a significant portion of their fleet in this battle, they maintain a positive outlook when asked about it by The Captain, claiming that the setback is just an "unforeseen delay" and that the Deep Children will be eventually born, as Juffo-Wup is inevitable. It is not known whether they actually succeed in implanting the Deep Child, though Organon I remains a Water World for the rest of the game.
