For centuries the CARATIA STAR SYSTEMS have been protected by the GUARDSMEN, elite warriors bonded with advanced, living armor that grants them fantastic powers. When our story begins, the Guardsmen are a shadow of what they once were, and their forces have been scattered, leaving the planets of the FRINGE TERRITORIES overrun by crime and chaos.

As a fugitive, Tranden discovers the armor, ship and decade-old remains of a legendary Guardsman known as BLACK ALPHA along with his wisecracking Artificial Intelligent sidekick.

Along the way, he will use his newly found superpowers to fight crime and chaos as he battles against all the evil forces of the Galaxy
