The gravity anomaly appeared to be somewhat sentient, as it grabbed onto Minion and tried to pull him in. Terra was able to collapse it on itself.
The Titans found themselves face to face with an enormous space ship. It fired on them and they boarded. One of the aliens opened a port and flushed some out, then it disappeared. Minion, Darkstar, Supergirl, and Green Lantern were in space while the rest of the team were on the alien ship.

The New Titans #125

Cover Date: September 1995
Subtitle: Xenocide (The Siege of the Zi Charam part 5)
Writer(s): Marv Wolfman
Artists(s): William Rosado, Keith Champagne
Storyline: [continued from Damage 16]
Rose Wilson saved Darkstar's secretary from her ex-husband, who was attempting to kidnap their children at gunpoint.
The Zi Charam council prepared and fired their missiles at the dismay of the Titans. They found another way - the Titans began destroying the weapons except for one, which they turned around at its planet of origin. It exploded in the atmosphere, infecting all the creatures on the planet. Since it did not affect any race but the Progenitors, each being would carry the virus to their homeworld, leaving it off-limits to invasion. The Progenitors retreated.
The Titans stayed in the system a while longer and helped in the rebuilding process. Later, the "gravity well" which propelled them into the system returned and they headed home.
Note: this issue also contains detailed maps of the Titans' satellite, headquarters, and shuttle.
