Aboard his starship, the Bistromath, Slartibartfast is filling Arthur and Ford in on the dark history of the planet Krikkit, the planet whose wars not only inspired the game of cricket, but also gave rise to the white robots who have now ransacked Lord’s Cricket Ground and kidnapped Marvin. These same robots have also boarded the Heart Of Gold, zapped Zaphod, and stolen the Heart of Gold’s heart itself – the core of the Infinite Improbability Drive. The Krikkit robots are trying to retrieve the various components of the key that will unlock their planet – and its unstoppable army. Slartibartfast sets the Bistromath on a course that he hopes will allow him to beat the robots to one of the next components. But when he, Ford and Arthur attempt to teleport to their destination, someone snatches Arthur away.
