He IS telling the truth!!! He just has a few of his facts wrong. This is how it really went down.
It all started in a little trailer park back in 1984......
Alex Rogan , is a teenager living in a trailer park with his mother and little brother. Outside of being a handyman at the trailer park, his sole
hobby is playing Starfighter, a stand-up arcade game where the player defends "the Frontier" from "Xur and the Ko-Dan Armada" in a space battle.
Eventually he becomes the highest scoring player of the game. Shortly afterwards, he is approached by the game's inventor, Centauri who invites him
to take a ride. Alex does so before discovering that the vehicle is actually a spaceship; moreover, Centauri is a disguised alien who whisks him off
to a far away planet called Rylos, leaving his family and girlfriend, Maggie Gordon. So that his absence goes unnoticed, an android named Beta is left
in his stead.
Upon his arrival, Alex discovers that the images and territories in the Starfighter arcade game represent an actual conflict between the Rylan Star
League and the Ko-Dan Empire; the latter is led by Xur, a traitor to whom the Ko-Dan Emperor has promised control of Rylos itself. The game was
designed as a test to find those "with the gift"; Alex is expected to pilot an actual Starfighter spacecraft called the Gunstar. He also discovers
that The Frontier is an array of planetary-scale force fields that protect Rylos and its surrounding planets from invasion and that Xur has given the
Ko-Dan the means to breach it.
Before Alex can fully understand and dispute his induction, Xur appears (via a holographic projection) inside of the Starfighter base and reveals he
has discovered an infiltrator in his ranks and proceeds to broadcast his death by torture to the entire base, including his father, Ambassador
Enduran, the Starfighter commander. He then proclaims to the people of Rylos that once Galan (Rylos's moon) is in full eclipse, the Ko-Dan Armada
will begin their invasion and not even the Starfighters will be able to save them. When Alex asks to be taken back home, Centauri does so, giving him
a means by which to contact him, should Alex change his mind. After they leave, the starfighter base is attacked- a saboteur eliminates the base's
defenses, causing the base to sustain heavy damage, killing all starfighters save for a friendly reptilian alien navigator named Grig, and destroying
all Gunstars, save for an advanced prototype.
Once home, Alex discovers the android who assumed his identity and contacts Centauri to come and retrieve it. An assassination attempt by Xur
interrupts this, and Alex realizes that the only way to protect his family (and the Earth) is to pilot a starfighter. Returning to the ruined base,
Alex meets up with Grig and they set out in the Gunstar to battle the Ko-Dan Armada by themselves.
Alex and Grig attack the Ko-Dan mother-ship, crippling its communications system; catching the Ko-Dan fighter wings off-guard. The battle reaches a
fevered pitch; Alex keeps the upper hand, using the "lone fighter-against-hordes" tactics he mastered by playing the coin-operated video game. Soon,
however, his weapons are depleted. Desperately, he activates a secret weapon installed in the Gunstar: "Death Blossom", which destroys all the
remaining Ko-Dan fighters. Lord Kril, captain of the Ko-Dan mothership, blames Xur for this turn of events. After relieving Xur of command, Kril
orders him executed. Instead, Xur takes advantage of Alex's attack and kills the sentries escorting him from the bridge. He then flees the
mother-ship just before Alex destroys the ship.
Alex is proclaimed the savior of Rylos, only to discover from Enduran (who escaped from the Starfighter base before its destruction) that the Star
League is still vulnerable: The Frontier has collapsed and Xur escaped, and will continue to be a threat as long as he still lives. Alex agrees to
stay and recruit other Starfighters, rebuilding the Legion. He returns to Earth, dramatically landing his Gunstar in the trailer park. Grig tells
Alex's mother and the people of the trailer park of Alex's heroism in the Rylan War and that he will be a Starfighter of great potential, who will
teach future Starfighters.
After explaining to his friends and family where he was, Alex reveals that his services as a Starfighter are still needed by the Rylan Star League. He
then asks Maggie to join him in space. Maggie's grandmother, Granny Gordon gives her blessing to her granddaughter, and Maggie returns to Rylos with
him. Alex's little brother Louis is inspired to follow in his brother's footsteps and begins playing the game, so that he too can master it.
