X-amining X-Men: The Animated Series 3x06 - Patreon First!

"The Starjammers"

Original Airdate
September 8, 1994

Mark Edward Edens

In the wake of her encounter with Gladiator and the looming presence of Shi'ar Emperor D'Ken, Phoenix announces that the X-Men must fight to save the galaxy. She then transports the X-Men and Lilandra across the stars to Lilandra's spaceship. There, Lilandra explains how the M'Kraan Crystal her brother D'Ken covets and she's stolen has the power to destroy the galaxy, just as the pirate Starjammers attack, declaring their intent to kidnap Lilandra and steal the crystal for themselves. The X-Men intervene, but with Phoenix recovering from the effort of transporting the X-Men, they are overwhelmed, and the Starjammers make off with the crystal as well as a captive Cyclops, whom Phoenix realizes is the son of the Starjammer's leader, Corsair, something neither man realizes. Corsair proceeds to contact D'Ken, offering to sell him the crystal. However, Corsair intends to use Cyclops' optic blasts to kill D'Ken, while D'Ken orders his Imperial Guard to destroy the Starjammers after he gets the crystal. Just as Corsair proceeds to execute his plan, Phoenix transports the X-Men to D'Ken's ship, and a fight breaks out between the X-Men, Starjammers, and Imperial Guard. D'Ken manages to get ahold of the M'Kraan Crystal and uses an incantation to open it; Phoenix tries to stop him, but fails, and everyone is drawn inside the crystal.
