"Hi there! This is Eddie, your shipboard computer here on the B Ark. I could've sworn that wasn't the ship I was on a minute ago. I don't think it was the ship now docked with our starboard airlock, either. It does seem somewhat strange that there's another ship parked through the computer core, but at least that one does look somewhat familiar. Hmm... Anyway, I'm sure that's not important. I just thought everyone might like to know that my readouts indicate that we are now on a direct course for the small blue-green planet now visible through the forward viewscreens, where we will be making a crash landing in approximately six hours. Estimated survival rate is 0%. Oh, and a few of the cryo-units in freezer bay 3 have now completed their wakeup cycles so you'll all have a little more company. I wouldn't want you to be lonely, after all. Share and enjoy!"
The game is set in Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker universe on the Golgafrincham B Ark about six hours before it is supposed to reach the planet it intends to colonize. Due to the presence of other ships, events are not the same as they were in the books, nor are they likely to unfold that way.
