Overview
The Entire Saga of Crusher Joe and His Team of Intergalactic Troubleshooters.

THE MOVIE
The galaxy is a strange and dangerous place, and there are times when even the United Sapce Force can't help. That's where the Crushers come in - skilled troubleshooters who deal with any problem, large or small, for a fee (large only)! And no better Crusher than Crusher Joe! But when Joe and his team are hire to med-evac a cryogenically frozen heiress to the planet Miccola, the hieress gets stolen during a hyperspace jump! Before they know it, the team gets accused of space piracy by the United Space Force, and suspended by the Crusher HQ! In order to clear their names, they'll have to travel to the most lawless planet in the galaxy and take on the notorious "Big Murphy," a pirate so nasty that his idea of a good time is blowing up entire planets!

THE ICE PRISON
After an industrial "accident" changes the orbit of a cometary core being used as a prison for political prisoners, the team is hired to alter its trajectory before it hits the planer Ooro. What they don't know is that the corrupt dictator who hired them would much prefer it if all the prisoners, and the heroic Crushers, died during the rescue attempt!

THE ULTIMATE WEAPON: ASH
When a courier guarding a doomsday weapon crash lands on an abandoned planet, the team is hired to resue her before she can be captured by rebel military officers. Unfortunately, the planet is infested with Cloakers, biotechonologically augmented robots with but one goal in "life," to find human beings, clamp onto them and explode!
