Episode 1: To Touch the Ground

In the year 2150, the human race found itself on the brink of extinction. Earth was overcrowded and resources depleted. Pollution was out of control. Then the alien race, the Otruk, arrived and brought radical new technologies with them. The orbiting space stations were built with space elevators tethered to the ground with massive woven fibers of carbon nanotubes. Humans left the surface of the Earth to live in the space stations with the promise that they would return after the Otruk's cleaning technology rejuvenated the surface. The Otruk broke their promise, though, and refused to let humans back to the surface. In 2350, the human race launched their war to reclaim their home.

Now, Trip McElory and his teenage friends rush to complete training in the armored bio-mechanical suits before the assault to recapture Earth begins. They must compete in a series of final exercises pitting cadet against cadet in order to graduate. Ven Rodan has eyes set on humiliating Trip and his squad, though, in his drive to graduate top of the class. Trip and his squadmates must pull together and work as a team if they are going to overcome Ven's unrestrained ambition.
