- "Necrocraft pilots, enact immolation initiative."
- ―Ronan the Accuser
Korath the Pursuer used a Necrocraft to travel to Morag to obtain the Orb. After the Guardians of the Galaxy escaped from the Kyln, Ronan the Accuser ordered Necrocraft sent to all corners of the quadrant to find the Orb. During the Skirmish on Knowhere, Nebula and Sakaarans used Necrocrafts to chase Gamora. During the Battle of Xandar, the Sakaarans used the Necrocrafts to dive bomb Xandar. One such craft was destroyed by the Yaka Arrow Controller of Yondu Udonta, which also pierced its pilot's heart.
In an alternate timeline 2014, Thanos and his soldiers, including some Sakaarans, traveled through time to 2023 to obtain the six Infinity Stones from the Avengers. Many Necrocrafts were also brought to the future, although they were all turned to dust by Iron Man following the end of the battle.
