Synopsis:
Rom flies to the location of Galador in a borrowed Skrull spaceship only to discover his planet is no longer there; Instead, he finds Nova and Powerhouse who are currently defending the planet of Xandar from a Skrull invasion (and are a little leery of a giant robot in a Skrull ship); Rom returns with Nova and assists in fighting off the Skrulls; In return, the Prime Thoran of Xandar discovers that the entire Golden Galaxy has been moved and transports Rom home to Galador's new stellar coordinates; With the Skrull threat neutralized, Richard Ryder is returned to Earth without his Nova powers.
