Hot-headed Carol Danvers, in her new guise as Binary, and angry over the horror done by the Sith to the X-Men, impulsively blasts out of the Shi'ar starship, leaving the X-Men with one hole of a problem. As a temporary measure, Colossus blocks that hole.
Lilandra, through Nighcrawler, is dispatched to the ship's command center to activate the repair systems.
Wolverine and Cyclops cut a piece of material to seal the breach.
All of this is coordinated by Cyclops.
Ah, the X-Mansion being used as it should be: chilling out on a summer afternoon.
As for nerdy me, I'll be in the library. Unlike the others, the Professor is having a bad time of it - worried sick about the X-Men - he does receive crucial information that will eventually lead to the formation of the New Mutants.
Just like Binary, Ororo has run away, but for a different reason. Storm knows that a Brood egg is inside her and so she had to get away. While in the depths of space this happens.
But Ororo manages to regain control.
After thinking of her options, Ororo destroys her ship and attempts to commit suicide.
Speaking of suicide:
Looking in on Peter and Kitty.
Uh-oh. Kitty is all of fourteen. Of course, if you want to go all legal about it, Earth laws don't apply in a Shi'ar starship. Nonetheless, the pair very wisely backs out of this situation.
At this point, Ororo starts appearing in ghostly form all throughout the ship. Prior to this, the X-Men were sort of just waiting around, half-resigned to their horrible fate. Brings to mind Mr. Micawber's sentiments from David Copperfield, "something will turn up". Well, looks like something is turning up, what that something is? We don't know just yet.
On top of all this, the X-Men's ship encounter one of the sentient Brood starships - known as an Acanti.
