The people of Ardonnar fall for the aliens who promise to help in their time of need. However, the true mission of the Ineans is soon learned and the people fight back against the invaders.
The Ineans, however, would discover a use for the Ardonnarian people and choose to hold off annihilating them. Choosing instead to enslave them for their insidious purpose.
This delay allows groups of resistance fighters, working together across their planet to keep the Ineans off balance. This gives the military, working on a small moon called Anaru, time to build hybrid bombers to attack the Ineans.
With time running out for the Ardonnarians, they take the fight to the Ineans.
