The Interplanetary Strategic Alliance recently repelled an invasion by the Helghast. The Helghan had suddenly emerged from their dismal industrial planet to take control of the galaxy with the help of their industrial power and military might. After a series of battles that pushed the Helghast back to their home planet of Helghan, the ISA is launching an invasion of Helghan to capture emperor Visari and dismantle his military.

Helghan was once "a power generator for half the universe, until Visari turned it into a war machine." Now it's up to a squad of four men, a tiny part of the ISA invasion, to reform Helghan, overcoming horrific native weapons and devoted military forces. Success would mean Helghan's decadent military facilities would be dismantled, and the average citizen will get out of the depressing shantytowns and oppressive work conditions.
