After two hundred years of isolated but mostly peaceful existence, the colonists of Capicua, a fertile super-earth orbiting Gliese 667, find themselves confronted with a violent and uncompromising attempt by a newly arrived paramilitary force to impose annexation through force of arms.
Oblivious to the impending invasion, Toni Miura joins Capicua’s decrepit armed forces in a bid to escape domestic troubles, aiming for the privilege of driving the Hammerhead, a bipedal armored suit which is the epitome of his planet´s ailing warrior spirit.
With the arrival of the earthborn, Toni’s unqualified platoon, brimming with misfits and plagued by internal differences, finds itself suddenly thrown into the midst of battle. Abandoned by their seniors in the course of their mission, Toni and the remnants of his unit find themselves lost in the wilderness of a world that, owing to the nature of its orbit, suffers periodically from planet-wide hurricane conditions.
Thus begins a race against time, where a handful of cadets find themselves forced to outmaneuver a pursuing enemy in the boondocks of a turbulent planet, all the while seeking to deliver an odd but important Bavarian prisoner-of-war to their Headquarters.
