Synopsis
Valent and his crew have been hedge-hopping the galaxy, searching various planets for much needed raw materials back on Earth, specifically uranium. After two years, the crew is ready to get back home after this mission. When they land, a group of beautiful women suddenly approach the crew along with their men who are hideous to look at. Many of the crew marry the women, but then learn too late that they are actually the planet's insect life.
