Kingdom Hearts, Part Three: Endgame is the eighth and final official story in author William Raymer's Chipmunk Tour Saga series of stories (and the third and final installment in the three-part series-ending Kingdom Hearts trilogy). Writing on this story began and ended in 2009.
It is a cross-over between Alvin and the Chipmunks and nearly every TV show or movie series encountered in the entire Saga.
This story also marks the first significant appearance of Studio Ghibli Sentai Ohranger (later Ghibli Sentai Yumeranger) since A Goofy Wedding: The Ultimate Disney Fanfic.
The Trimaxion Drone Ship (hereafter referred to as Max) is racing to Earth in order to head off the planet-sized Transformer Unicron.
Brittany then starts speaking in Stargazer Starheart's voice about the "Kingdom Hearts," the six guiding principles by which good triumphs over evil (hope, love, courage, justice, passion and friendship).
However, before the new Mr. and Mrs. Evans can go on their honeymoon, word comes that Unicron has entered the Terran system. A brief space battle between Team Chipmunk and Unicron ensues, allowing Team Chipmunk to enter the innards of the evil Transformer.
During their investigation, we learn the identity of the Huntsman, the being responsible for the theft of the All Spark and the murder of a Marine Corps officer during said theft (Kingdom Hearts, Part One: Turnabout Intruder): Thrax, the evil son of the purified Lord Zedd and Rita Repulsa.
However, Thrax survives Unicron's destruction, requiring the four teams of Power Rangers making up Team Chipmunk to call upon their Chipmunk Megazords, which Optimus Prime becomes Omega Prime.
However, Thrax is able to put down all four Chipmunk Megazords and nearly kill Omega Prime. Jason Archer sends a mental image across the voids of space, encouraging all of Team Chipmunk's allies to donate their energy to power up the Kingdom Hearts.
The energy comes in droves, allowing Jason to merge with Omega Prime to become Burning Hearts Omega Prime. B.H. Omega Prime is ultimately able to destroy Thrax and bring peace back to the universe.
As things begin to get back to normal for the members of Team Chipmunk, Jason and Melinda Crosby are finally married, and-most importantly-we learn the meaning of Stargazer's final words to Brittany ("The key words here, Alvin, are: 'new life'").
Nine months later, Brittany gives birth to a baby girl she names Stargazer Cerulean Miller-Seville.
So ends the Chipmunk Tour Saga.
Chipmunk Tour Trivia
For reasons similar to parts of Chipmunk Tour Saga Books 3, 4, 6 and 7, portions of Kingdom Hearts, Part Three: Endgame were edited in 2009. This was because William Raymer had severed all ties to actress-singer-songwriter Joanna Pacitti following Pacitti's disqualification from the reality television series American Idol.
Pacitti was replaced by Kylie Styles, a character from the television series Power Rangers: DinoThunder.
Pacitti is in the process of reinstatement to the Chipmunk Tour Saga-William Raymer is re-editing the C.T.S. stories for The Seville Library, a repository for Alvin and the Chipmunks fan fiction.
Also, each story in the Kingdom Hearts trilogy is named after the final episode of a Star Trek television series (this is to reflect that the Kingdom Hearts trilogy is the "final episode" of the C.T.S.):
