NASA had a successful failure. Seven sophisticated Bio-Teks (5 "human-robots" and 2 "pet-robots"), were created for a deep space mission. The money ran out, the spaceship was cancelled and these colourful characters moved out to live in the community and report back their experiences yearly. They set up 5 small businesses in adjacent shops, happily mixing with the neighbours, in Poppycock Place.
Botzi receives a treasure map from a mysterious uncle. Botzi has no money and is helped by his friends. So Noodles volunteers to take all five shopkeeper friends, Botzi, Noodles, Aurora, Banjo and Izaak up in his balloon to sail it on a trip to a South American lost city. The balloon often runs out of fuel placing our heroes in dangerous predicaments. Mexican bandits, dangerous car chases, powerful Elfin war lords, plagues of killer bees, and that’s just the easy part. The “treasure” turns out to be a dangerous instrument of power left by the pharaohs, that can enslave the world. A problem arises when Alby and Fungus, the two Bio-teks who have over-ruled their ethics modules and are growing into very selfish monsters, learn details of this expedition. ….Who will control this instrument?....Is this the makings of another world dictatorship?.....
