Extreme Edition 5 and Invasion!
Savage evades a mauling from the dogs and capture by the Volgans.
FIRSTS & LASTS
First Invasion! two parter.
The prisoner's uniforms contain a seam of dried blood to attract the dogs if they ever escaped.
The Volgans have been experimenting on dogs.
They escape the pack of dogs, with Savage freewheeling their car down the hill and into a swamp. Savage realises that Frost's uniform is attracting the dogs and throws it aboard a Volgan hovercraft causing the dogs to attack the Volgans.
He helps Savage rescue Frost.
He strips out of his prison uniform to confuse the dogs.
Maybe a dozen. Savage manages to set the wild dogs on a Hovercraft crew, some of them probably drown.
Silk: "We've outstripped those hounds - but this hill's almost vertical!"
Volgan: "No! The prison uniform with the blood trail!"
Drowning Volgans let out an "Aaieee!"

The dried blood is another great example of the methodical cruelty of the Volgans and Savage setting one enemy on the other is neat. Frost's significance will presumably never be referred to again and what is the point of Silk?
