A beautiful and mysterious female passenger, a loony inventor with a basement full of deadly weapons, and a dangerous run-down teleporter built by a long-lost alien civilisation. These are just some of the challenges facing Hal Spacejock as he fights for survival in the cut-throat interstellar cargo business.
Join the incompetent Hal and his long-suffering metal sidekick Clunk for a second serve of interplanetary chaos stuffed with more laughs than a cracker factory and more action than a politician’s expense account.
