Their alien trainers don't care how many of them survive, they only care that they can fight.
James Cook was a gamer, but his avatar Salchar, he was a fighter, a leader and the man the recruits need. James must put his doubts about himself aside, there's no guide to this, no strategy and it's definitely not a game. He will need to become Salchar, with one goal, to protect his people.
This is the story of Salchar, his recruits, and the Rise of their Free Fleet.
