Six year olds, massive cannons, burping babies, galactic conspiracies and hunted by two armies while dealing with his mother. Can't a marine get any peace?
Being mugged by a six-year-old girl didn’t do much for ex-marine Buthedra Klaxsteen’s image. But given the choice of either handing over his milk or being incinerated into fine ash, Buthedra reluctantly complies—then becomes embroiled in a conspiracy involving two warring species which stretches from one end of the universe to the other. Now wanted for crimes he didn’t commit, he’s on the run—while both deadly armies try to hunt him down. He suffers through all of this to discover that the girl and her baby brother are the most dangerous people he knows. Thankfully they’re on his side.
Buthedra’s descent into hell and hilarity is accompanied by the two earthling children, the aberration known as his cat, a bipolar robot—and his mother. It’s enough to drive any Tarsian insane.
