Scientific genius Professor Stuart Langham and his equally bright daughter Kerry, are sponsored by electronics giant Computek to develop what could possibly be mankind's biggest ever scientific breakthrough. Unfortunately their timing and progress overrun the budget set by Computek and the sponsorship is withdrawn. This is Stuart Langhams life's work, he's got his daughter fully involved, he can't stop now. So they fund the project themselves and continue their research in their own workshop at home. It is here they succeed. What they do not know is that they are being watched, by a spy from Computek, to inform the company if the Langham's achieve their goal. Their aim is to steal it and claim it as their own. The Langham's rather strange housekeeper Doris is also watching them she has direct communication with an even stranger local rock band called 'The Aliens' who are arguably the weirdest band in the country but in actual fact they are far weirder than they appear to be. 'The Aliens' need to contact Stuart and Kerry Langham fast because what they have discovered is certainly mankind's biggest breakthrough but if not used properly it is capable of destroying the world and much of our solar system... So begins the adventure of a life time with considerable interstellar help from 'The Aliens' true identities including a journey to another star system. The Professor and his daughter think they have developed the control of anti-gravity, but what they have actually discovered is 'THE SECRET OF THE UNIVERSE'. Their lives will never be the same again.
