Just when you thought life was cool, the Bacterion Beast Squadron launches a massive counterattack that makes all other intergalactic battles seem like picnics. These plutonian chow hounds are starving for a victory. And if you're not careful, they'll char your hide, then serve you up like a stuffed Sarubian Space Pig!
