Cardboard collides with CGI as B-Movie, ray-gun hero Captain Eager (James Vaughan) blunders into digital space. Out of date and damaged by the past; Captain Eager is resurrected by the sprawling galactic corporation - MacroSpace. Corporate Space Manager Damien briefs our hero - his mission is to investigate the villainous Colonel Regamun (Rick Leaf), a maverick 'client' causing trouble in the Veritan Sector, and perhaps in the process uncover the truth behind the mysterious Mark of Voth.
Piloting his space rocket the Victory and along with Professor Moon, trusted side-kick Scrutty (Mark Heap), Scamp the Space Dog and old flame Jenny (Tamsin Greig) - Captain Eager and his team jump in to the digital age to save the day!
Follow the surreal adventures of a forgotten Space hero battling against cardboard sets and dastardly villains. It's an off-beat comedy harkening back to a more gentle age of Science Fiction where aliens are green and no one is completely done in.
