One thing seems clear with the opening of the third episode: the writers are big fans of the Western science fiction franchise Star Trek. To the point where the opening to the episode is a parody of the well-known beginning to that storied show.

Yes. Those of you who have wondered where your next fix of unrepentant fanservice would be coming from, wonder no more. As we have all female body types and stereotypes prepared and ready for you in tight-fitting school swimsuits for your viewing pleasure. So, the Catians have chosen to approach the Japanese Foreign Ministry wearing school swimsuits, as they apparently read that it is one of the best outfits on the planet.
