It seemed like any other space mission flight, when the JX-1 was fired into our universe on September 29th, 1979. Sent to collect data on the planet of Saturn, the endeavor was soon changed from an unexpected arrival. The captain followed the orders, and sent his ship and crew to the newly dubbed star, Gorath. But miss calculations were taken on how large the celestial body was, and the JX-1 Hayabusa within minutes found itself caught in the burning masses gravitational field. They desperately tried to fire their thruster to pull free, but it was already too late. Yet, their spirits were high. After giving an emotional and pride filling speech to his crew about how their recovered data could save the earth, the men screamed Bonzai. Their calls, still echoing as the flames incinerated the ship.
