Crash on Story Mode Episode 2 "The End of Eternal Domination"

I'm playing on PC. I have tried the episode 2 story quest "The End of Eternal Domination" hardcore 3 times, it always crashes when I got into the teleporter after defeating Apos Dorios.

Dark Falz Luther Urgent Quest also crashed

same problem here /sigh

don't know if this will help for anyone else, but the solution for me was to repair my instillation of PSO2, a small number of files were apparently borked, after they were redownloaded everything worked fine
