A science fiction sitcom which follows the crew of a British spaceship as they go about their day to day lives promoting Britain in the 22nd century.

Commander Henderson is at the helm of HMS Camden Lock, an optimistic but deluded man who always thinks his orders are "open to interpretation". His right hand man is First Officer York, a brilliant scientist and polymath but also a borderline sociopath who thinks he should be in command.
