Starfire wakes up to discover a huge forehead lump on her forehead, which leads to tusks on her neck, elongated zebra-colored fingernails, weird cravings for unusual food, pointed ears, large hairy feet and scale-like skin. Believing she is turning into a monster, she leaves and takes refuge on a planet deep into space. She meets a charming, kindhearted alien who dispels her fears. After she becomes encased in a chrysalis, the alien turns out to be a Tamaranian chrysalis eater. Meanwhile, the rest of the Titans search the galaxy for her, eventually finding the planet and rescuing a refreshed Starfire from peril while the Cironielian Chrysalis Eater is defeated.
