Space in the year 2304: 300 years ago mankind found, in a UFO that had crash-landed in the Nevada desert, the scientific guidelines which they used to colonize Mars half a century later. Now the descendants of the first colonists are on their way back to Earth. Led by their unbelievably wicked Regulator Rogul and his unbelievably even more wicked disciple Jens Maul, they are up to no good. Quite the reverse: the Martians are planning to subjugate the blue planet to their red one. With a huge array of spaceships, a conquest of Earth seems imminent. And only the crazy crew of Dreamship Surprise can “help”: Captain Kork, engineer Shrotty and first officer Mr. Spuck. But instead of fighting intergalactical crime, they are busy with their choreography for the up-coming "Miss Waikiki Pageant". With the help of the space cowboy and taxi-pilot Rock, they set out to save the earth from invasion...
