Synopsis

The year is 2078 and on a distant mining planet ravaged by a decade of war, scientists have created the perfect weapon: a blade wielding, self-replicating race of killing devices known as Screamers designed for one purpose only--to hunt down and destroy all enemy life forms. But man's greatest weapon has continued to evolve without any human guidance, and now it has devised a new mission: to obliterate all life. Colonel Hendricksson is commander of a handful of Alliance soldiers still alive on Sirius 6B. Betrayed by his own political leaders and disgusted by the atrocities of this never-ending war, Hendricksson decides he must negotiate a seperated peace with the New Economic Bloc's decimated forces. But to do so, he will have to cross a treacherous wasteland where the deadliest threat comes from the very weapons he helped to create. Accompanied by Ace, a young trooper, they set out for the enemy bunker.
