They're all gone. We remember them like yesterday: pieces of our stolen heritage. Things like NASA. Football. Parades and pies. Good things, comfortable things. We remember a time when we were alone in the universe, safe and oblivious.
But it's all gone now.
We called them the Telestines, and in the face of their ruthless invasion we were powerless. By 2040, all the world's governments and militaries had fallen, and the remnants of humanity exiled to the solar system. We looked down on our blue planet, so close to our birthplace, so close to our home. But the miles may as well have been light-years.
Our anger smoldered in the darkness of space. On Mars. On Ganymede. In the dank, crowded filth of the asteroids. We swore: We will take our planet back.
And today it begins. Our fleet is ready. Our soldiers determined.
Earth will be ours again.

The author leaves out key details and his characters are superficial and childlike. Many holes in the story and things that just don't make sense. For instance, just when it is needed, a character produces his own fleet that is better and possibly bigger than the whole human fleet (the size is another ambiguous detail).
