What do Number One (from Star Trek), Foo Ar Koo (from the planet of Utapau), Bormado (a dwarf from Middle Earth), and Juichi (a Pokemon killer) all have in common? They’ve all been rejected from earlier drafts by their beloved creators (Gene Roddenberry, George Lucas, J.R. Tolkien, and Satoshi Tajiri, respectively). But don’t worry. There’s a sci-fi convention just down the road, so they’ll have no problem blending in—or will they? A comedy about what sits at the bottom of the cauldron of popular culture—and how what we throw away could contain the greatest stories ever (un)told.
