Luckily, some of her new friends are willing to make the trip with her, but they never would have expected that they would be coming up against some of the biggest threats in the galaxy! Meanwhile, the earthbound students are faced with their own challenge—pet-sitting Krypto the Super-Dog, Supergirl’s adorable and feisty Kryptonian pup.
