Carol also is taken from the mirror universe, which then turns out to be a traitor.
Then there appears a girl from mirror universe called Over-Intendent Selena, who hijacked ship 07 with Carol and she wishes to use it as a weapon of a war in her world.

Things are complicated when the Suliban try to change history: on April 4, 2011, a Suliban starts a relationship with Kimberly, and as the story that told Ɛ, she never would have boyfriend. In the end, Kimberly breaks off with Paul Archer, the Suliban who pretends to be human, because Kimberly discovered that he's an alien. Then she decided to join to the FEF, she discovers that she has a sister in the future called Newecy and a daughter from another timeline called İrene. Newecy stays with her sister, and later she decides to study in Teremedó. Now it seems that the timeline is changed, and the third series of Planetes ends with a mix of timelines and ends in another in which is told in SerieStar4, Ɛ from XXXI century and Miral Paris from XXV century have said that is correct.
In this new timeline, Josep Maria # began to study in a school that in the original timeline never was. In his first year, in his class there was a girl called Erika, who in reality is an unknown alien disguised as human that attempts to destroy the Teremedosians. They captured her for examination in the FEF 07. Shortly after, in the summer of 2012, the 07 is absorbed by a fracture in the subspace that leads to the year 2412 and into the original timeline. There they find a ship called USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-F), and an Enterprise crewman, Ensign Miral Paris, had been studying the secret Federation Starfleet of XXI century. There they discover their future in the original timeline, and they also discover that Erika reincarnated in a 12 year old girl, Annika Caetano, wants to destroy the universe as we know it and create a universe under her control. With the unexpected help of Erika, attain to detain Annika Caetano because Erika does that his version of the future go into a vortex and she ceases to exist. And also with the help of Erika, go back to his century and to his timeline. This is shown in the film Planetes III: Between Two Time.
In the year 2013, Josep Maria 18 and the crew of the spaceship FEF 07 discover that the species of Erika in reality is a very important species for the universe, since they have created all the energy that exists. But some unknown entities have exterminated all her species, leaving only two girls: Erika and another girl, named Velika (Велика). This last girl is somewhere at the southeast of Europe, but Josep Maria 18 only saw her by chance in an excursion that he did with his father, and the FEF lost her trace. The entities that want to destroy Erika and Velika (Велика) to exterminate the species are unknown, but Josep Maria 18 discovers that a life form that it wouldn't have exist is the one who can exterminate the species. This life form is the Golden Creation, that at present take form of a girl of his age and that goes to his church, named Kirannis. But she doesn't know anything of her powers, and there are some entities behind her that are those who handle it everything. The FEF wants to be neutral to this clash, but they will be forced to collaborate when there isn't another remedy. Besides, the entities that they are controlling Golden Creation can do perception filters, that are people or elements that in reality don't exist but everybody sees them and thinks that they're real. The unknown entities use these filters to deceive FEF officials, and especially Josep Maria 18. Then they decide to join with more people: the McClain sisters (China, Lauryn and Sierra), and a friend of Josep Maria 18's church: Lorena. Besides, Lina and Rutitto go back to help his ancient friends. Also they discover that another friend of Josep Maria 18's church, Melvin, has a granddaughter that she will be a time traveller more important that Dany. İhi creates new inventions to be able to understand this war and resolve all the enigmas. But Erika doesn't know that Velika (Велика) is alive and thinks that she is the last, and doesn't want to believe what Josep Maria 18 is saying. This is shown in the film Planetes IV: The Energy of the Universe.
Later, when the ship FEF 09 is inaugurated in 2015, 0 became captain of the ship FEF 07 together with Carla as Commander and First Officer, and the rest of the crew moved to the new ship FEF 09. 0, in addition to Carla (and Franny), has also in ship 07 two new crewmen who serve under his orders: Ruttito and Maray, since a short time ago they returned to the FEF. In the film Planetes V: Your name on Earth, İhi finishes her relation with his boyfriend, because she loses her memory about the FEF and remains on Earth like a normal girl. Then Josep Maria 20 wants something more with Lauryn. And during this film, Josep Maria 20 is in love with Alexandra and later with Sandra López. For some time 20 was seeing Andrea at his university, but he saw that something wasn't quite right. 20 always suspected that this Andrea was the regent from the mirror universe and her counterpart is imprisoned by the regent at some unknown place. Ann discovers that the Regent, who everybody believed that she had died with her helicopter, somehow managed escape alive and is now making her double's life on Earth from the prime universe, to get information about 20 and FEF, and she's also possibly working in the group of the Golden Creation and Yusma, and she could be one of the girls of Yusma. Later, Teremedó reports that Selena from Mirror Universe who was prisoner in Bàrcinon, was killed by Andrea because she thought Selena was a threat for her plans. Meanwhile, Andrea told 20 that a girl from the old school where 20 and Prime Universe's Andrea studied, named Marina, also studies at 20's university, but he can't ﬁnd her anywhere. It could be a lie by Andrea to make 20 go find Marina and no longer worry about what she does. Later it is discovered that she is a perception filter, and Marina never existed. Then 20 discovers that Lina and all his companions who were with him in Tekoda lost their memory, as Lauryn, China and Kimberly. 20 thinks his teammates will also cease to exist, but Andrea says that what Erika said about the memory loss is false, and says she no longer belongs to the collection of Yusma's girls. The officers of ship 09 have lost Lina as commander and ﬁrst officer, and therefore 20 decides to promote Pumiky to commander and ﬁrst officer of 09. A few months later, Ann discovers that the terrorist attacks on Earth are organized by the regent Andrea, and all these terrorist attacks also happen on the FEF planets or in other planets that help the FEF. But there aren't attacks on Teremedó, and the motive is unknown. 21 already knew, and says that the planet Teremedó is unstable, and says he doesn't know how long the FEF will last. At the end of the film, the ship FEF 09 has a new Warp drive which have been installed in Teremedó, but when they activate this Warp drive, the ship disappears and goes to another dimension with Pumiky and Ann, which results that it's the original timeline in a future period. Josep Maria 21 knew it because he felt it when he was with Robert, but he ends up doing nothing because he must let things happen as they must happen, or he could change the original timeline too. And Josep Maria 21 seems that he's changing, and they don't know if all of this is influenced by Golden Creation.
In the film Planetes VI: Alone in an Ordinary World, the ship FEF 09 has disappeared. Later, Vulcan, Gobola and all the Talos system are destroyed by the new enemy of the film, which has teamed up with Andrea and manage to overthrow the Federation Starfleet. Without the FEF, Josep Maria 22/23 only has as support the ship FEF 07 under the command of Captain 0, twin brother of the former admiral of the Earth. But without the protection of friends who they had, former Federation Starfleet officers are in a dead end, and and they have to prevent Andrea and her new partner from activating a machine that will destroy Teremedó. Also, enemies will ally with the Teremedosian enemy of Josep Maria 22/23, Alxy Frankz, who will help Andrea even though his own planet will be destroyed. Can they save Teremedó, the only planet that is on the side of Admiral Josep Maria 22/23?
After the events of the film Planetes II: The Creator of the Show, the future Josep Maria 24 remains in the year 2010 to try to fix the timeline, and works independent without speaking with his young version and with the Federation Starfleet. During this time, 25 goes to the limbo because Annika Caetano somehow has survived in a television series named ANT Farm. 25 appears when the series will finish in 2014 and kills China, the protagonist of the series who in reality was Annika, with laser arrows. When she is dead, he absorbs her energy reducing and eating her body.
Again in the real world, the 25 continues with his plan to stop the Sulibans. However, he fails and the Sulibans succeed with his aim. 25, after his failure, tries to go back in time with the camera that allows him to travel in time, to go back to try to fix the history again. The vortex collapses, the camera is absorbed by the vortex and suddenly 25 arrives at November 11th, 2007. Some bullies steal his camera, and 25 points them a Phaser and wants these boys to return him the camera. The bullies don't accept and they begin a fight which 25 loses, they disarm him and one of them stabs 25 mortally. The bullies escape and leave 25 with his Phaser dying on the ground. With this knife wound, he'll die, but suddenly his hands light and from him emerges an energy which begins to cure his wound: 25 regenerates like Annika's species. But in the middle of the process, before turning a baby, 25 stops the process and now he has a different appearance: higher, stronger and braver, although has the same hair and is very resembled to his original form. He takes his Phaser and pursues the bullies, stuns the one who was taking the camera and says to the others to escape or he'll stun them too. The camera falls on the ground and spoils a bit, but 25 takes it and gets off from this time.
Later, it's discovered that 26 has taken the name of Robert, says that he comes from Bulgaria and becomes Sandra López's boyfreind, since some time ago he fell in love with her, but in reality Robert tries to make 21 have a relationship with Sandra to avoid him from wanting to be with Andrea, and that is why Robert kisses Sandra to make her fall in love with 21 by a Teremedosian mind meld, since 21 is in love with Andrea. And Robert also has come to avoid a thing which will happen to Sandra in the future: she'll be murdered by Andrea, as her double from Mirror Universe. And he wants to change the history and avoid it… Now he's bald. All this is showed in the films Planetes V: Your name on Earth and Planetes VI: Alone in an Ordinary World.
