Seconds before the Earth is demolished for a galactic freeway, Ford Prefect, a researcher for the revised Guide, saves Arthur Dent. Together they stick out their thumbs to the stars and begin a wild journey through time and space.

Together these dynamic pair begin a journey through space aided by quotes from The Hitchhiker’s Guide and a galaxy-full of fellow travelers: Zaphod Beeblebrox—the two-headed, three-armed ex-hippie and out-to-lunch president of the galaxy; Trillian, Zaphod’s girlfriend, whom Arthur tried to pick up at a cocktail party once upon a time zone; Marvin, a paranoid, brilliant, and chronically depressed robot; Veet Voojagig, a graduate student who is obsessed with the disappearance of all the ballpoint pens he bought over the years.
