A short time ago, in a galaxy not so far away, Captain J. T. Smirk and the Starship Secondprize beam aboard Luke Nightrider, a Jet Knight, who seeks to rescue his sister from the clutches of the Evil Empire and its leader, Barf Vapor. Join Smirk, Dr. Spot, R-2 Tattoo, Chewing Tobacco, and a host of others in this classic confrontation of good versus evil, right versus wrong, and father versus son!
