a stormy night way back in the winter of 2009, mad scientist Doctor
Prospero worked late in his laboratory, aided only by his wife, Gloria,
as he developed the elusive formula with which he would change the world.
The apparently faithful Gloria, however, duped him and sent him off
into hyper-space in an old spacecraft. Unknown to Gloria, her infant
daughter, Miranda, slumbered peacefully in the craft and was now catapulted
light years into the future in her father's company. Fifteen years later,
a routine survey flight under the command of the chisel-jawed Captain
Tempest leaves earth's orbit with a new Science Officer aboard - a hard
and bitter woman. As a shower of meteorites hits the ship, the Science
Officer flees, and the craft is pulled inexorably towards the plant
D'Illyria - the Forbidden Plant. Now the adventure begins .....
