In the Earth's darkest hour, unexpected heroes are stirring.

Stirring their coffee, that is.

When aliens invade, four baristas on a camping trip hardly seem the most likely saviours of the world.  But thanks to a hologram with no fashion sense, some newly developed superpowers and an alien with a guilty conscience, they've landed the job anyway. So grab your double-shot of java and your blueberry muffin and strap in - it's going to be a bumpy ride.

Macchiato? Short black? The world saved? Piece of cheesecake.  Hasta barista, baby.

I drink more than a pot a day.  I also like comedic science fiction🤗
Huge fan of HGttG and Guardians of the Galaxy! And I’ll make sure to check out Red Dwarf
Lol I love this. The author's voice, the comical spice, the plot itself; I'm so excited!!!!!
Substitute coffee for tea, then I know exactly what you mean.
That's what I was thinking, forget the Pres, baristas should be praised as the cornerstone of our society. Also, now I REALLY want a caramel macchiato. What? It's a really sweet drink - literally!

I don't think we give enough thanks to the people who make our coffees. Do I hear a national barista day?
