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.

Yeah, most likely. I found this on the Star Fox Wikia:

During his youth, he also harbored an intense rivalry with Fox's father, James McCloud. It is also implied in the comics as well as Wolf's line "You'll be seeing your dad soon, Fox!" that Wolf had some involvement in James's death. It is quite possible that he maintained a master and pupil relationship with James when he was a young man. He also mentioned if he successfully shoots down Fox in Assault that "[Fox] ain't your father, after all...", implying he had a large amount of respect for James McCloud's dogfighting abilities. Wolf's advice towards Fox after finishing Mission 7, (Don't hesitate. When the time comes, just act!) is also somewhat a pun on James's motto, further indicating some history. It is implied through the Super Smash Bros. series that Wolf's rivalry with Team Star Fox started out with James from having tangled in battle after battle with McCloud during the time he served Andross's pre-exile antagonism towards Corneria.

 

Wolf serving Andross before he was exiled is backed up by Wolf's trophy description in Sm4sh.

Wolf used to fight in Andross's army, tangling with Star Fox in battle after battle. After Andross's exile, he went his own way and formed a mercenary team called Star Wolf. He and his eternal rival, Fox, have even fought on the same side from time to time...but inevitably, they always meet again as enemies.

Or because their ancestors lived on the planet before they went into space

Here's the thing though- People spread out all over the place. You're not wrong in what you're saying, but people will spread far and wide. My ancestors were, in part, Scandinavian yet I was born and raised in England. Likewise, Wolf could be from any habitable planet of the system despite his ancestory probably being Cornerian at some point in history.

The same can be said for almost every character's ancestry. Their Ancestors would have been on corneria for much of it's history prior to the space age.

Ok guys, got a few more little things I'd like feedback on:

I'm toying with the idea of having the Starfox team be named Starwing as a nod to the PAL region release of the game. Also considering changing Fox's name to James so that he'd be James McCloud Jr. as he was in the Nintendo Power comics, maybe keeping Fox as his nickname.

The next major thing is branching paths/alternate timelines. I'm thinking that there would be two versions of the SF64 events, based on the two endings of the game- Either Andross is a robot and the real one lives on, or Fox defeats the real Andross and he stays dead. This split would then create 2 timelines respectively. The first, in which the real Andross survives would go on to follow events similar to Starfox 2. The other, where the real Andross dies would then lead on to a timeline similar to the games we got after SF64 (So Adventures, Assault, maybe even Command).

I like the timeline idea. I was always under this impression:

Notice how in SF0, everything seems a lot more technologically advanced? What if this happpened:

During the opening for SF0, Fox says the Lylat Wars dragged on for five years before the game starts. What if Andross chose to wait with attacking Corneria, allowing the Venomians, the Cornerian army and Star Fox to upgrade their vehicles and weapons?

Hmm... not a bad idea. Technology advances pretty quickly in our world, so imagine how much an interplanetary society would advance in 5 years or so!

Unfortunately, it turns out SF0 might be a reboot after all. Here's why:

 

Spoiler

Solar is gone, Andross is banished to another universe, Venom is just a teleportation device.

Lylat System Map Version 2.jpg

So I suppose this is a small update, but at the same time a big one- An updated map of the Lylat system, incorporating the planets from Star Fox 2. I decided to remale Solar to Sora, the literal translation of its Japanese name. As always, would like to hear your feedback!

      Should there be more games that cross over with the Star Fox series? (E.g. Starlink: Battle for Atlas)

      Why didn't Battle Mode make it into Star Fox 2 final release?

      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.

      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.
