Star Fox: Re-imagined

Recommended Posts

Storminator

(Unsure whether to post this in Fanfiction or General discussion, please move if needs be)

So with Star Fox Zero branding itself as a "Re-imagining" of the Star Fox story, I thought to myself how I would reinterpret the furry filled Lylat system! This thread will be showcasing my personal take on Star Fox, so without further ado, lets dive in!

THE LYLAT SYSTEM

Llyat System map.jpg

First off, a little pet peeve of mine- Where are all the moons? It always struck me as odd that the planets had a distinct lack of moons (Bolse notwithstanding) So in this universe Papetoon is Corneria's moon and was the first celestial body in the system to be terraformed. We'll get to the other two, but first- Solar.

Solar has always been an odd one- Is it a Planet or Star? Well in my mind, it's a Planet (Despite what 6 year old me thought) but I've decided on making it a Gas Giant, because that's another thing Lylat seemed to be devoid of in my mind. Now onto its moons- Aquas and Fichina. Making them planet sized moons of a Gas Giant kills two birds with one stone- It satisfies my want for moons, and it deals with the issue of the system having too many planets that its unfeasible. The much loved Sectors X,Y and Z are still here, just not shown on this map since they're not technically in the system, just visible from certain planets.

THE TIMELINE

This timeline mainly covers the events before Lylat Wars/Star Fox 64 and is less of a re-imagining and more my interpretation of events. When creating this timeline I decided on a year in which the game's conflict would occur- 4096 (cookie for those that know how I got that number) I worked from there, doing Wiki searches to find character's ages and such.

The Lylat Wars (4072 – 4102)

This 30 year period saw 3 major conflicts throughout the Lylat System, the largest being the Vemonian War.

Macbeth Civil War (4072-4074)

The frontier industrial world of Macbeth had become divided politically between established corporations and immigrant population that was employed there. It eventually boiled over into full scale civil war, with the Cornerian Army being deployed to aid the rebel Immigrants.

The Syndicate War (4084-4085)

With many large scale Crime Syndicates growing in power in the outer system, the Cornerian central government declared open war in an attempt to crack down on illegal activity before it had a major impact on the central planets.

The Vemonian War (4096-4102)

The Vemonian War began after the exiled Dr. Andross formed the Vemonian Empire over the course of 7 years in order to become the dominant power in Lylat. The war spanned almost the entire system, even reaching Zoness.

I like this reimagining, would Eladard and Meteor still count as canon and on the chart somewhere?

I considered it, but I wanted to stick mostly to the Lylat Wars/Star Fox 64 planets, so no Dinosaur Planet/Sauria I'm afraid. If I was to add Eladard it'd probably be past the Asteriod belt (The blurred band after Corneria and before Solar... should've probably labeled that :P) and as for Meteor, it'd probably be a moon of Venom akin to Deimos.

All in all, this is a very nice imagining, but I don't quite think the bit at 4081 C.L.T is quite right... I thought instead Vixy was killed in a car bomb incident (Suspected by Andross) in the original Japanese comics, instead of catching a bad disease. (Or did you mean to say it was Vivian, as depicted in one of the endings of Star Fox Command?)

Well, considering it's a re-imagining of events I'm kinda free to change things up a little ;) I did mean Vixy, as in James McCloud's Wife. To be honest I always felt the comic's story to be a bit contrived with the whole accidental car-bomb thing. Making Andross have a personal vendetta against McCloud makes the whole world feel smaller, its the "Everything is connected!" school of thought that a lot of blockbusters are trying nowadays.

If I do expand upon all this then there'd be hints here and there as to what exactly the disease was and how she contracted it, but I'd rather have the audience connect the dots on their own, its more fun that way.

So you're saying that Vixy's disease is non-canon then?

In terms of the official canon, yeah, she bit the dust from a car bomb xD So my version of her death is very much non-canon (Sorry purists :P)

There are a few other things I had to alter to make sense in my Timeline, such as Andrew Oikonny's age. According to the Wiki he's meant to be 17 during SF64, which, if that follows my timeline, he'd be like, 12 when he approached Wolf about working for Andross! So I ended up bumping his age up a little to make it work.

Another thing I had to figure out was Fox's age relative to all the events- He's meant to be just 18 by the time of SF64, having dropped out of Flight Academy after learning of James' demise, and making a newly formed Star Fox team before Andross declares war! So how did I solve this?

Students join the Academy when they are 15, graduating when they’re 18. Flight Academy covers all aspects of air/space combat;

Year 1- Enrolment/Air Combat Theory

Year 2- Space Combat Theory

Year 3- Air Combat Training

Year 4- Space Combat Training/Graduation

As well as basic combat training, Students can specialise in other aspects such as Mechanics, Engineering, and R&D

So, Fox drops out in his 3rd year, meaning he'd have all the theory, just none of the practical experience. So he's practically forced to put his knowledge to the test when Andross appears. The reason training takes 4 years is because Air and Space combat are probably two very different things, so you'd have to be very prepared for both. Plus, Corneria seems like quite a militaristic society and would probably take pride in training their soldiers rigorously, but this would obviously mean their strength wouldn't be in numbers, but in their superior tactics and well trained forces.

Also, here's an update to the System map;568e5233d12db_LlyatSystemmap2.thumb.jpg.

Thanks to ArwingFan for making me think about the other planets, Venom now has a moon! I'm debating on whether to put Eladard where Macbeth currently is, and make Macbeth a moon of Eladard. Whether it's a solid planet or another Gas Giant is also up for debate.

Actually, at least in Star Fox 2, the Battle Base Meteor is part of the asteroid belt.

In the original, though, the Battle Base meteor is where you have to go before facing Venom. Either it's exactly what it's name implies for Venom, or a moon. Or, after the events of the first, the Cornerians decided to try and move it back, but was stopped when Andross unleashed his second invasion. Just using my own imagination.

I knew I'd heard or seen from somewhere that Meteor in the originals was part of an Asteroid belt! Regardless, its not a moon for me... But I think it needs a better name than Meteor.

Also been thinking about events after the Vemonian War, mainly how to make the events of Stair Fax Temperatures not suck so much :D

Everyone always says how there hasn't been a solid villain since Andross, so I've been thinking: Why not make the Dinosaurs/Saurians of Adventures the next major Antagonists? I'm thinking Suaria can be a planet in a different system, discovered by Cornerian probes. The Saurian's would come to invade Lylat, Venom specifically. Why Venom? because its their primordial homeworld! Remember that weird temple that was pretty out of place in LW? Well a little Wiki searching reveals that it's believed to have been build by an ancient civilization-

"Corneria University scientists believe that the legendary Lost Tribe of Cornerus did, indeed, inhabit Venom in the distant past." Golmech, Star Fox Wiki

Another thing is that before SFC Venom was never stated to be uninhabitable, just barren and deserted, key word being deserted. Add in the fact that (Supposedly) the Reptilian species of Lylat hail from Venom and I'd say that's a pretty solid foundation for some anthropomorphic Dino's to barge in and take back what they feel is theirs!

So because of this site's 2mb upload limit, I've decided to post any other images to Imgur.

SOLAR

This Gaseous planet is, for obvious reasons, inhospitable. Its two frozen moons however, Aquas and Fichina provide a shallow but livable atmosphere, with Cornerian scientists establishing research bases across the plains of Fichina. Geothermal scans of Aquas have led Scientists to believe there may be artificial constructs beneath its surface, however attempts to break through the thick icey crust have proven unsuccessful. Solar is situated in what has been dubbed the "X/Y/Z" cluster- Three large Nebula's just beyond the reaches of Lylat, which has lead to many theories about their significance to the formation of the system.

-Cornerian Public Records: Solar- 07/05/4026 C-L-T

So yeah, there's a little Lore-dump! Enjoy

ZONESS

The once beautiful planet of Zoness has since been polluted. With the Cornerian Fleet stretched thin and preoccupied with the Battle of Sector Y, it provided the Vemonians a window to slip by Corneria and establish a foothold on the planet. Zoness provides both a tactical advantage and serves as a means of waste disposal, with the intent of damaging the morale of the Cornerian people- Seeing a once picturesque world be corrupted by the enemy.

I really like the timeline you wrote! Truth is I think it can fit into the already existing Star Fox Canon. It's great!

Have you thought of writing backstories for characters as well? Again, this is great! ^^

Thanks a lot! That was partially the thought process behnd it, since the backstory of the games was so vague anyway I felt it could either stand as its own re-imagining or be slotted into the official timeline.

As for characters, I haven't put as much thought into them yet. Truth be told, I've sort of put this on the backburner, and this was always more of an exercise in worldbuilding and lore.  :p Though I do know that I'd want to focus on James McCloud specifically (Hence why the timeline follows evens relevant to him)

It really does follow him indeed. I'd love to hear about Star Wolf as a whole, maybe even the O'Donell clan.

 

I was always confused about when Star Wolf was formed, originally having Star Wolf be a criminal syndicate rather than a team definitely makes sense when you take into consideration Wolf only met Leon, Andrew and Pigma when he was hired by Andross. As a result I always thought there was no way there could have been a Star Wolf before then that James, Pigma and Peppy could have run into. But you managed to sort that out ^^

As for Wolf, I was always uncertain about what kind of backstory he could have had. On one hand the accent made me think of him as a typical rejected rich kid from Corneria, but on the other hand there are no hints towards wolves existing on Corneria. Made me wonder if he was from a planet like Machbeth. However it's worth mentioning that his homeworld is strangely listed as Corneria on the Lylat Wiki: http://starfox.wikia.com/wiki/Wolf_O'Donnell

Same thing for Leon on the same website, though he seems to be from Venom since reptiles are (from what I can tell) Venomian.

Yeah, Wolf has always been interesting with his funny accent. I'd never put much thought into where he came from, although I do know the Lylat Legacy fan comic had him be a refugee on Macbeth, so there's that I guess! I think the O'Donnell clan could have some sort of tradition of naming their offspring after themselves, so there'd be a Wolf O'Donnell Sr and Wolf O'Donnell Jr. I'm thiinking that Wolf O'Donnell Jr (Aka, the Wolf we all know and love) can have the Assault/Brawl accent, while his father could have the SF64 accent :D

So that would make the Star Wolves Syndicate quite threatening, having them carry the name to make it seem like its just one guy coming back time and again (At least until they open their mouth and start yapping :P)

That's interesting! My only question is how old would that make the young Wolf, since Assault happened 8-9 years after 64. I always thought Wolf's accent in Assault was an oversight. http://starfox.wikia.com/wiki/Wolf_O%27Donnell lists him as 38

Well, since its a reimagining Assault might not even be part of my continuity. Regardless, I did have the character's ages listed in the OP;
Wolf O’Donnell- 4069-4101 C.L.T (32yrs old)

So if we assume Wolf survives the events of SF64 then he'd be around 40 years old. I'd say by that time his Assault voice would suit him well.

He did end up being the leader of about half of the Venomians who served Andross, so yeah, I imagine that's the case.

Still, how come his homeworld is listed as Corneria? He doesn't sound Cornerian to me in SF64, same with Leon. :wolf::leon:

Probably because Arwingpedia is a bit loose with its sources- I'd say Lylat Wiki is better for actual facts about the game's characters. I'd say they just assume everyone's from Corneria because its the center of government.

      My idea for a Star Fox game would be a massive multiplayer online game where people could pilot Arwings and either battle or race each other for galactic win. You could have a customization thing like Guitar Hero where you make not only your own ships but your own characters/wingmates. You could make furries and ships and then launch them into battle! In addition, there would be an adventure mode that would be offline. This mode would be similar to Star Fox Zero but it would be its OWN game and NOT a remake of Star Fox 64. This kind of idea IMO would save the series but only if done properly.

      \ \_) (o) /
      \/_/
      A desolate planet of pollution and waste. Venom's Voleech City was ugly as rotting paste. As I say all of this, Fox had to make haste. He was scurrying behind buildings and blasting at bots, bursting their circuits as they screamed out 'bleeps' and 'blots'. Made of tech, they were, they had no blood clots. Fox's boots continued to make more trit-trots, as he fox-trotted his way into the Death Weapon Factory. Robot armies followed him inside, could it be that Fox had nowhere to hide?
      "I need to destroy these weapons so that Andross won't use them against Corneria" Fox thought to himself. He isolated each in a gravitational field, then set a timer on each one, eventually they'd come out well done. Sooner or later, they bursted into flames, sending scrap metal everywhere, killing the robot armies who had no names. Then Fox got an incoming message from Falco, not Slippy. Man oh man, is that bird ever lippy.
      "Andross is here, he's bringing death and fear. Get your ass to Corneria, hurry right now! We can't make cheese, they've slaughtered every last cow! We've even got less freedom here than on Venom, I'm just thanking God that my jacket is Denim" said Falco. Fox jumped in his ship as soon as he could, then set off for Corneria, to restore peace and brotherhood. When he arrived on his homeworld he was not very pleased. The cities were in shambles, even Admiral Z's house of cheese. Cheese had been banned under Emperor Andross's new law. No one could have cheese throughout the land, not cubed nor sliced, not even one strand. Children were crying and wailing in pain, where was Fox when they needed him? No cheese is quite lame! The giant block of cheese atop Admiral Z's had melted down, far down to the ground, trapping Cornerians...wait isn't the earth round?
      "Cheese can't possibly be that frickin' sticky. Something's rotten in Wisconsin, and this ain't no job for Slippy" thought Fox. Fox got an incoming message from Wolf, who was flying overhead. He didn't like Fox, he wanted Fox to be dead.
      "Hey Fox it's the Wolfster, your people are worthless eaters. We added adhesive properties to the cheese, so now they're all stuck. You'll never defeat Andross cuz face it Fox, you suck. Cheese is for losers so kiss your planet goodbye. All you animals must bow before Andross and die" said Wolf. Sick of all the distress and war, Fox couldn't take it, no not anymore. Fox dropped his cell phone, and began losing his mind. He couldn't take what was happening, even so, saving planets was his 9 to 5 grind. But when all seemed lost, Peppy flew by, dispatching himself with a parachute to the ground, sniffing out trouble better than a foxhound. He got out a long stick of measuring tape, and began charting, graphing, and plotting the melted cheese landscape. Finally he knew just what the Star Fox team should do.
      "Ah, dang, I'm gettin' carless. Fox, Gimme a spare Lylation Nova Bomb" ordered Peppy. Fox pulled a Nova Bomb out of his pocket and placed it in Peppy's hands.
      "Ah, that be the one. Now watch and learn Fox mah boy" said Peppy. Peppy began strapping on giant mecha-gloves to prevent his hands from getting stuck, then started lifting up the cheese straight off the earth. That took strength, power, and mirth? He rolled up the cheese against the nova bomb, then hastened to a cannon, firing it at Andross's ships one by one. If they wouldn't let Cornerians have cheese then let them have what they took. In the form of planetary defense prepared by a master cook.
      "DO A CHEESE ROLL!" ordered Peppy.
      "Man, where'd you learn to do that?" asked Fox in amazement.
      "I learned it at the Cooper's Hill Cheese Rolling and Wake. It's an event near Gloucester, England, where they roll cheese down hills. Now if you don't mind, it's time to defeat the emperor's evil shills!" said Peppy, rolling up the nova bomb in all of the melted sticky cheese from the demolition of Admiral Z's restaurant. Fox began rolling up a nova bomb in cheese, and freed all the citizens who had been stuck. Then Fox and Peppy loaded up the cannons, taking out each one of Andross's minions. Eventually appeared Andross himself, pissed off as hell, like a wargod-elf. Fox jumped into his Arwing, and prepared to take him down. He wasn't gonna lose his beloved planet to that Planet of the Apes reject CLOWN!
      "You will die, just like your father" declared Andross.
      "Not over my dead body!" said Fox.
      "You do realize the irony and foolishness of your response, do you not, Fox?" thundered Andross.
      "I realize that you're going down!" said Fox.
      "If I'm going down, then I'm taking you with me" said Andross.
      "NEVER!" yelled Fox.
      "It is foolish to come against me. You know that I control the galaxy!" said Andross.
      "The universe is like waaaay bigger than that" replied Fox. "TASTE CHEESE YOU FREAAAAK!" yelled Fox, firing a cheese laced nova bomb into Andross's mouth. Andross's ship exploded and Andross parachuted himself to the ground, along with his robot buddy and number one confidante and fan...Fantron.
      "I have a splitting headache," said Andross. "Why must I always lose?" he wailed, pounding the earth with his fist.
      "Master, perhaps next time you should attack your own planet, Venom. Then get everyone to think Fox was responsible. Maybe then your people would finally support you and your unquenchable thirst for war" said Fantron.
      "Not a bad idea" said Andross in his evil robotic-like Darth Vader-esque voice. But then Fox cornered Andross, plasma blaster in tow. He looked quite proud, he had put on a good show!
      "Correction Emperor. That's a very BAD idea!" said Fox. "You're going to Corneria War Crimes Prison for at least thirteen years, you won't get any cheese, just cheap Norwegian beers!" Andross looked confused.
      Later that day...
      Fox, Falco, Peppy and Slippy, watching cheese burn in a restaurant founded by a hippie!
      "Yay, Fox!" clapped Falco, Peppy, and Slippy, as a giant block of cheese slowly melted under a candle's flames. They all clinged wine glasses together.
      "LONG LIVE TEAM STAR FOX. AND LONG LIVE THE GLORIOUS GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING...CHEESE!" they all yelled. The three men cheered and shared a group hug, then devoured more cheese and dived into an oversized apple cider jug. Outside the room was the beautiful Krystal, aspy. She had seen enough, Fox just wasn't her guy.
      Note: I took the words "THE END" and made them be out of cheese. Then I rolled them up in an awesomely tasty text sandwich.

      Krystal Becomes Infatuated with Cheese
      So we all know the story, it had something to do with cheese, and how with cheese Fox was easy to please.
      But there's more to it than that as this new tale shall prove, for this is when Krystal caught on to the groove.
      It started out a day like any other, but Krystal had moved on! Fox was away from her life, yes indeed gone. Mocked for having been part of Star Wolf briefly,
      she took up residence on the delightful Planet Kew. But her true feelings were just like her fur...very blue. So she joined a coven of fox girls just like her, hoping that for her sadness this would be the cure. But it wasn't you see, Fox wasn't gone, deep down in Krystal's heart Fox still lingered on.
      "I'm delighted to attend this meeting as you can see. I'm not the least bit lonely, I feel quite free!" said Krystal.
      "Good," said Fay sitting to the right of Krystal. "Let's do a conciousness raising session, with trees made of nettle!"
      "Sorry to interrupt but she takes cheese to each session. She has some Chedder and Feta right now, I have the most distinct impression" said Fara.
      "No, no, no, I'm not up for that. Why is everyone staring at me and Katt?" asked Krystal.
      "It's the cheeses behind your backs," said Fay with a smirk. "Why not share some with us? Might be a nice perk!"
      "No, I won't" said Katt. "I like cheese too much, cheese I must never lack. My only true boyfriend is Monteray Jack"
      Krystal sighed. She had never been a fan of cheese. But see, Fox was, and his soul was something Krystal just had to appease.
      "This cheese reminds me of someone I loved. Someone I cared for, kissed, and hugged" said Krystal, embarresed. She ran away.
      "She takes that cheese to every meeting here!" said Fay. "AND SHE NEVER EATS IT!" she added.
      KRYSTAL JUMPED IN HER ARWING WITH THE CHEESE IN TOW, SHE WASN'T FEELiNG TOO GOOD, THIS WE ALL KNOW
      "So they don't like me clutching on to cheese, do they? I wasn't about to convince them it was my baby, I need Fox Mccloud back, he's the mashed potato to my gravy" said Krystal. Feeling sad, with dejected eyes, she flew herself into a black hole.
      She got warped to Planet Earth, London UK to be exact. Krystal sounded like she came from there, we'll never know why. Perhaps it's past life stuff, but for now, gotta fly!
      Her arwing crashed and she jumped out with a parachute. She brushed dust off her legs and frantically searched the wreckage for cheese.
      She pulled out some cheese and got down on her knees.
      "Oh, cheese, you'll always be special to me. My one reminder of whom I love, Fox if you're still out there, please show me a dove" said Krystal.
      A dove flew down and stole her cheese. Krystal ran towards a policewoman.
      "You look rather blue," said the policewoman.
      "I am blue, my name is Krystal, yes it's true. A dove flew off into the sky with my cheese, he did not even ask first,
      nor did he say please!" replied Krystal.
      "I can't help you this instant, I think it's been too long a shift. I've never seen a fox person, if you get my drift. But cheese? Yes, it's delicious when spread over fresh mana. Krystal, has anyone told you that you sound just like Princess Diana?" said the cop.
      Krystal broke down in tears and yelled out to the Krazoa to take her away to Fox. So they gave her a test. A taste test of cheeses, conducted by them.
      The Krazoas loved cheese. With cheese they were easy to appease. So they brought her to where Fox was...sitting in a London pub, eating cheese and drinking wine, while helping Falco flick away a bug.
      "Fox," said Krystal tapping Fox on the back. "You know I'm the only one that can understand you, I just have a knack!"
      "Do I know you, blue lady? Oh, Krystal, that's right. It's called a rivalry okay? Let me get back to my rivalries!" said Fox, who then proceeded to chat with Falco.
      "That bird can buzz off, he's bloomin' pissing me off. Now Fox, look at me! We were a team, like Mcnee and Dianna Rigg. Would you forgive me if I handed you a fig?"
      "Figs are old school and I'm just as depressed as you. My nose is stuck to this table like glue!" said Fox.
      "Fox, I have cheese!" said Krystal. Fox looked at the cheese.
      "Get that away!" said Fox violently slapping away the food. Krystal's dress came undone, leaving her in a bikini. All the onlookers looked,
      Krystal, she was damn pretty!
      "Terrific, everyone's staring at me and my rack. Fox won't you please come back?" said Krystal.
      "Can't right now!" said Fox.
      "Oh, please, Fox, let's go right now! Repair to our Arwings, with that food made from a cow" said Krystal.
      "Food made from a cow?" asked Fox, with a twinkle in his eye. "You mean cheese right?"
      "Yes, Fox. Cheese!" said Krystal.
      "To heck with cheese!" said Fox. Krystal started to cry.
      "No, no, hear me out, you must know the reason why!" said Fox. Brushing away a tear, Krystal listened.
      "Krystal I realize I love you more than anything in the universe. You're the greatest gift ever, this I now know, let's rise from the pits where we sunk so low" said Fox. Fox looked into Krystal's eyes, so sweet and sublime. He saw the cheese in her hands, and realized she was one hundred percent divine.
      "I can't believe how foolish I was!" said Fox with a teary eyed grin. He hugged Krystal, and they both shared a kiss. The crowd was confused,
      but to Fox and Krystal, this was bliss.
      "Falco, just admit my boyfriend's a better pilot than you. Go home to your cat, she'll repair your beak like new!" said Krystal.
      Back in the Arwing:
      "You were actually going to change your name to Kursed?" asked Fox.
      "Yes, yes, yes I was. But now we have each other and a cargo hold full of cheese. And our beautiful sets of furs, free of all fleas!" replied Krystal.
      THE END
