Somewhere in the vastness of space exists a small planet called UFO. On it is a two-star hotel run by Quagmire and Melrose, brothers who have been abducted from Earth. Quagmire is the overbearing older brother who manages the hotel while Melrose is his put-upon bellhop. The desk clerk is Cyril, a supercilious avian who brooks no nonsense. Frank and Earl are the air traffic controllers who guide incoming aliens to the planet.
