* EcoTerrorist: ''Flinx in Flux'' features as its primary antagonists a fanatical ecoterrorist group who believe in destroying all forms of "exploitation" of the natural order by humans. Their current target: a small genetic engineering firm working on the planet Longtunnel, which is renowned for the plasticity of its native lifeforms. Flinx gets involved when he accidentally rescues one of the company's researchers, the lovely and talented Clarity Held, who was kidnapped, interrogated, beaten, and left for dead on Alaspin. The group later mounts a full-scale armed assault on the Longtunnel facilities, and eventually tries to capture [[spoiler:Flinx himself, once they learn what he is]]. In this final battle, they pull a NiceJobFixingItVillain by accidentally breaking the mechanism [[spoiler:keeping Flinx and Pip asleep]].
