Millions of light years away, a planet called Nankoo is ruled by an enigmatic tyrant

"The Emperor", his fleet of U.N.N.F. warships, and an army of deadly Hbarri warriors who terrorise all who oppose them. 

The seas of Nankoo had been quiet for several years without any sign of resistance...

Until today...
