There's nothing you can taste, nothing you can see, nothing you can hear, nothing you can feel, nothing you can smell, you do not even know who you are.

>aft
You can see nothing, feel nothing, taste nothing, smell nothing, and are not entirely certain who you are.

You hear the deep and distant hum of a star drive coming from far above. There is an exit to port.

(We were lying about the exit to port.) You emerge from a small doorway...

Entry Bay Number Two
This is an entry bay for the Heart of Gold. A corridor lies aft of here.
There is a sales brochure here.

"This looks like that incredible new Infinite Improbability Drive spaceship, the Heart of Gold!" says Ford, with growing excitement.

"Announcement, announcement. This is Eddie (the shipboard computer). We have just picked up two hitchhikers at an improbability factor of 2 to the 21,914th power to 1 against."

Corridor, Fore End
This is one end of a short corridor that continues aft along the main deck of the Heart of Gold. Doorways lead to fore and port. In addition, a gangway leads upward.

"Come on, let's look for the Bridge." You follow Ford, and eventually come to the...

Bridge
This is the bridge of the Heart of Gold. A gangway leads down, and steam comes from an entrance to port. Next to the control console is Eddie (the shipboard computer).

At the controls, apparently expecting you and Ford, are a man with more than the usual number of heads (the name "Zaphod" is stitched on his shirt) and a dark-haired woman, holding a handbag. Both seem somehow familiar.
There is a molecular hyperwave pincer here.

"Hey, Zaphod, how ya doing?" says Ford. He's cool. "Not bad, Ford. Great to see you," replies Zaphod. He's cooler. You suddenly realise that the woman is Tricia MacMillan ("Call me Trillian"), whom you were trying to pick up at a party in Islington just a few weeks ago, and that Zaphod is the guy she eventually left the party with! Odd.

"Like my spaceship, Ford?" Zaphod asks. "YOUR spaceship?" says Ford, losing his cool for a second. "Yeah, I stole it," Zaphod admits. "I'm gonna use it to find the legendary lost planet of Magrathea. Let's go sit in the sauna while I explain." Zaphod, Ford, and Trillian all head off to port.
