Colonists on a distant planet fleeing memories of a vicious war and overcrowding settle on an Earth-like planet. A decade later the planet is attacked and the settlers must defend themselves while dealing with dwindling resources and natural disasters. Their answer is to genetically engineer "dragons" to replace their worn and broken flying machines.
