BY THE YEAR 2038 ALL NATURAL RESOURCES

ON EARTH HAVE BEEN DEPLETED.

MULTINATIONAL CORPORATIONS HAVE TAKEN

CONTROL OF THE UNIVERSE.

NOW A DIFFERENT KIND OF WAR RAGES.

RIVAL COMPANIES FIGHT DEADLY BATTLES

OVER PRICELESS MINING PLANETS

IN OUTER SPACE.

We're under the attack

by Pirite.

We finally analyzed their system.

The spacecraft are drones!

I repeat, drones,

piloted by robots.

Do you read me?

We'll all be killed.

Mayday! Mayday!

At least we finally know

what we're dealing with.

- Any survivors?

- No chance.

So what's being done about it? Pirites are

capturing one of our moons after another,

and we're going broke. Those bastards used to buy

their fuel from us. - I warned the board before.

We can't defend the mining operation

if you keep cuting my budget!

We're not a military operation like Pirite.

Our money is spent on research, equipment...

There are no alternatives left.

We have to defend ourselves, do we not?

We're listening.

They've already captured

51, 47, 46...

The only one left up there

is Moon 44.

And they'll be next.

It's ironic, we already had

a working defence system up there.

And you cancelled it.

Because too many pilots

got killed in training.

Those pilots were having to navigate

in extreme weather conditions.

Pirite obviously managed to deal with it.

- And so will my men!

Two weeks ago I sent up

a new group of navigators.

They'll make it a hell of

a lot safer for the pilots.

Look, Stevens. Your 'navigators'

are barely out of their teens.

- They're kids.

- I tested them. They're the best!

But, I'm having a hell

of a time finding pilots.

No one wants to volunteer

for the outer zone anymore.

We had to send up prisoners.

Convicts? You're puting our prime

assets in the hands of prisoners...

and a bunch of computer wizkids?

- Baker is right.

As usual.

We can't afford to take chances.

But I've taken certain precautions.

Let me remind everyone...

What's at stake here is not Moon 44,

but our mining shuttles.

Without them,

Galactic Mining is finished.

That's why I've ordered the station

commander of Moon 44

to launch all shuttles

at the first sign of attack.

You gave him control of the shuttles?

But what about the crew?

Mr. Chairman, their only chance to escape

is hitching a ride on the shuttles.

I'm afraid that's impossible.

They'll have to stay and fight.

- They would get masacred.

- We're all making our sacrifices.

Or would you prefer to encourage Pirite,

to go on and on with this takeover?

Ladies and gentlemen...

Mr. Chairman...

Moon 44. We've got a problem.

Contact Internal Affairs immediately.

Get me their best agent.

No one's gonna go up there on a

mission like that. It would be suicide.

Even an Internal Affair's agent

doesn't need to know everything.

Yes, sir.

Welcome to the western quadrant of

Galactic Mining's Earth headquarters.

All passengers

with Alpha clearance...

- Rise and shine, we're at home.

- F*ck you!

You know something, Lieutenant?

You've got a real attitude problem.

Unlock me. Or you'll gonna

have a real problem.

F*ck up and I'll take you

with me, I swear it.

Dad, look!

- Come on!

- But that man...

- I.A.

- Internal Affairs. I know who you are.

Who's he?

That's Lieutenant Gallagher.

- Captain...

You guys will never change.

It wasn't even loaded.

You're crazy!

You're nuts!

God damn cop!

- You really enjoy this shit, don't you?

- No.

Galactic Mining wants you

to enjoy your stay...

...but reminds you to be cautious...

Do not reveal the nature or location

of your asignments to strangers.
