Synopsis
The X-Men and Starjammers race to try and repair their ship in time to contact Chancellor Araki and tell him they have rescued Lilandra so he doesn't have to destroy the Earth. Little do they know that Samedar, a secret ally of Deathbird's, has killed Araki and plans on blowing up the planet anyway. Xavier tries to telepathically contact Kurt and Kitty who are on the Shi'ar ship but slips into a Brood induced coma. In order to delay Samedar's explosive plans, Kitty runs around the ship impersonating Dark Phoenix to spread fear and confusion among the Shi'ar.
