The story takes place 10 years after a long war divided the world into two superpowers: The Union of Zirnitra Republics in the east, and the United Kingdom of Arnak in the west.
These two superpowers are now testing their ambitions against each other in a race for space. We follow the daily life of Lev Leps, a reserve astronaut candidate, and his new teammate, the vampire Irina Ruminescu. In a bold new Operation Nosferatu, Project Mechtat will use Irina as a guinea pig to test the various conditions expected in space, and ultimately as a member of a manned mission. Lev oversees Irina’s training as a cosmonaut. For their own reasons, both dream of going to space.
