Nestled deep within Arizona’s red sand deserts, Sky Corps Academy cadets train for years to be paired with a noble extraterrestrial Robo Mech.
Mech Cadet Yu follows humble housekeeper Stanford Yu, treated like the trash he sweeps away until a surprise encounter with a Robo Mech derails the Academy’s plans for their top cadet. It will be tricky work convincing military folk he and his rogue bot are worthy of battling baddies: will they be left picking up the pieces of Sky Corps latest invention instead?
