The tyrants who rule the Light Universe pass their essence onto their successor upon their demise, while their still-conscious brains are kept in a vault; their chief resource is Lexx, the most-powerful mobile weapon in the universe, which can only be commanded only by the keeper of the hand-key. The previous incumbent wiped out the Brunen-G race, except for Kai, whom he kept in a state of amnesiac suspended animation, to be revived by proto-blood for short periods and used as an assassin.

Lexx is one of the greatest sci-fi shows to come along in years. The plots are fantastic while the visuals are breathtaking.
