Zarbon wonders why Dodoria hasn't returned, but Frieza is unconcerned. Vegeta, using his new earthbound abilities, senses Gohan, Krillin, and Dende in the distance. Gohan and Krillin lower their ki enough to avoid being detected further, but Dende doesn't know how to. Before Vegeta can home in on Dende's power, a giant Namekian fish appears, giving Vegeta the thought that it was the source of ki he detected. He later comes across a village of 20 or so Namekians, and demands to be given the Dragon Ball. When the elder Namek of the village denies him the dragon ball, Vegeta slays all the Nameks and finds the dragon ball in one of the huts. He then proceeds to throw it in a nearby lake so that Frieza and his men cannot find it. He then proceeds to look for the remaining stray Dragon Ball. Meanwhile, Krillin and Gohan realize that Vegeta's about to head to the Eldest Namek's Spire, so they fly to that location.
