- "Ah, my good aristh. I don't want to take the chance of injuring you. Visser Four would be very upset if I injured the creatures who have been causing Visser Three such trouble on Earth. Vissers Three and Four are such close friends. Just remain calm. It will all be over in a moment. And you will all be... guests... of the Yeerk Empire."
- ―Captain Samilin-Corrath-Gahar to Aximili-Esgarrouth-Isthill
When Samilin accidentally picked up the Animorphs in Zero space on their way to Leera, he presented himself as just another Andalite captain until they arrived at the planet. During the subsequent attack, he crashed the ship and cut off his tactical officer's tail, intending to hand the Animorphs over to Visser Four, but he was crucially distracted when Cassie, who was hiding on his back as a flea, began to demorph back to human, drawing Samilin's attention long enough for Ax to disarm him and his now-conscious T.O. to disintegrate him with his discarded Shredder.
