Blows Against The Empire retells the story of Jefferson Starship's legendary, Hugo Award-nominated concept album of the same name. This psychedelic space adventure centers on PETER & SERENITY, a pair of young lovers on the run from the fascist law enforcement of Amerikon at the dawn of the 1970s. Exhausted by a life spent barely escaping the clutches of authoritarians, Peter & Serenity reach their breaking point with the world when they discover that Serenity is pregnant. Wanting a better world for their daughter, the pair join with a radical hippie collective to steal an experimental starship that can shepherd them across the galaxy. To create the life their daughter deserves, they’ll challenge an authoritarian superpower, fight to stay true to their compassion and morals, and brave the mysteries of the cosmos.
