Only the doctor's laboratory survived the explosion, floating on a chunk of land in space and only kept inhabitable by the [[CrazyPrepared extensive life support system installed by Muto]]. There, he decides to create ''another'' device, this time to ''rebuilt'' a planet, and quickly completes the design. However, he's missing both the components needed to construct the machine and the special fuel to power it, both of which can be found on the many worlds controlled by Burnital Industries. Muto leaves in his teleporter to collect the stuff he needs and perhaps get back at Burnital along the way.
