Anyone else remember Communist Mutants From Space, circa 1982?
Sort of an early version of the Borg from Star Trek
. The communist mutants came from the planet Russki (what a coincidence!) and assimilated democratic planets throughout the galaxy, turning their inhabitants into communist mutants. Their leader, the Mother Creature (Motherland--another coincidence) became insane by drinking radioactive vodka and embarked on a mission of galactic conquest.
