His name was James Thomas, he was rich but could not remember how he came about his money. His staff was loyal to a fault,but even they seemed strange. Ih his garage he had an old car that sat by itself,but had no clue why he had it. He had no job , a few friends,his email had a special group, Guardians of Light, of people from all over the world but he had no idea who they were.

Today was a day just like any day in his life. he checked his schedule, a dinner with a lady from a rich family probaly looking to marry her off to him. It would be a good excuse to get out of the house at least. that was later that night so he was free for a bit. he thought he would go for a drive. He went to the garage and drive the old clunker, well actually it was a vintage corvette. He jumped in ,checked the gas, It was full. and took off. He looked back at his mansion not knowing this was the last time he would see it for 2 weeks.

As he was driving down a country road that led to the ocean. He saw a car uphead with its hood up and a beautiful red head kicking the flat tire. He pulled over and offered her assistance,but her spare was also flat. So he offered to take her to the next town to find a garage. She agreed and hoped in ,her name was Judy Taylor,she was visiting a friend of hers from college. As they were driving and having small talk,she noticed a small blinking red light on the dash and asked if that was the low fuel light. The gauge said 3/4 full so that was not it.

He pulled over to look to see what it might be, as soon as he stopped his whole life changed. A light sprang from the dash and a flood of memories from over 500 years poured into his head. He was a Commander in the Galatic Federation assigned to guard this system, his unit was named the Guardians of Light. Ms Taylor watched in fascination as all this was going on.

The light was a warning signal that the system had been breached by unknown forces. He had to get to the main base. To decide if he needed to activate the rest of his team. He looked at ms Taylor and said i'm sorry but we need to make a small side trip.
with that he pressed a button and his car transformed into a interplanetary shuttle, Where are we going she managed to blurt out, The moon he shouted as he engaged the thrusters and they headed skyward.

James sat back and closed his eyes,trying to make sense of this new knowledge. Judy was fast asleep in the other seat. The computer announced 15 min till arrival at the moon base.All the controls seemed very familiar.

Meanwhile back at his mansion,his staff also were awakened and began opening the launch pad hidden beneath the mansion. the checked the automated machinery that kept the equipment not in tip top shape but also added any new updates that were sent on a regular schedule from the closest star base. the last one sent was just 5 years old,so the equipment was pretty up to date. A signal was sent to the moon base to activate the bases sensors which lay dorment so as not to be detected by any stray scout ships.but they need to know quickly what the threat was and how big of a threat it was.

5 min from the base the first images were sent back to the commander screen. It was not a false alarm. a lone Throgan scout was detected. The sensors than switched to passive mode so as not to be detected,that of course reduced their range though.Throgans were a race that captured primitive races and used their resources till the planet was dead than moved on to others. If earth was detected a cultivation fleet would be dispatched. Commander James made up his mind and had his Fighter launched from the moon to rendevous with his shuttle.He pushed the engines to max,which woke up Judy. Looks like we need to make another detour, She screamed where are we going now? Commander james yelled pluto as the shuttle blasted forward.
