Doc does a lot of maturing while Romana shares the gift of immortality with a bunch of cornetto hairdos
After inter-stellar, nuclear war with the reptilian Foamasi ravaged the planet Argolis, forced the few remaining survivors below ground, and made them sterile in the process, the Argolins did the only sane thing, and turned their home into a low-rent Center Parcs. As luck would have it, K-9’s just exploded, so Romana suggests they head there to unwind.
Boasting non-gravity squash courts and all the science classes you could want, the titular Leisure Hive in fact plays host to intricate experiments in tachyonics as a last recourse in keeping the Argolin civilisation alive. But what if the experiments are fake? And why are people dying during ‘armless scientific demonstrations? Only Doc and Romana can figure it out.
