We Might Be Heroes

At the height of the Kaiju war, brothers Lee and Zak Adama piloted the Mark-III Jaeger Apollo’s Arrow. Charismatic and popular, they were adored both as pilots and as the sons of the great hero Bill Adama, who’d piloted the Mark-I Jaeger Guardian Husker along with Saul Tigh.  But then Knifehead comes through the breech, and Apollo’s Arrow falls. Devastated by Zak’s death, Lee vanishes into the wild of the Alaskan coast.

Five years later, former politician Laura Roslin finds herself Marshall of the PPDC as Bill Adama’s health starts to deteriorate. Humanity is losing the war with the Kaiju, and only three Jaegers remain in active service. Skeleton Racetrack, piloted by Margaret Edmondson and Hamish McCall, successful defenders of the Siberian Wall for six years. Cylon Colony with three pilot control, taking each pilot from a set of twins - Leo and Ben Conoy, Natalie and Sonya Sechs & Sharon and Athena Valerii. And Stinging Viper, the newest Jaeger in the service, piloted by Cole Taylor and Noel Allison.

But Kara Thrace has been busy restoring an old Jaeger. Under her hands, Apollo’s Arrow has become whole again. Now all Laura needs to do is convince Lee Adama to get back in the cockpit, for the good of all humanity.
