The Space Corps.

It's not just a job.

It's a chance to kill giant bugs on an obscure rock in the middle of the galaxy of Andromeda for very low pay, but a cool uniform.

Back to Linnanmaki.

Joint the Space Corps! Fight meaningless wars on faraway worlds! Yes, join us and when your grandson asks you, "What did you do in the Great Galatic War II?" you won't have to say, "I shoveled dagget dung on Caprica."

And now, more Linnanmaki.

Where else can you blast through hyperspace, be shot through a black hole, and then drop an H-bomb on an unsuspecting group of aliens who never did anything to you?

Why, the Space Corps!

Spread the goodwill of the Planet Earth all over the cosmos! Join the Corps today!

Aliens worlds will love us. Or we'll just blow them up.

One last look at Linnanmaki.

I'm pretty sure Linnanmaki was also brought to us by the letter "K"
As usual, my analysis is free of charge!
