Backstory

Twinkle, twinkle, little star, how I
wonder WHERE you are … The universe is going dark and it’s up to you Konki,
Stellar Guardian, to put things right. Dr. Dark Matter and his roving band of
space thieves have stolen many of the Constellation Stones that make up the
heavens. Some stones have been sold to unscrupulous space types while others
were lost during the getaway. Whatever the situation, you must come through.
Suit-up, power-up, and live up to the task at hand. Recover the lost
Constellation Stones and once again bring light to the night sky.
