The Life and Times of Preston Sonoda is a Sihian comedy franchise created by Lachlan McLaren and Trahaearn Priddy, which primarily consists of a television sitcom. The premise of the series follows the low-ranking Space Trucker pilot Preston Sonoda, who awakens after being in suspended animation for three million years to find he is the last surviving crew member on board the Trucking spacecraft STV Honour is Absolute, other than Saffron Flint, a Sapphrian Devotee of the Starlit Path who is rapidly developing a connection to the Bleed, and Camweithio of the Sidhe, who is rapidly malfunctioning having been active far longer than any member of the Sidhe was designed to be.

The main cast includes Kami Aron as Saffron, Sidi Barina as Preston, Quicksilver of the Sidhe as Camweithio, and Enid Gaynor as the ship's computer, Oberon.

To date, the show has aired six series, in addition to four feature-length specials and several novels. According to rumors, two pilot episodes of an Ikarosian spin-off of the show were produced but never aired.

Originally produced by the Fellowship of Authors and Journalists, The Life and Times of Preston Sonoda has recently been picked up by Pixel Fog.

Season 1

In this season we were introduced to our main cast including Joe and Jane. They engaged in a series of events that led to conflict between the characters and various other elements, concluding in a cliffhanger climax.

Season 2

In this season we flashed back ten years to when the main characters were children until this tired trope resolved itself and we caught up with the cliffhanger climax of season one. It was revealed that it was all a dream and that the real show would begin in season three (which never came).
