The year is 3842 - the human empire has conquered almost all the known universe, all alien life across the galaxy has been enslaved, mass rebellion plagues every sector of space and, worst of all, the price of fuel is still a bloody rip off!
Our hero, Captain Leonidas Emmerich Fitzpatrick, has suffered a grave and embarrassing defeat and, despite his long and honourable career, is reassigned to the now ridiculed star ship (and it's equally ridiculous crew) the 'S.S Leviculus Pardus' in the most remote, most sordid sector of the universe.
Now this once respected military man must deal with a doped-up party animal for a first officer, a criminally insane chief of security, a malfunctioning robotic counsellor, a pair of drunken yobs in engineering and an ex-striper for a doctor, all aboard a vessel that might as well be held together with dried bug mucus and thumbtacks compared to every other ship out there. Join this insipid crew, and many more equally undesirable undesirables, as they struggle to survive in a very dangerous, very fast, very sticky universe. Boldly going where no one really gives a crap.
"Bardus Adventum" (meaning 'stupid adventure' in Latin) takes place in a universe where nothing is what it seems; behind every government there's a secret organization, behind every planet's surface there's an illegal weapons facility, and behind every community service broadcast there's a flatulent, amorphous blob thing with an inexplicable French accent.
