“Then shift that ship and quit blocking the light on my beets!”
   — Al Todd on the presence of the USS Brian Cowley over New Springfield

Al Todd was one of the residents of New Springfield.[1]

The Long Utopia

Al and his family were already living in New Springfield when the Abrahamses arrived in 2054.[2][1]

As the day grew shorter, a Navy twain was called to New Springfield.[3] Turned out that a race of creatures from another galaxy, called the silver beetles by Nikos Irwin, was accelerating the rotation of this world to dismantle it.

The Todds were long gone when the planet was finally destroyed.[4]
