Berning Away

The scenario is set about nine years after all of Earth’s governments have basically surrendered to an Alien Invasion Force, supposedly without much fighting back. I guess the writers took Stephen Hawking seriously on that point. Anyway, the Aliens are called Legislators. They are basically governing from the shadows and having the Police Force act […]
