Why on this Independance Day, must we fight? Why must we battle against over-whelming odds, in hope to save the planet? I'll tell you why, you won't like it, but I'll tell you. The Human Race became lazy, lazy and ignorant. Ignorant? Scientists claimed to all that we were the only sentient life in the universe. Ha! They learned didn't they. Just because we can't find it, doesn't mean it's not there. If it's a space-faring species, they probably would have faster than light travel, as well as the ability to hide.

As the first Mecha landed, Earth was running scared. It took only 35 minutes for all of Earth's major cities to fall. Clan ships lifting populations to fill the worlds largest cities; Fighter's sweeping the planet's skies for opposition. And the worst of all, the Colony ship. It landed dead center of the Atlantic Ocean. Earth's forces were overwhelmed and beaten; all of humanity belonged to the Trothin Alliance.
