A dictator minimises resources for people conditional on no subversion by creating internal conflicts, abusing technologies, and trading internationally.
The Dictator, for reasons unknown, has taken over most of the multiverse, and has transported selected individuals to an immense spacecraft. They are under strict rule, and only the Resistance can save them.
Humans turned into soldiers with super powers against their will have broken off from the Dictatorship and have formed the Resistance. 3 years on and the war continues.
