Delta X is the secretary to the Platform Manager at an intergalactic power station sometime in the distant future. She frequently receives surprise gifts from secret admirers. One exotic gift arrives, causes commotion and takes her and her co-workers on a wild goose chase throughout the power plant at the same time Phil Santos, an efficiency expert, is walking the premises on a surprise inspection. The results of that inspection determine if the rig is going to be decommissioned, shipping its workers off to an asteroid mining colony.
It is a race to the finish as the motley crew of office workers, a scientist and an ape man (a primate specimen from the plant's science lab) hurry to save the platform, and their jobs, from failing the inspection. Little do they realize that the gift that caused all the commotion ends up resolving it. Or does it?
