The year is 2326, and Earth has been overrun by an alien race known as the Zarkons. The Zarkons have used advanced technology to subjugate humanity, and any attempt at resistance has been brutally crushed. However, in the midst of this chaos, a group of pirates known as the Blackbeards has risen to power. The Blackbeards have no loyalty to anyone but themselves, and they have been raiding both human and Zarkon settlements alike.
To make matters worse, Zarkons have appointed the official human governments which work alongside with the aliens and oppress the humanity altogether.
Several years have passed when a team of rebels approaches you to ask you to join their forces. However, Zarkons have seized all ships and the flights of non authorized ships are forbidden. The rebels have only an old ship that was not designed for battle. The ship was built to collect garbage and scrap metal in space. It is equipped with a tractor beam that is used to pull and collect the items. The rebel's mechanic managed to mount a laser blaster in order to make it ready for battle.
You agree to join the rebels and fly the ship in a mission to re-take back Earth and drive away all Zarkons, the Blackbeads pirates and the submissive human governments.
