galactic freeway Arthur Dent is plucked off the planet by his friend Ford Prefect a researcher for the revised edition of The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy who for the last fifteen years has been posing as an out of work actor p Together this dynamic pair begin a journey through space aided by quotes from The Hitchhiker s Guide A towel is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have and a galaxy full of fellow travelers Zaphod Beeblebrox the two headed three armed ex hippie and totally out to lunch president of the galaxy Trillian Zaphod s girlfriend formally Tricia McMillan 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 former graduate student who is obsessed with the disappearance of all the ballpoint pens he bought over the years p p Where are these pens Why are we born Why do we die Why do we spend so much time between wearing digital watches For all the answers stick your thumb to the stars And don t forget to bring a towel p p b The Restaurant at the End of the Universe b Facing annihilation at the hands of the warlike Vogons is a curious time to have a craving for tea It could only happen to the cosmically displaced Arthur Dent and his curious comrades in arms as they hurtle across space powered by pure improbability and desperately in search of a place to eat p p Among Arthur s motley shipmates are Ford Prefect a longtime friend and expert contributor to i The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy i Zaphod Beeblebrox the three armed two headed ex president of the galaxy Tricia McMillan a fellow Earth refugee who s gone native her name is Trillian now and Marvin the moody android who suffers nothing and no one very gladly Their destination The ultimate hot spot for an evening of apocalyptic entertainment and fine dining where the food literally speaks for itself p p Will they make it The answer hard to say But bear in mind that the Hitchhiker s Guide deleted the term Future Perfect from its pages since it was discovered not to be p p What s such fun is how amusing the galaxy looks through Adams sardonically silly eyes p p b Life the Universe and Everything b The unhappy inhabitants of planet Krikkit are sick of looking at the night sky above their heads so they plan to destroy it The universe that is Now only five individuals stand between the white killer robots of Krikkit and their goal of total annihilation p p They are Arthur Dent a mild mannered space and time traveler who tries to learn how to fly by throwing himself at the ground and missing Ford Prefect his best friend who decides to go insane to see if he likes it Slartibartfast the indomitable vicepresident of the Campaign for Real Time who travels in a ship powered by irrational behavior Zaphod Beeblebrox the two headed three armed ex head honcho of the Universe and Trillian the sexy space cadet who is torn between a persistent Thunder God and a very depressed Beeblebrox p p How will it all end Will it end Only this stalwart crew knows as they try to avert universal Armageddon and save life as we know it and don t know it p p b So Long and Thanks for All the Fish b Back on Earth with nothing more to show for his long strange trip through time and space than a ratty towel and a plastic shopping bag Arthur Dent is ready to believe that the past eight years were all just a figment of his stressed out imagination But a gift wrapped fishbowl with a cryptic inscription the mysterious disappearance of Earth s dolphins and the discovery of his battered copy of i The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy i all conspire to give Arthur the sneaking suspicion that something otherworldly is indeed going on p p God only knows what it all means And fortunately He left behind a Final Message of explanation But since it s light years away from Earth on a star surrounded by souvenir booths finding out what it is will mean hitching a ride to the far reaches of space aboard a UFO with a giant robot But what else is new p p b Mostly Harmless b It s easy to get disheartened when your planet has been blown up the woman you love has vanished due to a misunderstanding about space time the spaceship you are on crashes on a remote and Bob fearing planet and all you have to fall back on are a few simple sandwich making skills However instead of being disheartened Arthur Dent makes the terrible mistake of starting to enjoy life a bit and immediately all hell breaks loose p p Hell takes a number of forms there s the standard Ford Prefect version in the shape of an all new edition of i The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy i and a totally unexpected manifestation in the form of a teenage girl who startles Arthur Dent by being his daughter when he didn t even know he had one p p Can Arthur save the Earth from total multidimensional obliteration Can he save the Guide from a hostile alien takeover Can he save his daughter Random from herself Of course not He never works out exactly what is going on Will you p p b Young Zaphod b The story is a prequel to the events in i The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy i and has the young Zaphod Beeblebrox working as a salvage ship operator He guides some bureaucrats to a crashed spaceship that may be leaking some dangerous materials radioactive toxic and otherwise hazardous by products which were destined to be thrown into a black hole The bureaucrats swear that it is perfectly safe When asked why they want to see it if that is true they claim that they like looking at things that are perfectly safe p p Since this was before Zaphod blocked off sections of his own brain for the presidency readers are able to glimpse what his original personality was like His general speech patterns and goof off personality are the same but he seems to have moral views and is more likely to go off on life threatening and exciting quests for the greater good p p Throughout the story it is emphasised that there is something particularly dangerous on board that ought to have been utterly destroyed but is feared to have escaped p p Ultimately it is revealed that the something was actually three identical Designer People The personalities seem totally benign which is what makes them so dangerous The ship is filled with substances so dangerous that they are safe because no one who would actually use them would be let near The personalities products of a Sirius Cybernetics Corporation project however have custom personalities that could not naturally exist There is
