5 minutes before Earth was going to reveal the question to the answer of life, the universe, and everything, it was destroyed into rubble to make room for a hyperspace bypass! Arthur Dent, an ordinary person on this "planet", was lucky and was one of two survivors out of the seven billion people to make it out alive. Stuck with a couple aliens along with another human, he struggles to adjust to his new setting, and more importantly, staying alive. In this sci-fi adventure, our heroes will encounter many exciting troubles, from trying to stay hidden on a Vogon ship to dodging a missile attack on a legendary planet! However, the greatest trouble is about life, the universe, and everything. The answer has been discovered, but nobody understood because they realized that they didn't know what the question was in the first place. Since Earth was actually a computer made to find the question and it was destroyed, Arthur and the other human, Trillian, are the only people in the universe to know the question, even though they don't know that they know! Now some aliens are trying to get ahold of them and some of their friends and finally solve the greatest mystery of all time!
