Baron Dark's Lightstar Crystal half is even less stable since his manipulating it and the Warriors of Light stopping it. Lightstar prepares to lead a team to see exactly what's happening, but then the Warriors of Light receive a transmission from the king of Luminicity's ship in a different area than when his armada apparently fell. The crystal's energy begins skeletonizing living things that don't come into contact with Dark, giving him the power to transform masses. Lightstar, Talyn, and Grimskull go to the frequency's location, Araculan Divide, to see if their father survived. The Warriors of Light learn Baron Dark's treachery extended to before his departure. Guardian struggles to lead the mission against Dark in Lightstar's place, and Dark gets a new ally: a skeletonized wolf-man named Klaw.
