Some years after Project Dragoon mankind is again threatened by the Galaga Legions. On the planet Kornious a sudden and unexplanable disruption of gravity has occured. Bringing the planet to the brink of extinction. A probe has found that many objects beneath the surface of Cornius, an enhanced version of the UIMS that attacked in Project Dragoon, are syphoning the planet's gravity. High-tech Space-Fortress Gourb is planning to redirect the planet's gravity to a star and destroy the UG. So the United Galaxy Space Force launches Team Dragoon to destroy Gourb and the UIMS. But Gourb has already risen from below the surface of Kornious to unleash this gravity burst.
