Ayesha, the High Priestess of the Sovereign people and their leader, hired the Guardians of the Galaxy in order to kill an interdimensional monster called the Abilisk, which was eating Anulax Batteries. After the battling and defeating the monster, the Guardians meant to give the batteries for the Sovereign: However, Rocket Raccoon decided to take some of the batteries for himself.
After Ayesha discovered that Rocket Raccoon had stolen the Anulax Batteries from the Sovereign, she sent a fleet of drones after the Guardians of the Galaxy. The Guardians, realizing they were outnumbered, decided to head for a hyperspace warp, which involved flying through a quantum asteroid field, where the asteroids quantum tunnel around and flicker in and out of existence as if they randomly teleported, making it very dangerous to fly through the area.
Star-Lord and Rocket barely manage to maneuver through the field while most of the Omnicrafts were destroyed, except for one piloted by Zylak. Due to an argument, the Milano was struck by several asteroids and shots fired from the drone, preventing the spaceship to retaliate as the weapons systems had been damaged.
Drax then put on a spacesuit, grabbed a gun, and tethering himself to the ship, flew out into space and successfully shot down the last drone. However, as the Milano flew out of the asteroid field, they were attacked by even more Sovereign drones that went around the field, and the ship was even more heavily damaged. Suddenly, the drones were all destroyed in a single strike by a mysterious figure on another spacecraft.
After the confrontation, the Guardians' ship crashed on a nearby planet Berhert due to the damage sustained. On Berhert, the Guardians met the mysterious figure that had destroyed the Sovereign fleet which was revealed to be Ego, a Celestial who turned out to be Peter Quill's father.
