LEGO Space Police was introduced as a space sub-theme in 1989. Though originally it was known as Space Police, its predecessors Space Police II and Space Police III soon earned it the title of Space Police I.


The Space Police featured many wheeled vehicles and a base, oddly enough the base, 6599 Space Lock-Up Isolation Base, was only released in the United States. Four of the Space Police I sets featured a Blacktron pirate as a prisoner. The largest set was the 6986 Mission Commander.


At this time, Lego wanted to create a background story. The story turned out to be a simple one declaring Blacktron as an antagonist faction creating a "Good guy" and "Bad guy" space agency. The Space Police helped enforce the law and defend Futuron from any attacking Blacktrons.
