After returning home from freeing the Vorticons from the Grand Intellect. Commander Keen has to endeavor his regular household routines which includes eating his vegetables and going to bed early. Soon Keen creates his newest device called a Photachyon Transceiver which in other words is an interstellar radio.

It seems that something called The Shikadi plan on destroying the Milky Way in the name of Gannalech.

Keen grabs his brother’s football helmet and preps his trusty old Bean-with-Bacon Megarocket for take off. Just as he is ready to leave his mother calls out that it is dinner time. Keen can’t afford to waste any time and has no choice but to safety stun his parents in order to save the galaxy.

Commander Keen takes off in his Megarocket and heads towards Gnosticus IV, the home planet of the Gnosticenes, the guardians of the Oracle

When Keen arrives at Gnosticus IV a council Page informs him that the Shikadi have imprisoned the other council members in the Shadowlands to keep them from interfering with their plans. Keen sets out into the shadowlands to rescue the other council members in order to stop the Shikadi.
