This short story is about Zaphod Beeblebrox' life before the Hitch-Hiker's guide. It tells a little about why Zaphod later played a part in the destruction of the Earth. He is working as a salvage contractor when he discovers that a dangerous cargo, which was due to be dropped into a black hole in fact made it to the planet Earth.
