''Star Strike'' is one of the last [[FullMotionVideo FMV games]] for the Sega CD by Sony Imagesoft. The pending release in late 1995 was canceled due to the demise of the system only for the game to get picked up 5 years later by Good Deal Games who released it under their own name primarily targeted at retro enthusiasts.

You play as Trace, a rookie pilot who must defend Earth against the Protoids, a race of evil brain-eating aliens. His quest will take him to the farthest reaches of space, [[StockFootage where everything looks the same and joystick wiggling is mandatory each time an enemy ship is shot down.]]

The game was [=MSTed=] by WebVideo/{{Retsupurae}}. If you've got half an hour to kill, it's definitely worth watching.

!!This work contains examples of:

* {{A Space Marine Is You}}
* {{Asteroid Thicket}}
* {{Brain Food}}
* {{Disproportionate Retribution}}: The Protoid leader swears to exterminate humanity after a captive escapes, denying it a meal.
* FlippingTheBird: A variation. Captain Rammer swings his hand from under his chin as a big "fuck you" to the Protoids after his hilariously chaotic escape.
* {{Frickin Laser Beams}}
* {{The Future}}
* {{Hey Its That Guy}}: Pete of {{Warehouse 13}} plays a pilot who you may call "Snoopy", if you survive your first mission.
* {{Hyperspace Is A Scary Place}}
* LargeHam: The Admiral In Spades. And Also to a lesser degree the Commander.
* {{Off The Shelf FX}}
* {{Rail Shooter}}
* {{Spaceship Girl}}
* {{Stock Footage}}: For every enemy ship that is destroyed, the gameplay stops so you can see: Your ship's lasers firing, the enemy pilot reacting, his fighter exploding, your fighter's AI/wingmen congratulating you, ...joystick waggling, and your wingmen giving you a command, before gameplay finally resumes. Every. Single. Time.
* [[StupidStatementDanceMix Stupid Joystick-Waggle Dance Mix]]: With all the stupid statements made throughout the game, the rave lasers and infamous joystick-waggling footage were what made it into [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VlqvOCMRgNg this]] video. Considering they get the grand majority of screen time, this is not without justification.
* WouldBeRudeToSayGenocide: Type A after every single level.
