Plot[edit]

Teenage punk rock fan and high-school dropout Seeth (née Seth) and his older brother, geeky graduate student Kerwin, rescue a stranger from arrest at a bowling alley in their hometown of Albuquerque, New Mexico, only to discover that the cops are killer aliens and that the bowling ball the stranger carries is intelligent. Seeth, Kerwin and the stranger, quickly joined by a Valley girl type named Miranda, soon find themselves on the run, not just on the streets of Earth, but among the stars as well, and in the middle of an intergalactic battle.
