(Avengers I#345) - One of Lilandra’s ships, headed by Hobgoblin of the Imperial Guard, moved through the stargate toward Earth, and (though the ship’s praetor Alake was reluctant) decided to kill four super humans who saw them arrive (Vision, Thor (Eric Masterson), Quasar (Wendell Vaughn), Sersi). The Avengers resisted the Shi’ar fire, though, and tore into the ship, demanding the Shi’ar surrender. Alake reluctantly agreed, and the dozens of crew members were taken captive and reduced in size by Dr. Pym. Lilandra learned of Alake’s capture

(Avengers West Coast#81) - The captured Shi’ar, some captive Kree, and Warstar (of the Imperial Guard) were moved to Project: PEGASUS in their miniature states and watched over by more Avengers (Dr. Pym, Wasp, Spider-Woman, Gilgamesh, She-Hulk, USAgent, Mockingbird, Falcon). Nightside and Scintilla (both of the Guard) restored the captive Shi’ar and Warstar to their real sizes, unintentionally freeing the two Kree as well. The Shi’ar, Nightside, and Warstar were recaptured.
