Ziggi is a manic pixie dream girl that went on a bender and never recovered. At least, that's what her bandmates think. Pink-haired with a moonbow on her butt, Ziggi is your average punk barista searching for meaning in suburbia. Too bad her artistic roommate Cyrus turns out to be an alien who, when not smoking weed, is busy manipulating Ziggi’s genome in order to accelerate humanity’s evolutionary conga line. Oh yeah, and he’s been at it for centuries, meddling with human biology so long the Sumerians started a religion after him. At least he makes a mean fettucine alfredo? After a concert goes sour, Ziggi and Cyrus blast off into space in Cyrus’ VW Beetle when Ziggi tries to turn off the radio. Stranded on a spaceship suited for amphibians, not punks, Ziggi learns that her new tenant Cyrus, real name Lahmu, isn’t remotely human. Gone are his good looks, replaced by tentacles and, well, he basically looks like a sewer mutant. To complicate things, Lahmu is the heir to the Milky Way’s dysfunctional overlords, the Anunnaki: shapeshifters who feed off information. In order to sexually mature, Lahmu has to shepherd humanity into his parent’s galactic dictatorship via good old genetic manipulation. Too bad he would rather make trippy artwork or eat pot brownies. A leader Lahmu is not, thus he is stuck in perpetual puberty, with the crown always just out of reach. No wonder he likes to get high. As Lahmu gives Ziggi a tour of his spaceship, she is thrust into a world of intergalactic intrigue where the universe is in turmoil, thanks to Lahmu’s ruthless parents. Opposed to Lahmu’s genetic tinkering is his sister Ishtar who, though against interfering with species’ evolution, will do anything to take the throne. Soon the Brood come, and Ziggi, Lahmu and Ishtar are sold to the highest bidder, who happens to have a personal vendetta against the Anunnaki. Assassination plots are hatched, space pirates abound, and Ziggi discovers her talent for survival. She’s not alone for long, however, as her bandmates soon wind up in space, stranded on an outlaw planet after they got caught in Lahmu’s tractor beam. Forced to battle in interspecies cage matches and entertain their captors, Ziggi and her friends struggle to find a way out of the gladiator ring. Their solution? Form a space band, Anunnaki included, and rock their way to freedom. Music is Ziggi's ultimate salvation, and soon entire galaxies are salivating over her riffs. But will her new supernova stardom be too hot to handle? What about Lahmu’s despotic family? And what will Lahmu do when he runs out of weed? In this spoof of alien conspiracies, all these questions, and more, are answered in this Bowie-inspired mix of Lilith’s Brood and Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
