Arthur Dent is the only human to survive the worst Wednesday ever! On this ‘The Worst Wednesday Ever’ the earth was destroyed by Vogons (a pig like alien race) building a new hyperspace highway! Luckily, for Arthur, he and his best friend Ford Prefect, who turns out to be an alien from the outer rim of the galaxy, survived the treacherous road works and stowed aboard the Vogon’s ship, to begin what becomes their journey around the galaxy. Unfortunately for them they’re found out aboard the ship and blasted into space. But you haven’t even heard the worst of it, the Vogon captain before blasting them into space, made them listen to his poetry first, the horror! When you’re blasted into space there’s almost no chance that a ship will run across your path, let alone pick you up,saving you. So what’s the going to be so different for Arthur and Ford?
