The Network broadcasts entertainment to the planets of the Meson system: Sixteen channels worth, and for the citizens of poverty-stricken Torrok, television offers the only escape from a horrible reality. Angela, from Torrok, leaps at the opportunity to travel to the Network, alongside a strange hermit called the Doctor. However, all is not well on the space station: A soap star has killed his wife's lover; the robotic cast of Timeriders are performing random abductions, and a deadly new game show is about to begin transmission.
