Seeking a Free Universe (Japanese: 自由の宇宙を求めて) is the 47th episode of the Legend of Galactic Heroes OVA.


Julian Mintz and friends manage to leave Fezzan on the merchant ship Berezka. When the Berezka is spotted by an Imperial destroyer on patrol, Julian devises a plot to capture the destroyer captain as a hostage and take over the destroyer, which succeeds. Reinhard von Lohengramm organises and briefs his fleet on the invasion plan. The Imperial fleet has a 3 to 1 numerical advantage over the hodgepodge Alliance fleet. The Imperial and Alliance fleets are days away from a battle in the uninhabited Rantemario Starzone.
