In reality, this works out to Strong Bad and the Cheat riding around in a bunch of cardboard boxes taped together, with Strong Mad providing "escape velocity" effects and a CD of goofy sound effects (that cost them the fifteen bucks intended for the mission). At least the CD provides a humorous "body falling down the stairs" sound, and some appropriate laser sound effects when fighting off a "space myoo-tant from Satriani 5" (AKA Homestar Runner with a sweater stuck over his head).

'''Sender:''' Ryan, Raleigh NC

Ryan from North Carolina wants to know if Strong Badia has a space program. Strong Bad boasts that since even the Italians have a space program these days, ''of course'' Strong Badia has one: SBASAF, the Strong Badian Aministration of Some Aluminum Foil.

-->'''Strong Bad:''' The only problem is, we blew our whole budget on this kick-awesome logo and on our orientation film-strip.

We are then treated to the cheesy retro-style film-strip for the Strong Badian Administration of Some Aluminum Foil, "a definitely-for-profit organization, dedicated to the manned taping of aluminum foil to cardboard." Their latest mission involves sending fifteen "Earth dollars" into space, where "according to our vague understanding of the theory of relativity", it will age into a million dollars. Only one man is good enough at video games for a mission of this caliber: "First Lieuteneral Space Captainface" (AKA Strong Bad). With the help of onboard mechanic Harold "Strap" Coopmore (AKA The Cheat) and Flight Engineer Ted Averill (AKA The Tire), Space Captainface will pilot the ''Proud Anselmo'', flagship of SBASAF's 30-vessel fleet, and impress lots of Sixties-looking hot girls.

'''Coach Z:''' Oh, doo time! Even better!
