Mission five from the hilarious Platoon F comedy series!
After a close call in the year 2440 at the planet called Earth, the crew of the SSMC Reluctant makes a quick escape back to their home of Segnal. However, Geezer didn't have time to set the clock on the GONE Drive to return them back to their own era, and things have changed greatly in the Segnal System over the past 500 years.
The system is ruled by Synthetic Lifeforms now, and they find humans and standard robots an affront to their intellectual capacity. From their perspective, only Synthetic Lifeforms should be allowed to live.
But there is an exception. The crew of Platoon F originally contained the 12 models of androids used to build the new society, and since it was Captain Don Harr and Rear Admiral Parfait who fought to keep the androids and Platoon F together in the first place, they are considered heroes and founding fathers of New Segnal.
And where to keep heroes from the distant past? Why, a museum, of course!
Now the crew must find a way out, get back to their own era, and set everything right so that the future they've just witnessed doesn't actually happen!
Readers and reviewers have compared the Platoon F series to the works of authors such as Harry Harrison, Douglas Adams, Robert Asprin, and John DeChancie. Fans of Bill, the Galactic Hero, The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, and Phule's Company will find a new, fun comedic science fiction universe to play in. Space ships, space marines, robots, androids, technology, time travel, alien races, and good old-fashioned military quirks fill Platoon F.
