On the intergalactic courier ship The Beanstalk, a mechanic named Jack has come to possess a strange navigation unit. When the mysterious unit activates itself and brings The Beanstalk into uncharted deep space, Jack defies his crewmates by investigating the massive alien craft they find there.
Jack, a young mechanic, lives in a beat-up old spaceship called The Beanstalk. The captain is a human woman called “Mom,” and two aliens round out the crew: Zeke, who runs security, and Stilts, who handles their business relations. After a robot malfunctions on the ship, Mom orders Jack to sell it at a space station bazaar. Instead of selling it though, Jack gets sidetracked by a smooth-talking alien who persuades Jack to give him the robot in exchange for a strange navigation unit. When he gets back, Mom is angry that Jack didn’t sell the robot and tosses the NAV unit aside, which mysteriously activates itself. As they’re sleeping, the ship somehow finds itself in deep space in front of a massive alien ship. Eager to prove that the NAV unit wasn’t a waste, Jack boards the ship and discovers a giant sleeping alien as well as a bunch of large golden eggs. Excited that they could sell one, Jack picks up an egg, which triggers an alarm, waking the alien. Jack races back to his ship, making it to safety just in time. Later, the crew celebrates their score while, unbeknownst to them, the egg begins to crack.
