Guy goes to speak to them, with G'Nort in tow. This is when Guy learns that G'Nort getting a power ring was a ruse by the Qwardians to lower the standards of the Green Lantern Corps to the rest of the Universe. G'Nort saves Guy's life but at the expense of losing his own power ring.

Guy Gardner Reborn
After Guy Gardner lost his Green Lantern Power Ring, he tries several other options at being a superhero again. All these fail and he finds himself wandering the desert, that is where G'Nort finds him. G'Nort has been waiting for the Guardians to reassign him to a new sector, and Guy convinces him that he can help. Guy convinces G'Nort to let him talk to Guardians before they assign G'Nort to a bad sector (like one of all cats or one with out smells). G'Nort offers to zap Guy to Oa but Guy refuses claiming "what if Oa has moved". G'Nort understands the logic behind this and makes Guy a spaceship construct (it looks like a fire hydrant) and sends Guy on his way. Guy is long gone before G'Nort thinks of tagging along. Needless to say Guy never went to Oa and G'Nort still doesn't have a sector.
