Our haphazard hero, Scott Drizhal, is chosen to go on a solo, 3-year mission to Mars as part of a reality series. 36 days into the mission the show is canceled and Scott is stuck in space. His only known companion is the smart-ass, artificially intelligent ship computer - PHAL9000. Back on Earth the showÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s producer, Jack Spratt, lands himself, Scott's wife and the ground crew into Japanese mafia infested waters... Hilarity ensues.
