In his ship, the Bean-with-Bacon Megarocket, Keen dispenses galactic justice with a platinum hand! But today, he's just being taking a touristy trip around the galaxy after traveling for some time, keen suddenly notices something. His bean-with beacon megarocket is currently using a battery that's on its last breath.

Luckily, an inhabited planet is just around the corner where he can shop for a replacement. Commander keen lands on one of the space stations orbiting the planet Arachos, where he plans to buy a new battery. He has brought some bartering currency with him: a few lollipos, two soda cans and a teddy bear
