History

The Starjammers were a group of renegade spacers who perform acts of piracy and sabotage in the tradition of old English buccaneers. The original Starjammers, Ch'od, Hepzibah, Raza, and their human leader Corsair met in the slave pits of the Shi'ar Empire. This was during the reign of D'Ken the mad when atrocities of the Empire were many. When the four escaped and stole a starship, they swore vengeance on the tyrannical government that had enslaved them. They battled the empire abourd their ship, the Starjammer (of which they have at least two). Soon others joined the Starjammers to fight for freedom.

The Starjammers

When D'Ken attempted to steal the power of the M'Kraan Crystal, the Starjammers first met the X-Men (including Corsair's son, Scott). They teamed up to fight the Royal Elite Imperial Guard, who were protecting the insane emperor D'Ken. In a roundabout way, the Starjammers were responsible for putting Lilandra on the throne, and she stopped the Empire's attempts at capturing the Starjammers.

When the X-Men came to Shi'ar space to stop Corsair's son Gabriel (also known as Vulcan) from slaughtering the Shi'ar, Corsair and the Starjammers agreed to help. Confronting Gabriel, who was poised to become emperor after killing D'Ken, Corsair ordered his child to stop the carnage. Bitterly declaring that he had no father, Gabriel murdered Corsair in cold blood. His place as leader of the Starjammers was then taken by his son, Alex.
