On Oa, the headquarters planet of the intergalactic police force, the Green Lantern Corps, the Guardians of the Universe see alarming evidence that the feared villain, Krona, is coming to destroy the planet. While the Guardians move to evacuate, Green Lantern Hal Jordan helps the unsure new recruit, Arisia, by telling her several stories of fellow Lanterns and the challenges they faced. Through him, we see the adventures of Avra the first Lantern, Princess Laira, Kilowog, the unsociable Mogo and Jordan's immediate predecessor, Abin Sur. When Krona arrives, those stories prove more valuable than anyone expects as Arisia draws a special inspiration from them.

Did You Know?
Although character and production design is copied directly from Green Lantern: First Flight
(2009), this is essentially a reboot of the previous film happening in a different time line. For example, in First Flight, Arisa is already established as a Green Lantern and Hal Jordan is the newcomer while in Emerald Knights, she is the rookie and Hal Jordan is the trainer. In First Flight, Sinestro obtains the yellow power ring and becomes the villain while in Emerald Knights, he's still a member of the Green Lantern Corps and his fate as leader of the Sinestro Corps is predicted to happen much later. Finally in First Flight, the individual power batteries were eliminated as was the need for regular recharging and the Oath was only used on special occasions. In Emerald Knights, the individual batteries are restored, the rings are recharged at regular intervals and the Oath is recited with each recharging (which is more consistent with the comic book story lines).
