About the Podcast
MISSION TO ZYXX is an improvised science fiction podcast following a team of ambassadors as they attempt to establish diplomatic relations with planets in the remote and chaotic ZYXX QUADRANT of the TREMILLION SECTOR. They work for the benevolent and harmonious FEDERATED ALLIANCE, which has recently defeated the evil GALACTIC MONARCHY. The Federated Alliance is definitely less evil. The Alliance's newest recruit is AMBASSADOR PLECK DECKSETTER, a naive, gung-ho farm boy whose crew includes trusty, know-it-all droid C-53, and hulking, omnisexual security officer DAR. They travel aboard the outdated, sentient starship THE BARGAREAN JADE - aka BARGIE - who has as many ex-husbands as stories about her glory days. Their mission is nominally overseen by JUNIOR MISSIONS OPERATIONS MANAGER NERMUT BUNDALOY, a striving, entry-level bureaucrat yearning for respect.
About the Host
Mission to Zyxx is created and performed by six improvisers who met at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York City: Jeremy Bent, Alden Ford, Allie Kokesh, Seth Lind, Winston Noel, and Moujan Zolfaghari. Each episode features a special guest comedian who plays an inhabitant of the Zyxx Quadrant unlucky enough to encounter our crew.
