THE EPIC FIGHT FOR INDEPENDENCE ON OUR MOON HAS BEGUN!
The Lunar colony is a mining colony with only internal security capabilities. Nobody had even considered that there might soon arise a need to defend the colony from the Earth! But that day has come. Something has been uncovered on the Moon. Something important. Something . . . alien.
The Lunar colonists perceive this great discovery as their own. Finders keepers and possession being nine-tenths of the law is how things are on the Moon. But as far as the governments of the Earth are concerned, they paid for everything on the Moon, so it belongs to them.
There is only one solution: turn Luna into a battlefield!
