what does "five-tomato" mean on this context?
The phrase which quite confused me is as follows:
"The he would be drifting in Voidsville, out in the cold and dark, like a torn-loose astronaut in one of those five-tomato space flics."
Well, Flic means "police"in slang, but "five-tomato"r? Not even get a clue. Does it have any story, perhaps relative to SF or something like that, if using "space flics" as a hint.
Thanks for help＾＾
