Humanity needs a hero. It gets a thief.
Cade Stryker is a bandit living in the year 5050. He sails his ship in the far reaches of space, trading in stolen goods.
Morals and scruples? He has none of them.
Freedom? He has it. He can fly Andy, his ship, wherever he wants, can't he?
Those humans who are rebelling? Nothing to do with him. If they want to get killed, they are welcome.
Nope. No one thinks Cade Stryker is humanity's last hope.
Unfortunately, he is.
