Until the night of his kidnapping Scott Richards was happy with his life as a grifter. He didn't want to be a hero, he didn't want to be taken to a world in the Snickers galaxy but he didn't have a choice. His mission was to save the population of a polluted planet, controlled by computers devoted to running a virtual game designed to entertain a species of unimaginative beings trapped in stasis. He knew he wasn't a hero, but he knew how to make a buck.
