Set in the not so distant future, a group of SPACE-EX employees spend their days doing what they always do: getting sent all over the universe to mindlessly load and unload cargo bays. In the hierarchy of cool space jobs, these guys are on the bottom rung. Their only relief is playing WARFIGHTER, a massive multi-player online game, against punk-ass children from back home and seeing if there’s anything good to eat in the mess hall.

That is, until, they have to deliver a package marked “classified” to a planet more dangerous than they’ve ever faced before. The rag-tag team of slackers, malcontents, and gamers have to put all their skills (or lack-there-of) to good use simply to stay alive.

Disillusioned by his father’s rule and anxious to begin his own dynasty, Ming engineers events to seat himself upon the imperial throne of Mongo, sooner rather than later. Ming’s ascent to power is as much a descent into his own depravity as he strikes alliances and sparks wars of expansion to cement his claim, finding time for love (or lust, depending on one’s point-of-view) and uniting all of Mongo under one rule… HIS. Ming’s adversaries underestimate him at their peril. He has a plan. In fact, he ALWAYS has a plan… and it doesn’t end on Mongo. Armed with mindboggling weapons of planetary destruction, Ming the Merciless won’t settle for anything less than dominion over his world… and every galaxy in the known universe!
