“How’s it going, Captain?”

“As planned sir. We’re presently retrieving Vine 23Z from the last of the buildings. It has sucked up and digested all human material and associated artefacts. We will bring it back on board, flush out and dispose of its stomach contents, then send it back out to complete its work.”

“When do you expect to finish Captain?”

“By Friday, sir. Once we’ve completed this sector the whole planet will have been thoroughly cleansed.”

“Excellent news. I will let our clients on Plant Volgon know that their new home is  nearly ready for them to move in to.”
