    Plot

    Vers, a member of the Kree Starforce, struggles with recurring nightmares and fragmented memories of a past life on Earth. Despite this, she is a formidable warrior under the command of her mentor, Yon-Rogg, dedicated to fighting in the interstellar conflict against the shapeshifting aliens called Skrulls. During a mission, Vers is captured by Skrull leader Talos and subjected to a memory probe, triggering more flashbacks of an Earthly existence. She manages to escape, and in the process, plummets down to planet Earth, crash-landing in a Blockbuster Video store in 1995.

    On Earth, her unusual arrival attracts the attention of S.H.I.E.L.D., namely agent Nick Fury, who encounters Vers as she attempts to decipher her clouded past. She believes that the key to her identity and the ongoing war lies within her fragmented recollections. As Vers and Fury team up, they embark on a journey to uncover her true origins and the extent of her powers, inadvertently discovering hidden truths that challenge their understanding of the larger galactic conflict. Along the way, they encounter allies and enemies as they try to stay a step ahead of the pursuing Skrulls and unlock the secrets that Vers holds within.
