Buzz Lightyear, a Star Command space ranger, and Featheringhamstan, their recruit, explore the habitable planet T’Kani Prime with the help of Buzz\’s commanding officer and best friend, Alisha Hawthorne.

They learn that the planet is home to hostile lifeforms and are forced to retreat to their exploration ship. During the retreat, Buzz causes damage to the ship, necessitating an evacuation by the crew so that repairs may be made and the voyage can resume.

One year later, the crew has built a fledgling colony and the infrastructure needed to carry out repairs.

Buzz offers to test the essential part of the repairs, the hyperspace fuel. However, following a four-minute test, he discovers that, as a result of time dilation brought on by traveling at relativistic speeds, four years have elapsed on T\’Kani Prime.

Buzz continues to test the hyperspace fuel while being introduced to the robotic cat Sox. On T\’Kani Prime, four more years pass after each test, adding up to a total of almost 62 years.

The colony increases throughout this time, and Alisha and her wife Kiko raise a son, who grows up, receives a promotion, and marries. Alisha later passes away from old age, and Sox changes the fuel\’s composition to enable faster-than-light travel.
