Bulma begins preparing the spaceship for Goku’s journey. Gohan decides to go, as well, because he can help Goku find the Black Star Dragon Balls. Pan is very disappointed that she cannot go because she’s too young. Everyone has been treating her like a child lately, and she is getting frustrated. When it’s time for blast-off, Vegeta decides that Trunks and Goten should go instead of Gohan, because in his eyes, the two of them have gotten soft in this time of peace. This means that Trunks will be relieved of his duties as president of Capsule Corp and Goten can cancel his date. While Goten is saying goodbye to his girlfriend, Trunks and Goku board the ship, only to find that Pan has snuck into the control room. She hits the blast-off button before Goten can climb aboard. Now Goku, Trunks, and Pan begin their adventure as Goten can finally go back to dating his girlfriend.
