The Gradius III system, Located around the star Alula Borealis. This is home to the Gradians, a peaceful Human-like species who are colonized on the Planet Gradius. Every century or so, the poor Gradians are attacked an evil race, the Bacterions, who attempt to take over their planet, along with the rest of the entire solar system. The Gradians thus have no choice but to launch the Vic Viper, a one man fighter ship that is capable of light speed. To rid themselves of the Bacterions invading their planet and all of their other planetary neighbors, the Viper had to be launched.
