If there was a reason why he's deserting, I didn't quite catch it (Then
again, I'm the one who had no idea why Kou acted the way he did in entire
episode 13). Also, while he does say he's deserting, he never specified
where he's deserting to. I'm not sure what he's trying to accomplish. I
mean, if he's trying to go after Apsaras III in damaged Ez-8 on foot,
there's no way he can catch it in time. According to Fed simulation,
Apsaras III can fly out to space by itself!

In episode 9, Sanders was the one who was secretly ordered from top to
keep an eye on Shiro. Maybe he lost a trust from the top, after he told
Shiro about that.

Hey now, leave Shiro alone. He took a lot of flak after Apsaras II
incident. He's been treated like a spy from everyone except his teammate.
