In response to this unprovoked destruction of one of the armada’s ships, two assault fighters were launched to engage the enemy. The alien battle cruiser soon turned to flee through a nearby worm hole, with the two fighters in pursuit. Now trapped in another dimension, the two fighters are faced with the continuous onslaught of hordes of alien craft.
