The Fifth Battalion

The Fifth Battalion is a story of Norman Bolstad, a gunnery sergeant of an ancient failed invasion of Earth, currently eking a living as a lab technician in San Francisco. Over 5,000 years ago, Baltizor Confederacy attempted to invade Earth, unaware of their arch-enemy, the Murabi Empire, already using this remote planet as a prison facility for their most incorrigible criminals, serving the “forever dead” sentence. The entire Baltizor advance contingent was wiped out by the prison guards, derailing the invasion.

As a part of their sentence, the prisoners of Earth had been forcibly stripped of any awareness of their immortal spiritual nature. The convicts believe themselves to be one-life animals, who die forever with every successive reincarnation. However, unlike the convicts of Earth, the fallen invaders, having never been sentenced and having avoided the original brainwashing treatment, retained their memory and awareness. The Baltizor POWs have been unsuccessfully attempting to escape from Earth for a very long time.
