Storyline

Arthur Dent and Ford Prefect find themselves thrown off the Vogon spaceship into the vacuum of space. Improbably, they are rescued 29 seconds later by the Starship Heart of Gold. This brand new model has just been high-jacked by the President of the Universe, Zaphod Beeblebrox and his girlfriend Trillian. Even more unlikely, it turns out both the hitch hikers and their rescuers have met before. Written by The TV Archaeologist

Goofs

When Zaphod Beeblebrox is at the controls of the Heart of Gold, snowflakes appear in his hair. There was supposed to be a scene in which Trillian creates a snowstorm while Zaphod is sunbathing. That scene was filmed, but was cut from broadcast. This is the only known deleted scene from the series. See more »

Quotes
