Backstory is in the third photo. The Alien Invader is feared for its “villainous crew of hideous mutants, hostile aliens, and outcast earthlings who stop at nothing to get what they want.” Mos Eisley with rocket engines and red lightning decals, in other words.

    I think the “outcast earthlings” must be the undesirables we launched during NASA’s Murder Shuttle to the Sun program. I thought it was only an urban legend, but not only was it apparently true, but with the added twist of having been captured by hostile aliens and hideous mu-tants.

    Looks to me like Revell was taking a bath on that Space Shuttle mold they commissioned. After all, no kid likes educational toys. “What are we gonna do with all these space shuttles?” “Paint ’em black and rebrand them!”

    I suppose that floating, populated planetary fragment in the distance is the outpost for the outcast earthlings, hideous mutants and hostile aliens?

    If you choose to land the craft and refuel/resupply, turn to page 82. If you choose to ravage the population and drain them of their resources, turn to page 96. 😉

    “In 2172, a crack commando unit was sent to an off-world prison for a crime they didn’t commit. These mutants promptly escaped from a maximum security orbital stockade to the San Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the Terrestrial government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help – and if you can find them – maybe you can hire… the A-lien Team.”

    I hope those mutants remember to check the o rings.
