You take on the role of Fox McCloud, the leader of the Star Fox team. 'Star Fox' is an elite group of fighter pilots that works as mercenaries for the Cornarian Army. Corneria is the home planet of the team, and also of Dr. Andross, a mad scientist who was responsible for the death of Fox's father five years after General Pepper, the leader of Corneria, exiled him (Andross) to the planet Venom, and the Star Fox team went to investigate the strange activity from the planet. Many years later, Andross arises as the emperor of Venom and the supreme ruler of an almost unstoppable military force and declares war on the entire Lylat System, starting with Corneria. General Pepper calls the team to action. The orders: protect the key planets of the Lylat System, infiltrate Venom, and stop Dr. Andross. Written by
