Technical and Historical Notes

The Space Dolphin was a space use labor that did not actually exist. When SV2 member Asuma Shinohara fell asleep while hearing a story about the Crime Labor Attack Team, or CLAT, he concocted his own version. In Asuma’s dream, the Creature from Luna Attack Team defended Earth against alien invaders. The Space Dolphin served as the first line of defense. SV2 Division 1 Capt. Shinobu Nagumo played the part of Space Dolphin pilot in Asuma’s dream, and her team was shot down when an alien fleet invaded.
