Life, the Universe and Everything Wiki

"Captain" Alonzo P. Tucker was originally a homeless man from Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, USA, Earth, in the 19th century. In 1876, he was abducted by a flying saucer and kept in suspended animation for several decades, being wakened only sporadically for the aliens to study him. Therefore, he aged very little between 1876 and 1998.

At some point the aliens seem to have granted his freedom, after which he acquired a small spaceship and started a new career as a rogue interstellar space pirate.

Tucker has a talking robotic parrot named Nick who always stands on his shoulder and provides useful skills such as teleportation, interfering with the workings of other technologies, and sarcasm.
