It is called a Berserker team — reckless, desperate volunteers recruited by the Company to destroy alien infestations.
Based on the spaceship Nemesis, it consists of three brutal ex-cons who do all the grunt work and the Berserker itself, code-named MAX: an armed and armored exoskeleton powered by the living brain of what was once a human, configured into an unstoppable killing machine.
When the Nemesis is sent to a massive space station, D.S. 949, the team finds an alien hive, the largest in history, with nearly a thousand hapless humans cocooned and incubated. The team mission: to destroy the aliens while leaving the terminal intact. The mission seems like suicide to the bug hunters and their small support staff. And that is perfectly fine for the Company... which wants no witnesses left to the terrifying secret of D.S. 949.
The Berserker team--ex-convicts led by the skeletal alien-killing machine called MAX--attempts to rescue a thousand humans from the clutches of Aliens.
- Aliens: Berserker would be the final Aliens novel that is an adaptation of a comic book; the following book, Aliens: Original Sin, is an original story, as are all the subsequent novels.
