A traveling-show troupe of aliens are playing cards when a vessel comes out of warp space and nearly crashes into their ship before crashing on planet Anika. The only survivor is a baby human girl, Corona. They decide to look after her, at least until somebody shows up to claim her. In order to equip themselves to play the part of the "normal" human family and friends the baby will need, they research information from the crashed ship's data banks and embark on one of the longest-running shows of their entire career. But they identify more and more with their roles, and when a ship comes for Corona five years later, they have become her family and friends.
Yoshito Asari's 1985 manga in Sho-nen Captain was a revamp of the popular Swiss Family Robinson castaway theme that also inspired the U.S. comic Space Family Robinson, later known as Lost in Space. Mysteriously, the Nimitz-class U.S. aircraft carrier Carl Vinson visited Japan in the 1980s, though it seems likely that the use of its name is either coincidence or one of those meaningless puns that the Japanese find so entertaining (see Sorcerer Hunters). As Chairman of the House Naval Affairs Committee from 1931 to 1947, the original Carl Vinson could be said to be personally responsible for the support and maintenance of the U.S. Navy during WWII, which hardly seems likely to have endeared him to the Japanese.
