Synopsis for "Space Is... Eternity!"

Brief Summary:
Galactus consumes the remaining Elders of the Universe in revenge and asks Nova and the Silver Surfer to find the remaining Elder for him. Before the two leave on their mission, they secretly watch Galactus meet with Eternity. Meanwhile, Nenora becomes the Kree's Supreme Leader and starts to kill off people who know her secret: that she is really a Skrull spy.

Silver Surfer Vol 3 10 page 1

Detailed Summary:
Having failed to destroy Galactus, the remaining Elders of the Universe (Grandmaster, Collector, Champion, Runner, and Gardener) are all consumed by Galactus as an act of revenge. Galactus then charges Nova with collecting the final elder: the Contemplator. Silver Surfer agrees to help her in her quest, under the condition that Galactus promises to leave Zenn-La alone in the future. Galactus agrees and they speed off to start their mission. However, the Surfer stops Nova and prompts her to witness as Galactus (showing his true form) meets with Eternity. The two cosmic beings discuss the recent events set into motion due to the current Kree/Skrull war. After the meeting, Nova is awestruck by how really enormous is the universe.

While on Kree-Lar, Aptak (impersonating a diplomat from Waziliah) visits with Nenora who has succeeded the now insane Supreme Intelligence as leader of the Kree. In private Aptak marvels at how Nenora, a Skrull spy, now rules over their greatest enemies. However, Aptak is poisoned by Nenora. As Aptak dies, Nenora reveals that she intends to rule the Kree empire for her own gain and is planning to kill everyone who knows about her secret.

While back in space, Galactus finds that consuming the Elders is proving difficult and is unaware that Death is watching him.
