Synopsis:
Rom leads Galactus to the Dark Nebula and invites him to feast on the Wraith's home universe. Galactus tries every trick in his arsenal to consume Wraith World but is almost destroyed by the toxic planet. Furious at his failure to eat, yet amused by Rom's ingenuity in trying to defeat him, Galactus decides to allow Rom and his companions to live. In retaliation, however, he relocates Galador to an unknown sector of space, leaving the Spaceknights stranded with no idea of how to get home.
