Marion `Mick' Mulligan is a failed sci-fi author who dreams of escaping his humdrum life. His dreams become nightmares when he is abducted by extraterrestrials and abandoned on a lawless frontier planet.
Together with his alien buddies Crk-Tish-Crrrkkk and Zeebo and his mechanical sidekick, RUNT, Mulligan must lead a daring jailbreak, battle robo-revolutionaries on an android planet and fight false murder charges on a spacebound sphere of pure water as he desperately tries to find his way home to Earth.
