The John A Warden mysteriously takes off with a full crew and Jenkins at the
helm before going 'dark', with no communication at all from the vessel. Captain
Ibanez is at first refused permission for the Alesia to set off in pursuit of
her ship but the orders soon change.
Major Henry Varro (voice of David Wald), known as Hero and one of the most decorated
men in the Federation, has been arrested by Dr Jenkins for insubordination at
the battle of Fort Casey. Confined to the brig, he is given a special reprieve
as his men refuse to take orders from anyone but him as they plan to board the
John A Warden to find out why it has gone dark.
The remaining battle-hardened troopers, including the tragic Trig (voice of
Emily Neves) with her amazing Morita XXX sniper rifle and Otis "Bug-Spray" Hannis
(voice of Andrew Love), race to the rescue, unsure of what to expect.
Their mission is to take and board the John A Warden, rescue any and all survivors
and exterminate any resistance they may find, but the threat from the bugs is
about to hit home.
The truth is more frightening than anything they could imagine as they discover
why Jenkins set off in the John A Warden and look for survivors on board the
stricken spaceship. They will soon find themselves hurtling through space out
of control, careless of their own safety yet powerless to stop the planned assault
