NASA and the crew of the Space Shuttle Zeus III are prepared to take you along for the comedic ride as they venture forth into the cosmos.
Strap yourself in and try not to succumb to the G-forces of laughter as you’re introduced to the Commander of the Zeus III, Scott Derickson (Nicholas S. Williams), and his crew. Samantha McKinley, a brilliant scientist (Alina Phelan) and Red Jackson, an astronaut on his final mission (Trevor Olsen) ready to spend the rest of his long life with his wife Minnie (Lynn Odell). NASA maintains constant contact once they leave the Earth’s atmosphere as the Mission Control Team made up of Benny & Joanna (Travis Moscinski & Wendi West), the feuding couple, Neil Bradley (Justin Okin), the genius with a screw loose, & Rusty (Kjai Block), the intern turned employee, keep a dutiful eye on their progress to make sure that absolutely nothing whatsoever could possibly have the slightest chance of going horribly and drastically wrong. Especially when Susan (Nicole G. Scipione), the reporter for Elle Magazine, begins her documentation of the event. But only the head of NASA, Chuck Merrick (David Wilcox) knows the truth about the super top secret mission involving…SORRY! I CAN’T SAY MUCH MORE! THE RUSSIANS (Brad Light & Rebecca Sigl-Light) ARE COMING! JUST KNOW THAT SPACE SHUTTLES WILL BE LAUNCHED, FIGHTS WILL BE HAD, & POTATOES WILL BE THROWN!
If you forget everything else, always remember this:
In Space, No One Can Hear You Laugh.
