Are you freaking kidding!? If you plug the thing into the ground, you're basically handing yourself over to the subterranean overlords!

Dero wish only best for surfacedwellers. Do not fear the Dero. Dero will take care of you. Do not fear noises from belowground. Surfacedwellers must wear ketchup if possible, please.

Now that I think about it, Alien Invasion Fluxx: The Invasion By Aliens would make a good platform for expansion packs. Maybe twelve cards at a time, each pack representing a *new* group of alien invaders. Each has a handful of thematic new rules and goals. (But sharing the same general ruleset, and most of the same keepers and goals.)

- Shape-changing, person-replacing thing-pods from the Antarctic
- Deros from the Lost Hollow Earth (with dinosaurs!)
- Time-travelling Robots from New NovyaTokyo
- Abominable Snowpersons from Titan
- Government conspirators in extremely dark-grey suits
- Hyperevolved brains and pure-energy creatures from Another Galaxy

There's a whole range of pulp-era SF cliches to mine.

If the Bush administration hasn't subjected you to searches without a
warrant, it's for one reason: they don't feel like it. Not because of
the Fourth Amendment.
