    Synopsis: The team confronts Northstar, since Aurora has told them that he was a terrorist (see iss. 22). He responds with arrogance, and they are interrupted by a fight downtown between Caliber and Mac (back from the dead, see iss. 12). Elizabeth mystically dissolves Caliber's armor, leaving him lying in the street in his skivvies.
    The team arrives, and Mac kisses Heather.
    Mac tells this story: to avoid exploding with Heather in the room, he quickly reconfigured his suit to open a dimensional rift. So he didn't die, but was transported to Ganymede, a moon of Jupiter, where aliens called Quwrlln saved his life.
    On desiring to return to earth, Mac learned that he had been transported 10,000 years into the past, as well. So he gets the Quwrlln to put him into suspended animation. He wakes, finds the alien civilization in ruins, but a space ship nearby, which takes him back to earth.
    After splash down in the Pacific, he swims to Canada, steals clothes, and bumps into Heather in Vancouver (iss. 22) whom he is unable to face since the aliens in saving his life melded his body with his suit, so he is now partly machine.
    Aurora is not sure she loves Walter, now that his human body is gone. But Roger has a plan.
