It may be way too early to mention this, but for my story, I created a few particular events in which the Starfox team are fighting in an armada against other enemies outside the Lylat System. They have been so preoccupied with these battles that they are unable to handle other events in the Ultimate Story that they are usually in charge of handling. This gives the chance for other characters to receive the spotlight, characters such as Link and Zelda. They get called in to deal with these issues.
Back to the armada. During these battles, the Starfox team dawn new outfits and utilize new technology. A lot of the vehicles and gadgets they used are ideas borrowed from Starfox Zero. It is my way of putting that game into the story without transferring into it. My story has included a lot of what made Starfox the amazing game it is even though it continued on with Starfox Adventures. That game I always believed was perfect for my story but I would never stray from the elements that made the game special and this idea is no exception. I can't wait to talk more about it when the time comes.
