With Krypton's impending end coming, Zor-El and Alura constructed a rocket ship but it could only hold one occupant and their supplies. They embraced their daughter Kara one last time and had her sit in the ship. Alura placed her Mnemosyne Crystal necklace on Kara then closed the hatch. Kara was launched off Krypton and survived. The blast wave of Krypton's destruction knocked Kara unconscious and the ship was sucked into a wormhole. She fell almost two decades behind on the estimated Earth arrival time. Kara had little memory of the journey to Earth 21.7 light years away. Superman sensed Kara's spacecraft crashing into the atmosphere and rescued her. Superman decided it would for the better if she got used to life on Earth before he told her everything he knew. At 0900 hours, it was reported a Kryptonian ship landed near Smallville on Earth. A female occupant was also reported but was initially unidentified. The Metropolis Junior Detective Society took up the case.

Supergirl decided to use the rocketship for her Mechanics, Robotics, and Automotive workshop project and added new modifications to it. Lena Luthor, the new I.T. girl, noticed gunk on the hull and wiped it off. Supergirl thanked her and mentioned dust from Krypton crystallized and stuck to everything. She soon got Batgirl's emergency call and took off in the rocketship. The homing tech took right to Killer Moth's hideout. She opened fire and created a gaping hole in the side of the building. After Moth was tied up, Batgirl and Supergirl departed in the rocketship. Amid preparations for the Vehicle project deadline, Supergirl did some last minute touches with her heat vision. She connected an aquamarine and fuschia wire and accidentally launched a defense missile. Supergirl prevented it from landing in Metropolis but it blew up Super Hero High's I.T. office.
