[[MultipleEndings Depending on the player's performance]], the game will end with either VCD returning home after the offensive against the Crystals' homeworld and see what looks to be Mars, [[DownerEnding only to find that it's Earth reduced to a lifeless red rock by the Crystals]], or the ''Bellwether'' unable to return to Earth due to damages sustained by the Crystals during the final battle, but with the Earth celebrating their victory against the Crystals as a result of the destruction of the enigmatic crystalline core [[TrueFinalBoss Divine]] [[HiveQueen Rampart]], Helga sends in a rescue ship for the crew that will arrive within a month, and Max cautions to [[SequelHook stay vigilant in case of another attack in the future]].

Upon arriving at the Crystals' home planet, Max and Eshiria notice that there are [[DeadAllAlong no signs of life to be found on the planet]] and is completely overrun by the Crystals. Detecting large energy signatures underground, they order Fighting Thunder to infiltrate the interior of the planet and investigate, which confronts a spherical being that appears to be the planet's guardian, [[ShieldedCoreBoss Humpty Dumpty]]. During the battle, Eshiria discovers that the [[OhCrap atmospheric composition of the planet is the same as Mars]]. The data Fighting Thunder relayed to the ''Bellwether'' reveals that the large Crystals are made up of the same composition as water, and that the Crystals' invasion of Earth was not a normal invasion at all. Their true motive was to [[GaiasVengeance reset Earth by annihilating all life on the planet]] through pollution and [[YouWillBeAssimilated contaminating their weapons and machinery]] before cleaning up the pollution and making the planet habitable again.

Eventually, after receiving the long-awaited attack order to assist the North American army and destroying a battleship contaminated by the Crystals, Max and Eshiria receive word from the Middle East branch of the VCD that there is major Crystal activity in the region. Eshiria notes that the energy signatures detected in the region are the same as the one in North America. The crew stumbles upon a cave full of Crystals, and Max has a shipment of the Crystals send to the French shipping port, under suspicion that the Crystals [[ItCanThink have a sign of intelligence]]. Max then issues an SOS call to the port, even after having doubts from his superior, [[ReasonableAuthorityFigure Helga Lindenbaum]] of the [[FictionalUnitedNations international peace council]]. The suspicion is unfortunately proven right, as the Crystals are attacking the port. Max also realizes that the Crystals have the ability to upgrade any machinery they contaminate.

Max orders Fighting Thunder on a mission to the Large Hadron Collider facility, expecting a massive Crystal presence there. His suspicions are again proven right, as the Crystals have laid siege to the facility in an orderly military fashion with Max hypothesizing that there may be [[HiveQueen a core relaying orders to the Crystals]]. After clearing the contamination at the LHC facility, a surveillance drone detected on the ''Bellwether'''s deck steals the Crystals and delivers them to a pirate mercenary named Valbarossa Hawkeye, who plans on sending the Crystals to an unknown facility.

Max then sends out Fighting Thunder to pursue Valbarossa and retake the Crystals. Valbarossa detects Fighting Thunder and orders the flagship to attack. As Valbarossa's ship's defenses are being disabled, the stolen Crystals suddenly start to contaminate the ship's command bridge and upgrade it with an energy cannon to destroy Fighting Thunder. After destroying the contaminated pirate ship, Valbarossa, [[SamusIsAGirl revealing herself to be a woman]], [[HeelFaceTurn joins Max and Eshiria]] aboard the ''Bellwether''.

Valbarossa reveals her client to be Lieutenant Walter Erick Campbell, head of VCD's weapons development division and a researcher in the organization SHIFT. VCD locates the SHIFT facility where Campbell is located, and orders Fighting Thunder to raid the facility. Earlier, Campbell had reminded Max that [[WellIntentionedExtremist it was the efforts of SHIFT and utilizing Crystal energy]] that are the reasons why the Fighting Thunder project and the ''Bellwether'' exist, and that [[JerkassHasAPoint the war effort is dependent on him]]. During the raid on the SHIFT facility, Campbell reiterated his stance on SHIFT's continued research, denouncing the [[FictionalGenevaConventions Montevideo Agreement]] that had banned the research on Crystal technology, but Max says that since he is on the front lines, [[EvilIsNotAToy he knows how dangerous the Crystals are]], since the Crystals had contaminated Valbarossa's pirate ship. After destroying the facility, Fighting Thunder begins to escape through the cargo route, but not before Campbell sends out mobile weapons out of spite against Max and Fighting Thunder.

Following the attack on the SHIFT facility, Helga confirmed Max and Eshiria's hypotheses of the Crystals, culminating in the conclusion that [[HiveMind one of them is relaying information on the other Crystals and the machines they contaminated]], comparing it to UsefulNotes/CarlJung's theory on the collective unconscious. Helga then orders Max and Eshiria to leave Earth's atmosphere to launch a counteroffensive on the Crystals and their mother planet.

VCD locates the SHIFT facility where Campbell is located, and orders Fighting Thunder to raid the facility. Earlier, Campbell had reminded Max that [[WellIntentionedExtremist it was the efforts of SHIFT and utilizing Crystal energy energy]] that are the reasons why the Fighting Thunder project and the ''Bellwether'' exist, and that the war effort is dependent on him. During the raid on the SHIFT facility, Campbell reiterated his stance on SHIFT's continued research, and [[JerkassHasAPoint denouncing the Montevideo Agreement that had banned the research on Crystal technology, technology]], but Max says that since he is on the front lines, [[EvilIsNotAToy he knows how dangerous the Crystals are, are]], since the Crystals had contaminated Valbarossa's pirate ship. After destroying the facility, Fighting Thunder begins to escape through the cargo route, but not before Campbell sends out mobile weapons out of spite against Max and Fighting Thunder.

Following the attack on the SHIFT facility, Helga confirmed Max and Eshiria's hypotheses of the Crystals, culminating in the conclusion that one of them is relying relaying information on the other Crystals and the machines they contaminated, comparing it to UsefulNotes/CarlJung's theory on the [[HiveMind collective unconscious.unconscious]]. Helga then orders Max and Eshiria to leave Earth's atmosphere to launch a counteroffensive on the Crystals and their mother planet.

Upon arriving at the Crystals' home planet, Max and Eshiria notice that there are [[DeadAllAlong no signs of life to be found on the planet planet]] and is completely overrun by the Crystals. They order Fighting Thunder to infiltrate the interior of the planet and investigate. During the battle, Eshiria discovers that the atmospheric composition of the planet is the same as Mars. The data Fighting Thunder relayed to the ''Bellwether'' reveals that the large Crystals are made up of the same composition as water, and that the Crystals' invasion of Earth was not a normal invasion at all. Their true motive was to [[GaiasVengeance reset Earth by annihilating all life on the planet planet]] through pollution and contaminating their weapons and machinery before cleaning up the pollution and making the planet inhabitable habitable again.

Added DiffLines:

17 years after the war with the Crystals had begun, the Vanquish Crystal Defense, or VCD, is awaiting orders to launch the Fighting Thunders into battle to assist the North American army which is being attacked by the Crystals. Aboard the VCD flagship, the ''Bellwether'', Richard "Max" Maxwell and Eshiria Portman lament that they are being held back during what they consider a Crystal contamination far bigger than the other problems the VCD had experienced.

Eventually, after receiving the long-awaited attack order to assist the North American army and destroying a battleship contaminated by the Crystals, Max and Eshiria receive word from the Middle East branch of the VCD that there is major Crystal activity in the region. Eshiria notes that the energy signatures detected in the region are the same as the one in North America. The crew stumbles upon a cave full of Crystals, and Max has a shipment of the Crystals send to the French shipping port, under suspicion that the Crystals have a sign of intelligence. Max then issues an SOS call to the port, even after having doubts from his superior, Helga Lindenbaum. The suspicion is unfortunately proven right, as the Crystals are attacking the port. Max also realizes that the Crystals have the ability to upgrade any machinery they contaminate.

Max orders Fighting Thunder on a mission to the Large Hadron Collider facility, expecting a massive Crystal presence there. His suspicions are again proven right, as the Crystals have laid siege to the facility in an orderly military fashion with Max hypothesizing that there may be a core relying orders to the Crystals. After clearing the contamination at the LHC facility, a surveillance drone detected on the ''Bellwether'''s deck steals the Crystals and given to a pirate mercenary named Valbarossa Hawkeye, who plans on sending the Crystals to an unknown facility.

Max then sends out Fighting Thunder to pursue Valbarossa and retake the Crystals. Valbarossa detects Fighting Thunder and orders the flagship to attack. As Valbarossa's ship's defenses are being disabled, the stolen Crystals suddenly start to contaminate the ship's command bridge and upgrade it with an energy cannon to destroy Fighting Thunder. After destroying the contaminated pirate ship, Valbarossa, revealing herself to be a woman, joins Max and Eshiria aboard the ''Bellwether''.

Valbarossa reveals her client to be Lieutenant Walter Erick Campbell, head of the weapons development division of the organization SHIFT. VCD locates the SHIFT facility where Campbell is located, and orders Fighting Thunder to raid the facility. Earlier, Campbell had reminded Max that it was the efforts of SHIFT and utilizing Crystal energy that are the reasons why the Fighting Thunder project and the ''Bellwether'' exist, and that the war effort is dependent on him. During the raid on the SHIFT facility, Campbell reiterated his stance on SHIFT's continued research, and denouncing the Montevideo Agreement that had banned the research on Crystal technology, but Max says that since he is on the front lines, he knows how dangerous the Crystals are, since the Crystals had contaminated Valbarossa's pirate ship.
