With Colonel Manny Lopez now in charge, Captain Joey R. Czerinski and his ragtag band of legionnaires are sporting blue peacekeeper armbands and helmets to head off hostilities between the scorpions and the spiders on planet New Colorado. But with nukes and an old foe making a return appearance, America's Galactic Foreign Legion has a full plate - as long as Taco Bell and Pizza Hut keep their doors open, and Czerinski handles it all with his usual paranoid aplomb. The absurdity continues in the tenth installment of the seriously screwy science fiction space saga.
Blue is not Captain Joey R. Czerinski’s favorite color – especially not to wear in the New Gobi Desert on planet New Colorado. Blue doesn’t blend with dust and dirt – it’s a beacon inviting terrorists and insurgents to take potshots at him and fellow legionnaires newly assigned as ‘peacekeepers’ to control hostilities between the spiders and scorpions. But whoever put Czerinski in charge of keeping the peace in this volatile area certainly didn’t think things through. A paranoid psychopath interested only in personal gain is not the best babysitter to keep two warring alien factions at bay.
With the rise of two new terrorist leaders – one scorpion and one spider – things heat up in a hurry with the threat of nuclear detonation. But there’s always a profit to be made even amid the bombings and riots – even if somebody has to take a dive to fix the fight. And as long as Pizza Hut and Taco Bell keep their doors open, everybody’ll be happy ... at least for a while.
An old foe makes another showing and scares the bejesus out of Sergeant Green and everyone else in the hallowed tunnels of the Legion’s armory and detention dungeon. Czerinski and his band face dangers, and sometimes those dangers get the best of a few. Death in war is an inevitability, but the trick is to keep on laughing at Death and going about the business of being the craziest bunch of soldiers this side of the galaxy! Laughter is truly the best arsenal in the tenth installment of the seriously screwy military space saga gone wrong.
