It is the year 5012 and the Milky Way galaxy is under attack. After the Universal War, a war that almost brought about the destruction of every known universe, the planets in the Milky Way banded together to create the Intergalactic Force - an elite fighting team sworn to protect and defend the galaxy. Only the brightest and most promising students are accepted into the Intergalactic Force Academy, and only the very best cadets reach the highest of their ranks and become ...STAR FIGHTERS! The Enemy's Lair Peri and his crew are horrified. The Meigwors seem to be an even bigger galactic menace than the Xion, and now the Phoenix crew is in the impossible position of having to help the planet that attacked Earth and destroyed the Intergalactic Space Station, by returning their kidnapped prince. They just have to figure out how to do it - without endangering Selene, who stayed behind with the Meigwors and is still on their planet.
