Zac was the most senior REV alive, a miracle of science and a legend in the Corps. His job was to be the battering ram for the Marines, the first in while revved up on NT-4. During a Run, he was a mindless killing machine, dangerous to both foe and friend alike. But something was happening to Zac. Long after most other REVs were dead, burned out or "retired", Zac was growing stronger, more powerful. He was also doing what no REV had ever done before during a Run. He was beginning to think.
REVs are mankind's ultimate mechanized warriors, chemically-enhanced Marines with super strength, speed and durability. They're also Earth's not-so-secret weapon against the alien Antaere. They're respected by our allies and feared by our foes. That is, until a recent REV mission goes horribly wrong, turning the planets of the Grid against the Humans. Now Lt. Zac Murphy and his team of super REVs are hunted by the aliens and hated by their fellow Humans. Only by proving that the original mission was a setup from the beginning can they clear their names and restore the reputation of the REVs.
For the past 20 years, humanity - along with its ultimate weapon, the superhuman warriors known as REVs - has been at war with the more powerful and technologically advanced Antaere race. As latecomers to the galactic community, the humans have been playing catch-up, proving that their innate skill at waging war can help skip a lot of steps on the way to galactic domination. That was until two years ago. Now nearly all the civilizations within the local Grid of colonized planets have turned against the humans.
After a devastating loss to the alien Antaere, the forces of Earth have been driven back to the Solar System, to wait helplessly while the aliens muster enough strength to make one final push. Now the salvation of the Human race lies with Captain Zac Murphy and his natural REVs, the unforeseen byproducts of an experiment using super-enhanced Marines as the ultimate killing machines. With the human military now reduced to a shadow of its former self, the REV super-warriors must pull triple duty.
As the story of the REVs continue, the forces at work - either to destroy these enhanced super-warriors or to promote them - come together in a fight for the destiny of human evolution. And while the powers-that-be are tearing themselves apart with this internal struggle, mankind also faces the continuing threat of the alien Antaere...plus something new from outside the Grid. Just when the Humans thought they had the war won, this new threat appears on the scene and messes up everything.
