The story takes you 1000 years ahead of time and revolves around the protagonist Nagate. He lived in Sidonia and was arrested by police in the crime of theft. Later he was offered to become a grade pilot whose mission is to protect the Sidonia from the aliens known as Gauna. They were the same aliens who were responsible for the destruction of the earth, but anybody had not seen them for years. They were very powerful. The only way to kill them is to cut the Placenta outside their core.
