Gothra is a very old battleship originally built by the Noropian Gorts for planetary invasion. She has a long and glorious history that ended when the Galactic Council Exploited a Gort weakness and she was forced into retirement where she was used as a war museum. Her A.I. was never decommissioned and still craves a little action, but she serves her Captain first and above all else.
Ralf has been hired to destroy a distant planet after the Trans-galactic Counsel receives a threatening message of universal conquest from an ancient radio transmission. What they didn’t know when they hired him is that he’s actually a really nice guy and kind of a procrastinator. Ralf, experiencing many setbacks in his personal and professional life, takes them up on their “offer” in hopes of finally finding the prestige and respect that he craves.
When Ralf arrives at his destination (Earth) however, he discovers the wonders of a living planet, its inhabitants and immediately winds up in debt, ignored and develops a crush. Now, Ralf attempts to placate his conscience by reasoning that he could rule the planet rather than destroy it.
Ralf’s interplanetary balancing act oscillates from the thought provoking to the absurd as he hovers over The Button wrestling with his conscience.
