It has been over 1500 years after Triss, not that any beast has been looking to the past. At least not the old past.
They came from the sky, almost 3 years ago to the day; the strogg came down in their butt ugly ships. At first we all thought they had come to conquer us, but we dropped that idealism when the forces at Redwall shot down one of the Strogg mother ships, and boarded it. They thought they would fined advanced technology, or one of the alien leaders, but they didn’t. What they did find was so shocking that when the news broke, all of the earth was united for the cause of defending the planet.
The Strogg had not come for slaves… they came for parts. Heads, arms, legs, guts, any thing they could get their rusty medal claws on and integrate with their own hive mind.
We bet them back, but at the cost of millions of lives. Now its time for revenge.
Operation: Alien over lord is what they called it, a massive invasion. Hundreds of ships, and over a billion squirrels, weasels, foxes, badgers, and mice, willing and edger to paint the Strogg home world with blood.
