Far across the Trevakian Empire...the furthest planet, Zaxon B, stands alone and embattled on both the surface and surrounding space. With no word of forces available to support the struggle, hordes of armored Morgons and Silakians pour from drop ships onto the inhospitable planet, the heavily outnumbered defenders fighting for their lives against an enemy that takes no prisoners and prizes the skulls of defeated foes as trophies.
With war raging across the far reaches of the galaxy, Earth sits in apprehensive peace and deafening silence. A small detachment of Trevakian Ships guard the lone planet from orbit above whilst world leaders rush to rebuild their fighter strength and manufacture the advanced weaponry the new allies have provided. Earth's residents are innocently unaware of the threat posed against them - a cunning and vicious race that seems to consider taking prisoners a sign of weakness.
At any time our lives or our world could change dramatically. Most of us do not even consider, or are far too afraid to consider, that this hour may be the last of perceived normality. That something has been watching....
"Amazing sci-fi adventure!"
A darkness is falling across the galaxy. With allied forces in a full desperate retreat across the remains of Zaxon B, the Red Leopards move forward in an attempt to redress the balance. With the protective orbiting space station already under attack, the last opportunity for escape has now passed. The stranded forces on the planet are alone.
