For the 73rd class of cadets of the Defense University of the small planet Kibi, a shakedown cruise on the fleet's new starship "Amaterasu" is a fitting lead-up to graduation.

When their planetary government surrenders without a struggle, the cadets decide to launch their own war, aboard the "Amaterasu".
