At some point in the distant future (in present terms, the 31st century), the human race perfected the bio-logic circuit and created a master computer called the Gatefold Computer System, or GCS-WT. The computer took in information at a fantastic rate and became "self-aware" just a few days after going on-line.
Seeing itself as superior to humans, it immediately gave the inhabitants of Earth an ultimatum: Be ruled or be destroyed. The humans fought GCS-WT and most of their forces were defeated. A small group, however, managed to escape and regroup on a secret base near the star Sirius.
These last members of the resistance movement have used all their technical know-how to assemble the most powerful spacefighter ever. With the speed and weaponry of this ship, the resistance fighters believe that they can break through the defenses of GCS-WT and destroy it.
But the spacefighter is no good without a pilot...
