Justy Ueki Tylor had his life all planned out: join the military, get a cushy desk job, and then retire with a big fat pension check. The perfect plan... until he wandered into a hostage situation and somehow managed to save an admiral! Now Tylor - a man who wouldn't know what discipline was if it bit him on the backside - has been made Captain of the space cruiser Soyokaze. The crew of this run-down ship is the craziest rag-tag team of misfits you're ever likely to see, and they're not too fond of their complacent new leader. But they'd better learn to work together, because they're about to go head to head with the mighty Raalgon Empire. For better or for worse, the Earth's fate has been placed in the hands of a man who's either a total idiot - or an absolute genius!

  • 1993-01-25T09:00:00Z24m

Tylor joins the army due to his attitude about wanting an easy life with free food and lodging, after talking to the recruiter he is accepted.

He then has an aptitude test with an AI system named Betty.

Due to his charm, he destroys the AI system and the USPF believes it to be an enemy spy, allowing Tylor to join due to the coming war.

Doing an assignment completely carefree he enters into a hostage situation, meeting Admiral Hanner, Emi, Yumi, and Commander Star.

Due to insane luck while the situation escalates by both, the terrorists activating a time bomb, and the UPSF arming their weapons on the building ready to fire, Tylor resolves the situation with only two injuries, and zero fatalities.

For his heroics in saving Admiral Hanner, Tylor finds himself promoted, and given the position of captain aboard the battleship Soyokaze. But little does realize the Soyokaze is just a dumping ground for undesirables, and it's just a plan on the part of his superiors to get him out of their hair.

The are heated battles between the Soyokaze's marines and their lone fighter pilot, so Tylor decides to try and solve the problem himself.

Harumi, the new nurse on the Soyokaze, is turning a lot of male heads, including the head of Captain Tylor.

Annoyed by Tylor's recent successes, Admirals Fuji and Mifune attempt to assassinate him by giving him a bomb inside a medal.

Yuriko is becoming increasinly annoyed by the male crew and their lax attitude toward regulations. She attempt to sort out the problem, but is interrupted by an attack by the Raalgons.

Harumi is ordered to take more drastic action in tackling Tylor. However, he captain is too occupied by the ship's beauty contest.

Tylor and the rest of the crew have been demoted. The crew therefore plead to him to appeal the high command's decision in person before a set time.

The ship's fighter pilot, Kojiro, who has a strong dislike of women, is forced to train twin sisters Emi and Yumi Hanner as pilots.

Yuriko is still annoyed by the crew's refusal to stick with the ship's regulations, especially by Kim's attitudes towards uniform.

Everyone on the Soyokaze has heard the tales of how, years ago, a former captain of the Soyokaze and his crew went mad and commited suicide while patrolling the boondocks of space.

Unfortunately, the Soyokaze just happens to be patrolling the same sector of space, on the same date, at almost the same time that the original incident occured!

That can only mean one thing...

Raalgon admiral Donan returns to take his revenge on the Soyokaze. Tylor comes up with a plan to defeat him - sailing directly through the front lines.
