The Starfighter was a space fighter built by G.I. Joe using stolen Cobra technology. Completed in 1993, the Starfighter was intended to be piloted by Sci-Fi. However, budgetary and mechanical issues caused the project to be shut down in 1994 when G.I. Joe was disbanded. In 2015 the Starfighter was finally launched, and remains in service.

Genesis

The Starfighter was created using the same basic technology as the original Cobra Stellar Stiletto, with a modification to the bottom hull to fit the missile launcher. The missile launcher and missile technology were stolen back by Cobra and incorporated into their Invader craft in 1993.

History

The Starfighter was a space fighter built by G.I. Joe. Completed in 1993, the Starfighter was intended to be piloted by Sci-Fi. However, budgetary and mechanical issues caused the project to be shut down in 1994 when G.I. Joe was disbanded.

In the early 2000s, Sci-Fi pushed to have the program re-started, perhaps with the assistance of Autobot technology. With the shutdown of the US Space Shuttle program in 2011, leaving only the Crusader in service, there has been a renewed push to restart the Starfighter program.

In 2015 the Starfighter was finally launched, to rescue Roadblock from Space Station Delta once the Dreadnoks had taken it over.
