NU-EARTH, A PLANET RAVAGED BY A GALAXY-WIDE WAR BETWEEN THE SOUTHERS AND NORTS, ITS ATMOSPHERE POISONED BY CHEMICAL WEAPONS. CREATED TO FIGHT IN SUCH CONDITIONS WERE THE G.I.S—GENETICALLY ENGINEERED INFANTRYMEN. BUT NOW ONLY ONE REMAINS, THE MAN KNOWN AS... ROGUE TROOPER. ROGUE HAS RESCUED A SOUTHER PRISONER—BREAKER— FROM HIS NORT CAPTORS, AND IS ESCORTING HIM BACK TO FRIENDLY LINES. BUT THE SOUTHER AUTHORITIES WANT THEIR LAST G.I. BACK, DEAD OR ALIVE, AND AN ELITE SQUAD OF MILITARY POLICE ENFORCERS IS ON ITS WAY TO MAKE SURE THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENS...
