Plot[eedit | eedit soorce]

In 1988, follaein his mither's daith, a young Peter Quill is abductit frae Yird bi the Ravagers, a group o space pirates led bi Yondu Udonta. Twenty-sax years later on the planet Morag, Quill steals an orb, efter which Korath, a subordinate tae the fanatical Kree, Ronan, intercepts him. Altho Quill escapes wi the orb, Yondu discovers his theft an issues a bounty for his captur, while Ronan sends the assassin Gamora efter the orb.

When Quill attempts tae sell the orb on the Nova Empire caipital warld, Xandar, Gamora ambushes him an steals it. A ficht ensues, drawin in a pair o boonty hunters: the genetically ingineered raccoon Rocket, an the tree-lik humanoid Groot. The Nova Corps arrives an arrests aw fower, imprisonin them in the Kyln. While thare, a pouerfu inmate, Drax, attempts tae kill Gamora due tae her association wi Ronan, who killed his faimily. Quill convinces Drax that Gamora can bring Ronan tae him. Gamora reveals that she haes betrayed Ronan, unwillin tae let him uise the orb's pouer tae destroy planets, stairtin wi Xandar. Learnin that Gamora haes a buyer for the orb, she, Quill, Rocket, Groot, an Drax wirk thegither tae escape frae the Kyln.

Elsewhaur, Ronan meets wi Gamora's adoptive faither, Thanos, tae discuss her betrayal. Accompanied bi Drax, Quill's group escapes the Kyln in his ship – the Milano – an flees tae Knowhere, a remote criminal ootpost in space biggit in the giant severed heid o a Celestial. A drunken Drax summons Ronan while the rest o the group meet Gamora's contact, the collector Taneleer Tivan. Tivan opens the orb, revealin an Infinity Stone, an item o immeasurable pouer that destroys aw but the maist powerful beins who wield it. Suddenly, Tivan's tormentit assistant grabs the Stone, triggerin an explosion that engulfs Tivan's airchive.

Ronan arrives an easily defeats Drax, while the ithers flee bi ship, pursued bi Ronan's follaers an Gamora's sister Nebula. Nebula destroys Gamora's ship, leavin her floatin in space, an Ronan's forces capture the orb. Quill contacts Yondu afore follaein Gamora intae space, givin her his helmet tae survive; Yondu arrives an retrieves the pair. Rocket, Drax, an Groot threaten tae attack Yondu's ship tae rescue them, but Quill negotiates a truce bi convincin Yondu that thay can recover the orb. Quill's group agrees that facin Ronan means certain daith, but that thay cannae let him uise the Infinity Stone tae destroy the galaxy. On Ronan's flagship, the Dark Aster, Ronan embeds the Stone in his warhammer, takin its pouer for himsel. He contacts Thanos, threatenin tae kill him efter the destruction o Xandar; hatefu o her adopted faither, Nebula allies wi Ronan.

Near Xandar, the Ravagers, the Nova Corps, an Quill’s group, which breaches the Dark Aster, confront the Dark Aster. Ronan uises his empouered warhammer tae destroy the Nova Corps fleet. On the Dark Aster, efter Gamora defeats Nebula (who escapes), she unlocks Ronan's chambers, but the group find themselves ootmatched bi his pouer till Rocket crashes the Milano through the Dark Aster. The damaged Dark Aster crash-lands on Xandar, with Groot sacrificing himself to shield the group. Ronan emerges frae the wreck an prepares tae destroy Xandar, but Quill distracts him, allaein Drax an Rocket tae destroy Ronan's warhammer. Quill grabs the freed Stone, an wi Gamora, Drax, an Rocket sharin its burden, thay uise it tae destroy Ronan.

In the aftermath, Quill tricks Yondu intae takin a container supposedly containin the Stone, an gies the real Stone tae the Nova Corps. As the Ravagers leave Xandar, Yondu remarks that it turned oot well that thay did nae deliver Quill tae his faither per thair contract. Quill's group, nou kent as the Guardians of the Galaxy, hae thair creeminal records expunged, an Quill learns that he is anly hauf-human, his faither bein pairt o an auncient, unkent species. Quill finally opens the last present he received frae his mither: a cassette tape filled wi her favorite sangs. The Guardians leave in the rebiggit Milano alang wi a sapling cut frae Groot.

In a post-credits scene, Tivan sits in his destroyed airchive wi twa o his livin exhibits: a canine cosmonaut an an anthropomorphic deuk.
