At the far edge of the Lylat system, a lush planet is in turmoil. Once a primordial paradise, Dinosaur Planet has been torn apart by an evil dinosaur named General Scales. This monster has caused sections of the planet to be ripped up and flung into low orbit, and his legions of mutated dinosaurs are running wild. It’s been 8 years since the best pilot in the Lylat System, Fox McCloud, defeated Andross, and Fox’s team has since disbanded. So when word of Dinosaur Planet’s plight reaches General Pepper, it’s Fox alone who must shoulder the burden.
