Young Private Danny Franks was just a raw recruit until he was drafted into the ragtag guerrilla unit known as BAD COMPANY, commanded by the psychopathic Kano. The conflict ended when Ararat exploded, and much of Bad Company was killed or listed MIA — now, as Earth prepares to mark the ten-year anniversary, Franks and fellow ex-soldiers Thrax, Mad Tommy and Fly-Trap are living in a veterans’ compound, dosed on psyche-chem to keep the nightmares at bay...
