• The Rangers are from Androzani Major in the year 5345 and met Madge when they were in the process of 'harvesting' trees for fuel. Although Droxil tries to instill his unit with a sense of efficiency—reminding them that they are locked in a military engagement—his two subordinates, Billis and Ven-Garr, are more than likely to have sympathy for any civilians they meet. The Rangers' equipment is both awe-inspiring and awful. While their Androzani Harvester is a mighty machine loaded with "wow" factor, their scanning devices have trouble detecting weapons when the subject is wearing wool.
