"I'm here on Morag. Ain't no Orb, ain't no you."
"Well, I was in the neighborhood. I thought I'd save you the hassle."
Yondu Udonta and Star-Lord[src]

The Battle of Morag was a confrontation between Star-Lord, who had come to Morag to find the Orb, and a group of Sakaarans led by Korath the Pursuer, who had been sent to retrieve the Orb by Ronan the Accuser.

The Orb stored in the Temple Vault on Morag

The Orb was hidden with the Power Stone stored inside, on the planet Morag, storing it in a secret temple that was hidden beneath the planet's vast ocean. The ocean eventually receded every 300 years, making the tomb accessible.[3]

The Yondu Ravager Clan were hired by the Broker to recover the Orb from Morag. In an attempt to separate from the Ravagers, Peter Quill traveled to Morag alone to recover the Orb.[1]

Star-Lord collects the Orb

"Quill said he stole the Power Stone from Morag."
"Is that a person?"
"No, Quill's a person. Morag's a planet."
Rocket Raccoon and War Machine[src]

Peter Quill entered the Temple Vault and retrieved the Orb from the containment device with a Gravity Mine. However, Korath the Pursuer arrived with a group of Sakaarans that were sent to retrieve the Orb for Ronan the Accuser. The Sakaarans surround Quill and Korath demanded the Orb. Quill turned the Orb over but kicked a Plasma Sphere at the two Sakaarans which broke and disintegrated them. Quill shot Korath with his Quad Blasters and retrieved the Orb. Korath got to his feet and shot at Quill who ducked and escaped through the hole in the wall created by the blast using his Jet Boots.

Quill quickly headed for the Milano as Korath pursued him. Quill then threw a Gravity Mine near the Sakaarans guarding the Milano, pulling them to the ground and allowing Quill to enter the ship. Quill was able to lift off and dodge several blasts from the Necroblaster canon. The Milano is caught in a geyser before Quill is able to escape into space.[1]
