The only surviving fragment of a Dutch science fiction series for children from the mid-sixties (that never was). Part homage to classic British television scifi, part satire of Dutch drama, part meditation on lost media and irretrievable memories and part explosion-rich spaceship adventure. Join a heroic space captain who, together with his amphibian lieutenant and robot pal, fight to retrieve the Dutch president, who has been kidnapped by evil Venusians!
