The latest B-format book from 2000 AD is one of its all-time classics. By 2531, man had colonised the solar system. Warfare and barbarity had all but been forgotten. But then the Geeks arrived – a deadly alien species with only one thing on their dark, unfathomable minds…the extinction of the human race! And so, man was forced to fight once more, this time amongst the stars in space patrol ships crewed by the V.C.s (or Vacuum Cleaners). New recruit Steve Smith is ready for action. But first he must face a confrontation closer to home, and gain the acceptance of his battle-hardened crew mates.
