Our hero, Scott Drizhal, is chosen to go on a solo, 3 year mission to Mars as part of a reality series. Unfortunately the show is canceled and Scott is now stuck on a round-trip ticket to Mars and back. With no company in deep space other than a smart-ass, artificially-intelligent ship computer (PHAL), his wife declaring him legally dead so she can claim the millions in insurance, a Napoleonic producer whose hubris lands him and the show into Japanese mafia infested waters and a malfunctioning, prototype ship that was never meant to fly to Mars… Hilarity ensues.

"Good Grief"

July 21, 2010
Scott suffers from the classic Five Stages of Grief. Making personal, desperate calls to the President of the United States and wallowing in his own depression, one might assume he is falling deeper into his own form of space madness. Or is he simply running away? Becks learns that Scott was fired 9 months ago, and the creditors are repossessing her shoes.
