"Beginning of the End" (もうグレてやる!!パンの家出! Mō Gurete Yaru!! Pan no Iede!?, lit. "I'm Running Away!! Pan's Desertion?!") is the fifteenth episode of the Black Star Dragon Ball Saga and the fifteenth overall episode of Dragon Ball GT. This episode first aired in Japan on June 12, 1996. Its original American airdate was April 16, 2005.
Giru detects a Black Star Dragon Ball on the desert planet, Rudeeze. While the team is flying to the planet, Trunks suggests going back to Earth to replace Pan with Goten which upsets Pan as she thinks that she is being unhelpful. When they land, they are overwhelmed by the deserts heat and soon after a giant Sandipede attacks them and damages their ship causing their water to spill out.
While Trunks is fixing it, Pan attempts to help but Trunks tells her to go play inside the ship. She succumbs to her anger and storms off into the desert in search of the Dragon Ball to prove how useful she is. Later, Giru goes after her. After a while, Pan succumbs to dehydration and heat exhaustion, and is attacked by another Sanipede. Giru arrives just in time to save her by fending it off.
When she comes to, she finds out that he also found the five-star ball and water, and she emotionally thanks Giru and apologizes for treating him so badly. When Goku and Trunks arrive, they find a nearby oasis, and use the water to refill the broken cooling tanks, and ultimately reconsider replacing Pan with Trunks apologizing for his comment and saying that she is an important member of the team.
