When a squadron of rookie pilots arrive in the midst of a space battle they find themselves heavily outnumbered and outgunned. When a trainee pilot and her gunner crash land on an alien planet it looks like they will be marooned unless they can salvage parts from a nearby ship. However, there is another survivor - an enemy pilot who is determined to prevent their escape.
