“AZooNY’s Mars Opera is somewhat of a cross between the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and a Monty Python production. Oh, also with a little bit of Looney Tunes cartoons thrown in.” —The Galactical New Times

Please welcome Empress Nya. Your most powerful of powers, keepers of keeps, joker of joke-ets, wisest of the wisers, all round excellence of greatness, and a few other things I can’t remember. —PLANKCÁ
Most of the action takes place on other planetary worlds or during space transit. An aspect of Mission Control is usually present.
Two space travelers from Earth are sent to repair a seemingly broken Mars exploration rover-prober. Unbeknownst to Mission Control, they get caught up in zany adventures involving space aliens and odd galactical situations. They then must stop the Earth from being overrun by an audience suggested and alien implanted menacing object. But in the end, who ultimately is the target of alien trickery?
It’s the Mars curse. Half of all Mars missions inexplicably fail. The reason’s always different, every time. –Mission Control Scientist
The ending of Balloon Land (demo). Dreeson (Tim Cochran) is on Ballo’s (Michael McMurray) Land of HE, which is a world with a helium-based atmosphere. It eventually affects the pitch of their voices:-).
What a fun odyssey that flows like a book from the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. The plot and characters are well developed which opens up the opportunity for additional sequels. So put on your UTTs (UniTrans-Trolisizers) and jump into the race! –Victor Shalogin, World Galaxy Press
