Back when these many people were still in school, they had no idea that they would embark on such an extravagant quest as this. Let us take a look at how this came to be...

As Squall Leonhart, Quistis Trepe, Rinoa Heartily, Zell Dincht, Selphie Tilmitt and Irvine Kinneas battled against their toughest foe, the Sorceress Ultimecia somehow became stronger and stronger as they continued to dish out more pain.

Ultimecia - "Foolish SeeDs... time kompression shall take place... there is no stopping it."

As Squall continued to slam into her mangled form of "no face," holding tight his Lion Heart, made up of some of their planet Earth's best materials, Quistis began to summon the most powerful Guardian Forces to be discovered in their world, varying between a powerful "machine" known as Eden. Rinoa began to call upon her very talented dog Angelo, to use powerful attacks and defensive spells for their sake of living throughout this fight. Zell was using the powerful Bahamut dragon Guardian Force to weaken the Sorceress even further to her destruction. Selphie helped her team by using supportive items such as Megaelixer, which somehow had the power to revitalize everyone and give them the strength to fight on. And last but not least, Irvine had discovered some special type of ammo, which sent a huge, white "laser beam" into the opposition, in which he used to the max. This fight was going their way!

Ultimecia - "You sikken me, SeeDs... I was expekting you to give up while you kould..."

Squall - "... Whatever."

As the pain became more and more, she could sustain no more. She began to lighten up with several colors brightened and darkened by others. Wavy beams of white, red, green, yellow, blue, and rainbow-like mixtures began to shoot out of her deformed body.

Rinoa - "Squall, have we won?"

Ultimecia - "No, you insignifikant fools! It's... over..."

Squall - "What's happening?"

And suddenly, before their very eyes, Ultimecia's lifeform -- body, so to speak -- itself began to explode! Extremely powerful magic was blazing out from deep inside her! And as they watched on, she began to evaporate, but before they knew it, it wasn't just her... it was them as well! They stopped in their tracks, as the world around them began to twist and twirl into darkness, with very few beams of light. All around them became wavy.

Zell - "The hell...!?"

Selphie - "Oh, no! We were too late!"

Rinoa - "Could it be, Squall!?"

Squall then puts away his weapon, and in their last moments, grasps tightly onto Rinoa, and holds her close. The Sorceress Ultimecia is no longer in sight, as well as their world. All is lost...

On the other hand...

In the Lylat System, Andross was using "hallucinations" to reflect a giant-sized face to his own, and two enormous arms, as the StarFox Team -- Fox McCloud, Peppy Hare, Falco Lombardi, and Slippy Toad, with added members of Fara (Phoenix) McCloud, Bill Grey, and Katt Monroe -- fired lasers after lasers into this huge beast.

Slippy - "We don't seem to be having any effects, Fox!"

Fox - "I guess we'll have to resort to Nova Bombs! Everyone, get ready!"

The entire team began to charge up one final blast of their lasers, as Andross' laugh could be heard throughout Venom. Which meant, elsewhere, the StarWolf Team -- Wolf O'Donnell, Leon Powalski, Pigma Dengar, and Andrew Obiesky -- could hear him inside the building.

Leon - "Now what do you propose we do?"

Andrew - "We can't just leave my uncle up there fighting alone!"

Pigma - "Ahh, put a sock in it."

Wolf pondered to himself, as Pigma and Andrew argued, as Leon sighed as well. Turning to his left, he noticed their small refrigerator beginning to phase-out. With an eye-patch over the injured eye in his left, his right eye widened.

Wolf - "Hey, shut up, you guys! What's that?"

They turned and saw as it began to get bigger.

Leon - "What on Venom is THAT!?"

Wolf - "I don't know, and I sure as hell don't wanna know! C'mon, we gotta get out of here!"

????? - "Going somewhere?"

Before they could move, Wolf's ears rose, and turned, swinging tail. Suddenly, the "wave" began to flash, and suddenly, a man stepped in. They stood in awe.

????? - "You must be Wolf O'Donnell."

Wolf - "Yeah?"

Seifer - "You can call me Seifer. Seifer Almasy."

The other three members were confused, but Wolf had a weird look on his face.

Wolf - "Yeah, what do you want?"

Seifer - "Boys, this world is about to be compressed."

Wolf - "'Compressed'!? With WHAT?"

He turns and points out window, to a small star.

Seifer - "... Earth."

Wolf - "And how do you know this?"

Seifer turns to meet Wolf's eyes.

Seifer - "Let's just say, I know the creator. In a short time, we will have a new leader to bow before, you and I. Come with me, all of you."

Suddenly, they get up, as Seifer turns around. All of which uneasy, Seifer walks right through the "portal"! Following by the StarWolf Team, they suddenly disappear, and it enlargens to 50 times it's normal size, "wavying" everything! And finally, it comes upon the battle with Andross and StarFox.

Slippy - "What's that? Looks different!"

Fara - "Fox...!"

Fox - "Don't worry, Fara... I'm here for you."

Andross - "WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THIS!?"

Falco - "What is it, Fox!?"

Fox - "How am I supposed to know!"

Suddenly, it began to circle the entire base. General Pepper realized something was happening on Venom. With a new-advanced "phone," he messaged the StarFox Team.

Pepper - "What's going on there!?"

Fox - "We're not sure, sir!"

Peppy - "It's getting closer! There's no chance of escape, all the exits have been blocked!"

Bill - "Is this thing going after us, Andross, or the entire Lylat System!?!?"

Katt - "Falco, I'm worried!"

Falco - "Don't worry! I just wanna know what the hell it is!?"

And before their very eyes, the "wavy" engulfed the entire base. A small whirlwind began, as everyone was shifting in an odd way, the same as Andross..

Fox - "Ahhhh!!!!!"

Everything was black, and finally, the "wavyness" invaded the entire Lylat System. All was lost...

In each world, it seemed like the end. This is where our story begins...
