In the beginning, Katt Monroe sends out a distress signal when being attacked by Goras on Titania. Upon the team's arrival, Falco is re-introduced to Katt's old rag-tag team of roughnecks, who suspect that Captain Shears is part of a plot to resurrect Andross. Fox doesn't believe them, which ends up in a sparring match between him and Falco, thus adding more emphasis into Falco's intentions of leaving Star Fox. Eventually, it is revealed to Star Fox that Shears is indeed evil, and Fox storms in to stop the resurrection plan once and for all.


  • Interestingly, the manga ends with the Star Fox team seeing Dinosaur Planet breaking apart and deciding to save it on their own accord, whereas Star Fox Adventures opens with General Pepper ordering them to go rescue the planet.
