In the years before the attempted invasion of Earth by the Kelgarons, Starfighters were the paranoid offspring of the United States government. They were a small elite fighter group based in outer space. Their mission was to defend the Earth from possible hostile aliens and any other type of threat from outer space.
The Starfighters at that time were made up of three squadrons. A squadron of Starfighters was stationed on two of the three Star Bases under construction and on board the Galactic Enterprise. The two Star Bases carried ten ships, eight fighters and two bombers. The Galactic Enterprise only had room for six fighters along with its own support spacecraft.

Because there was some doubt, it was decided to send several more bombs just in case things went wrong. Things went wrong. The debris field around the asteroid proved almost impenetrable. All the spacecraft were severely damaged trying to reach the asteroid.
On the second attempt three of the Starfighters’ ships were destroyed. Leaking fuel and oxygen, one of the Starfighters made a head-
The first Starfighter got in, launched his bombs, and got out again. Both of the bombs hit their target and exploded.

He waited for the asteroid to come to him giving him time to study the asteroid very carefully. For 33 hours he paced the asteroid before he gunned his engines using up what little fuel he had left. What images there were of the event show the Starfighter appear to impact the asteroid’s surface. Several tense seconds passed before the asteroid blew apart. It was surmised that the Starfighter somehow found a way to fly his ship inside the asteroid before releasing his bombs.
His ship leaking life-
