"...the first comic book series follows 'Rom', an earthbound 'cyborg' from a utopian society on the planet 'Galador', his defeat by the invading 'Dire Wraith' alien race and the continuation of their battle on Earth.
"Unlike the technologically advanced 'Galadorian' civilization, the Dire Wraiths rely primarily on dark magic and their power to change their appearance.
"Years before Rom's arrival on Earth, Galador is threatened by a fleet of ships manned by the Dire Wraiths. Galador's ruler, the 'Prime Director', calls for volunteers to be transformed into 'Spaceknights', cyborg warriors that can defend the planet from the invaders.
"The volunteers are promised that their 'humanity' (body parts) would be removed to accommodate 'bionic' armor. then preserved and restored after the danger was over.
