Abstract:

This is the story of Arthur Dent, who seconds before Earth is demolished to make way for a galactic freeway, is plucked off the planet by his friend, Ford Prefect, who has been posing as an out-of-work actor for the last fifteen years but is really a researcher for the revised edition of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Together they begin a journey through the galaxy aided by quotes for The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, with the words don't panic written on the front. In their travels they meet: Zaphod Beeblebrox-the two headed, three-armed ex-hippie and totally out-to-lunch President of the Galaxy. Trillian-Zaphod's girl friend, formerly Tricia McMillan, whom Arthur once tried to pick up at a cocktail party. Marvin-a paranoid android, a brilliant but chronically depressed robot. Veet Voojagig-former graduate student obsessed with the disappearance of all the ballpoint pens he bought over the years.
