Bolo Mark XXXIII Sherman, the last surviving Bolo of the last organised human military force in the Human-Melconian War , is activated by sensors picking up the trail of a Melconian lifeboat.

General Drak, the last commander of the Melconian armed forces, is rusticating in a low tech colony he founded when death and destruction returns: a Bolo still operating upon orders to exterminate all Melconians without exception.
