Every kid's dream is probably to be able to have their own space ship and be able to fly in it. Well Tom and Geoff found just that on a school trip to an archaelogical dig one day. It's the life pod of a Yrillian Battle Cruiser, it runs on air and can even go into space!
I loved this show so much. Every day I wished I had a ship like that. It was based on a book of the same name by author, Andrew Norriss. A few things are different in the series to the book and in my opinion these things turned out better in the series.
2 series were made and they sadly ended on a cliffhanger when the boys found out that the battle cruiser the pod came from would be in Earth's orbit and they could go visit it. This never happened however as the series was cancelled, due to (I presume) the actors having their GSCE exams coming up and just being unable to finish it. This saddened me since it was a great series, one of the best kids dramas of that time!
