Visitors: The Shi'ar "Spirit of the Aerie" warbird/starship (with a crew including Imperial Guard members Electron, Gladiator, Plutonia, Smasher, as well as numerous Shi'ar soldiers, plus the prisoner, Empress Lilandra) refueled from the star;
    during this time the "Spirit" was boarded by members of the

First Appearance: War of Kings#3 (July, 2009)

War of Kings#3) - The Shi'ar warbird ship known as the "Spirit of the Aerie" refueled off Cythani 93 in the Shi'ar Outworlds.

(War of Kings#3 - BTS) - Gladiator noted that refueling would be complete in 8 minutes, after which they would head toward Chandilar.

(War of Kings#3) - Before the "Spirit of the Aerie" could depart, however, they were assaulted by the Starjammers (Havok, Korvus, Marvel Girl, Polaris) and Guardians of the Galaxy (Drax, Groot, Major Victory, Rocket Raccoon). Ultimately, Gladiator resolved to be loyal to Lilandra, turning against Emperor Vulcan and the rest of those serving him.

Comments: Created by Dan Abnett & Andy Lanning, Paul Pelletier, and Rick Magyar.

    Cythani is only referenced in a single panel, with the text covered in the history. Based on that, it is difficult to determine whether Cythani 93 was the star from which the ship refueled, or whether it was refueling from the star of the planet Cythani 93.

    If Cythani was the planet, then it was never shown, and we have no idea whether it had any advanced lifeforms (or any life at all).
