Facing (and hopefully conquering) such diverse adversaries as an eight-foot tall greenish mercenary by the name of Grobut, an extremely nasty Space Shuttle dealer, and the bulk of the Artooroian Fleet, comprising nearly 1,500 space craft, Midge and Stick face the adventure of a lifetime. And incidentally, a lifetime which may well be dramatically curtailed if they fail. Will Midge and Stick succeed, or will they simply give up on page 491? Find out for yourself!

Should they fail, at least you'll have had a good read and gained a lot of interesting knowledge which may even help you beat your friends the next time you play a trivia quiz game!
