The alien cruiser sweeps through Earth’s defenses and, hovering directly above Star Fleet Command, issues an ultimatum – hand over the F Zero One (F-01) or face destruction.

Fortunately Star Fleet’s last hope, the X-Bomber, manages to repair the damage it suffered as the alien cruiser’s forces attacked and lures the cruiser away from Star Fleet Command. X-Bomber’s advanced weapons beat off the cruiser, but the question it asked remains – what is the F-01?
