At an Orbital Gas Refinery located on the Ymir Gas Giant in the Litgard System, Nova finds himself fighting a number of attacking robots. The WorldMind theorizes that a Class 16 Protoplasmic Storm has damaged the rigger drones' CPUs.

Rich blasts them with an energy beam and then throws them into the storm. He takes a moment to wave to the crowd of refinery workers and fails to notice the giant maix-rigger robot which appears behind him. Suddenly, Nova finds himself grabbed by the mechanical monster! The two quickly become pulled into the protoplasmic storm and the refinery crew believe their rescuer is dead.

The young Earth hero emerges safely while the robot has been destroyed by the storm. As he leaves the planet, the WorldMind informs him that his uniform has been damaged along with his collar bone. Richard Rider orders the artificial sentience to begin repairs on the suit and initiate the Medi-Matrix program to fix his body.

Nova reveals to his computerized partner that he is angry at himself for acting irresponsibly and losing focus in battle. The WorldMind counsels Rich that he has grown considerably as a hero and begins a holo-file of his first adventure to prove the point.

(At this point, the issue reprints The Man Called Nova #1)

As the holo-file ends, Richard's mood has not improved as he still feels that he is only an average person from Long Island. The WorldMind believes his depression is being caused by his injury. The computerized intelligence reminds Nova that Centurions are selected due to their being "average" because they make the truest heroes.

The WorldMind continues by telling his human companion that he has grown into his powers and now that he wields the entire Nova Force, his abilities seem god-like. Rich comments that he has met a god or two in his time as Nova. The artificial Xandarian sentience responds by playing another holo-file of the human rocket's first meeting with Thor.

(At this point, the issue reprints The Man Called Nova #4)

The holo-file ends as the Stargate brings them to another planetary emergency. Richard Rider's mood is considerably better thanks to watching the holo-file. Nova announces to a group of attacking monsters that he has arrived and they should surrender or face the consequences!
