In 2020, Team Galactic announced they would be hosting a reunion of the Stardust Classic in which they invited previous competitors to compete. The Purple Rockets accepted the invitation and travelled to the Andromedome in Polaria to compete. Orbit and Sulfur earned the team their first medal, a gold, in the second event, the Black Hole Funnel. A silver medal in the fourth and final event was enough for the Purple Rockets to finish third overall.[2]
