It is a period of civil war. Well, civil might not be the right word, considering that the various parties aren't exactly localized and were pretty much the opposite of united, but the other part is the same. Portals have opened, shots have been fired, and war has broken out amidst the various settings of the science fiction multiverse! The chaos of this reality-smashing conflict (which is totally not a convenient plot device for setting up future Smash Fiction matches, how dare you) plays host to several unlikely partnerships, and even more unlikely skirmishes -- the most recent of which is a good old-fashioned space dogfight between the heroes of Hoth, the Rebel Alliance's own Rogue Squadron, and the anthropomorphic Nintendo mercenaries known as Team Star Fox!
As the two teams battle for control of a mysterious space station that could hold the key to final victory for their respective sides, their mettle (and their spaceships' metal) will be thoroughly tested. Rogue Squadron has the terrifyingly accurate Wes Janson, the unflinchingly competent Tycho Celchu, the undeniably awesome Wedge Antilles, and of course, the occasionally whiny but all kinds of powerful-in-the-Force space wizard Luke Skywalker. Team Star Fox features the daring canine commander Fox McCloud (who is NOT throwing away his shot), the sharpshooting curmudgeonly bird of hotly-debated species Falco Lombardi, the aging but still prone to shout (inaccurately) about barrel rolls Peppy Hare, and of course, Slippy Toad, whose nightmarish amphibian eyes have seen far, far too much.
Which team has the piloting skills, firepower, and sheer moxie necessary to defeat their opponents and claim their goal? Rafael Medina returns to Smash Fiction to help answer that question, despite his own divided loyalties; Kit may or may not have gotten us sued by Lucasfilm; Dan is all about those Star Wars numbers and advanced statistics; and MeganBob uses the Lightning Round to do what she does best.
