The series is set in the future where a phenomenon known as the "Great Catastrophe" devastated the world, causing the creation of an advanced civilization named "Vega". The people who survived the catastrophe were forced to live in the cities of Vega, which were protected by a massive barrier.

The Vega civilization soon faced another threat from the Shadow Angels, who constantly attacked their cities in search of a power source called "Prana". To combat this threat, a team of skilled pilots merged with the elemental beings to form the ultimate weapon, the Aquarion.
