Synopsis: El Rocio, a commercial spaceship on a flight from New York City to London, was lost when passed through a strange cloud in the ship's orbit around the Earth. It landed on an alternate Earth-type planet, where the inhabitants were roughly twelve times the size of the Spindrift's passengers. Our heroes are the ship's captain (Steve Burton), co-pilot (Dan) and stewardess (Betty), an arrogant engineer (Mark), a jet-setter sexy (Valerie), a young man (Barry) and his dog Chipper; and a mysterious rogue known as Commander Fitzhugh. Together they fight against the totalitarian government of the planet, trying to avoid capture, and attempt to repair the Spindrift so they can go home.
