A Superior lands on present day Earth...
#1
I've been re-reading S.M. Stirling's "Drakon," part of his "Domination" setting. It takes a pretty detailed look at two different Superiors (in OA parlance) who land on present-day (1995ish) Earth with high- and ultra-tech gear.

Unfortunately, the one who wants to introduce advanced technology, clean up Earth's environment, and make the world a better place is the product of a severely fascist, world-conquering culture, so her definitions of "improvement" start with rapid population control (e.g., inoculating human women so their immune systems attack any pregnancy after the first or second) and end with her domination of the planet.

The other Superior is a special forces trooper meant to stop her.

It's a fun read if you're not squeamish. I like it quite a bit more than the rest of the Domination series, which is depressing because the Bad Guys win.
