Rock Galactica – A Musical Journey in Space & Time

Youtopia’s defense satellites detect Alien Vanguard Ships Ascending1 out of deep space. After the enemy scout patrol is destroyed by royal forces, intelligence expects a massive enemy force about to invade!

Youtopia’s Deep Space Riders2 are sent out to mobilize allied forces, Calling on all Legions3 to unite. Commander Gravity is entrusted with leading the envoy. Many Deep Space Riders return without success, only a few Riders are able to mobilize allied forces to aid in the defense of Youtopia. Commander Gravity has not yet returned. His fate is uncertain and so is his effort to call on more troops for help.

The few arriving troops are deployed for a maneuver on Planet Vern – a colony in the border quadrants. Following an internal betrayal, Shadow forces launch a surprise attack, directing the main thrust towards King Aratron’s ship, ending with his death. The Battle at Vern4 is lost; the remaining royal and allied forces retreat to Youtopia.

News of The King’s Death5 and the lost battle causes a wide spread panic among the population of Planet Youtopia6 and all its colonies. In a Fearful Metropolis7 news travels fast, causing a rapid deterioration of moral of the people and the remnant forces. It seems destruction is inevitable and the fate of Youtopia seems like that of a Falling Star8.

The alien force soon appears in numbers so large that the sum of all ships approaching Youtopia block most of the incoming sunlight, leaving the planet in an eerie state of dusk & darkness. The Shadows9, as they are now called, demand an immediate capitulation of the Kingdom and control over all of its planets and cities. They have come to claim the invaluable resources of Vyla, Youtopia’s neighboring giant gas planet. Their threat causes paralyzing fear on the solar system’s capital planet: Any non-compliance by civilians or soldiers will be meet with torture to the degree of their resistance!

Meanwhile, commander Gravity Returns10 and is able to breach the blockade in a dramatic chase. His arrival also comes with the unexpected news that the mighty Seventh Legion under the command of King Aratron’s prodigal son – General Pantagos – is about to arrive at Youtopia.

The good news is accompanied with the appearance of a comet in the night sky, raising hopes that the thousand-year-old Chandrakhani Prophesy – promising victory and peace – could still fulfill itself. With a sense of new hope, the late King’s Daughter Princess Haia is called out of mourning to rally troops behind a new spirit of resistance. In an epic and courageous speech, that she begins with the words “I am your Princess”11, moral is slowly restored.

During the night of the speech, the people of Youtopia witness an astonishing event: The comet impacts the giant gas planet Vyla, a planet seven hundred times the size of their own. Only days later, the incredible gas giant impacted by the comet ignites, flooding Youtopia with rays of orange and red light. In the dawn of Rising Suns12 Vyla now appears as a new star on Youtopia’s horizon!

Commander Gravity’s promise of a massive relief force coming to free them is fullfilled, when the battle proven Seventh Legion arrives at Planet Youtopia. The Royal High Command declares a proclamation of resistance titled Our Fleet United13. Threatened to become the center of gravity and choked from two lines of battle, heavy Shadow forces attack Youtopia and The Invasion Begins14. In The Final Encounter15 between alien and allied forces, the Shadows are defeated in a hard and long battle.

Princess Haia’s Triumph16 is immediately celebrated when her victorious troops return! In a royal ceremony the day after, she is crowned queen of her people. As She Walks17 to ascend the throne of her late father, she smiles at Commander Gravity who she promoted to be her Admiral!

The relief of the people, having survived a horrible ordeal, creates an incredible spirit of happiness and joy. Life is celebrated as never before: The people cheer and celebrate the beginning of what will be Haia’s reign of peace!
