After narrowly escaping death, Koko Martstellar (ex-corporate mercenary) and Jedidiah Flynn (depressed former sky-cop) are busy putting their lives back together, running a saloon/brothel on The Sixty Islands-the world's most violent and decadent resort. But when bounty agent Jackie Wire comes to collect the outstanding price on Koko's head, it's time again for Koko and Flynn to make tracks. Fleeing pell-mell across the Pacific and shipwrecking along a thought-to-be uninhabitable coast, things only go from bad to worse for our heroes...but, hey, that's the 26th century for you. Buckle up, buttercup. Only the mighty survive.
