The Krikkit army awaits its freedom from the slo-time envelope that has kept their entire world from being a threat – and even the seemingly peaceful people of Krikkit have fallen victim to a perverse paranoia in their isolation, preparing a doomsday weapon called the Supernova Bomb. Arthur and Ford try to hold the Krikkiters at bay while Trillian tries to negotiate reasonably with them. The Infinite Improbability Drive is recovered and returned to the Heart of Gold, and despite Zaphod offering everyone a means of escape, they’re as surprised as he is when they turn him down and opt to save the universe instead. At the core of Krikkit’s central battle computer, a massive artificial intelligence is counting down to the universal doomsday it has set in motion. And also connected to Krikkit’s main computer is another massive intelligence – a very, very depressed one – throwing a spanner into the works.
