A Shi'ar Grand Council meeting was raided and Lilandra
was kidnapped and all the evidence portrayed the Starjammers
as the conspirators. The Starjammers' trail ended on Earth. Chancellor Araki
and Lord Samédàr, led a Shi'ar fleet to Earth in search of Lilandra. To prepare Lord Samédàr for the ensuing battle, the Chancellor provided him with battle footage of the mutant X-Men
of Earth, although Samédàr foolishly disregarded the information. Unknown to Chancellor Araki, Admiral Lord Samédàr was approached by Cal'syee
(Deathbird) to kill her sister, Majestrix Lilandra and destroy the Earth.
