As you can see the vertices are crooked and at an awkward 3D angle, how do I straighten them regardless what position each vertices are at? Is there a shortcut?enter image description here

I first thought it was a "flat" mesh but it looks actually 3D, so in that case the knife tool, as suggested by Chris, is probably the best solution: Use K to activate, then Z to cut through. You can also try J to join the vertices.

If it was a flat mesh, you have an addon called EdgeFlow made by Benjamin Sauder that allows you to align edges (I don't know why align vertices/edges is not a default tool in Blender). Once installed, select the edges and press CtrlE (or header menu > Edge) > Set Linear:

  • $\begingroup$ I realize that your mesh is actually not flat, to cut through it with the knife, you need to press the Z key $\endgroup$
