When Captain Frederick Anderson awakens aboard the Methuselah a hundred years after the mission was due to land, he scarcely has time to play with his rock-hard erection before he realizes that something has gone terribly, horribly wrong.

Captain Chris Hansen, a renowned xenobiologist and astronaut, is on a one-man mission to a newly discovered extrasolar planet believed to be capable of harboring life. What he finds there is beyond even his wildest imagination.
