HYPERDRIVE is set in the year 2151, when Space Force -- the British conglomerate on all things galactic -- has deployed ambassadorial teams to the far reaches of the Milky Way to establish and maintain friendly relations with alien life forms. The crew of the Camden Lock has been charged with acting as diplomats and protecting British interests throughout the galaxy, and is led by Commander Henderson (Nick Frost), whose idealism is often tried by a menagerie of extraterrestrials, as well as his own mish-mash crew. They also conduct various transactions in the name of their homeland, traveling to other planets to create an intergalactic business presence in England and peddle British wares to their alien acquaintances. Reporting to Henderson are first officer York (Kevin Eldon), a certifiable psychopath who specializes in combat; perky diplomatic officer Teal (Miranda Hart), who sees stars whenever her boss is around; techie guru Jeffers (Dan Antopolski); and anxiety-ridden navigator Vine (Stephen Evans). The Camden Lock is piloted by a Sandstrom (Petra Massey), an experimental prototype whose imperfections are kept a secret to help maintain the aura of British scientific supremacy throughout the galaxy.
