How Captain Ellen joined the Tourney

Captain Ellen, a star token collector and a member of the USS Enterprise. Ellen entered the King of Iron Fist Tournament 4 to get back on her feet again, however the USS Enterprise failed and she also failed to win the tournament. Ellen did not have enough money to return to America and stayed in Japan as a star token collector, a month later she had a call from James T. Kirk. Spock was riding on Dr. Leonard H. McCoy's bike and caused an awful accident. With Spock's accident and the money she needed to head home, Ellen decides to win and enter the Smash Bros. Tourney.
