Astra's ship is in trouble. There's something very sinister lurking in the canteen. A cakey monstrosity on the war path. And then there's the Poglites - a space salvage crew who have invaded the ship in their quest for spoonage!
Astra and her robot friend Pilbeam are the only things standing in the way of the ship's destruction!
