In 1973, an invasion of aliens known as BETA upon Earth is driving human civilization into near collapse. Facing an enormous, unstoppable horde of enemy forces with weapons making aircraft almost useless, mankind developed large humanoid fighting machines called Tactical Surface Fighters and deployed them to defensive lines throughout the world. However, all these efforts could do was stall the BETA temporarily, and mankind is forced to abandon continental Eurasia. For the next 30 years, mankind finds itself bogged down in an endless war against the BETA without any hope of victory.
In 1998, BETA make landfall on the Empire of Japan's Kyushu Prefecture, and in short order the Imperial Capital of Kyoto is lost despite a desperate defense.
Fast-forward to 2001. As Imperial Japan defends the front lines of the Far East, it faces difficulties in the development of a next-generation TSF. A solution appears in the XFJ program, a joint development between the US and Japan, under the aegis of Project PROMINENCE, a UN-sponsored program intended to spur next-generation TSF development, using test pilots, scientists and engineers from around the world, gathering at Alaska's Yukon Base.
Enter 2nd Lieutenant Yuuya Bridges of the US Army, for whom assignment to the Project felt too much like a demotion, 1st Lieutenant Yui Takamura of the Imperial Royal Guards, head of the Japanese side of the XFJ program and Sole Survivor of her unit from the Battle of Kyoto, and the "Scarlet Sisters", 2nd Lieutenants Cryska Barchenowa and Inia Sestina of the Soviet Army. Coming together from different backgrounds, their respective pasts and meeting at Yukon, along with the other participants in Project PROMINENCE, will have important consequences for the Project, and indeed Yukon itself.
