When a Pharoid temple was occupied by militants, Baron Karza and Red Falcon led a battalion of Acroyears on a rescue mission. At the battle's conclusion, Karza received a cryptic warning from one of the dying militants, before discovering Red Falcon inside the heart of the temple, communing with five Time Travelers. The Emperor's son returned home with claims that the Travelers, part of a Pharoid sect said to have transcended time itself, had shown him the future, and that by seeking their counsel he alone could guide the empire on the right path.

After flying into the Cloud, the Micronauts were attacked by Reptos, a race of beings previously thought destroyed by the cloud. Seeing that the Reptos survived, Oz was excited to return home with the news that Microspace wasn't doomed. With the Reptos destroy tearing up the Heliopolis, Oz told Microtron to destroy the ship if he had to, something which proved unnecessary after the crew was saved by the mysterious Time Traveler.
