Inspired by utterly fictional events, Space Riders: Division Earth is the story of two out-of-shape nobodies who accidentally become Earth’s heroes.
When intergalactic supervillain Orson Ooze escapes from space jail, the Galactic Ministry looks for Earth’s two finest heroes to protect their planet. Unfortunately, an outdated home address leads them to the apartment of Ken and Philip – two very un-heroic guys. The Ministry officials attempt to undo their mistake, but it’s too late. Orson Ooze assumes Ken and Philip are the ones he must defeat to destroy Earth.
After they successfully (and miraculously) defeat Ooze in their first encounter, the Galactic Ministry officially names Ken and Philip Space Riders: Division Earth. The job is unpaid. In their new roles, Ken and Philip fight to foil Ooze’s nefarious schemes, battling moon monsters, portal cats, and dark technologies that pit friend against friend, all while maintaining day jobs and complicated love triangles. Nothing a pair of best friend heroes can’t handle.
