The Wikkit Gate is the artifact designed to unlock the time-slowing field surrounding the planet Krikkit. It was once lost, so the planet Krikkit had killer robots search the galaxy for a pillar of plastic, a pillar of wood, a pillar of steel, a golden bail, and a silver bail to make a new gate and unlock the field. They believed that once the field would be unlocked, the Krikkit inhabitants wanted to proceed to destroy the universe.

The Gate consisted of:

  • A Steel Pillar of Strength and Power (Marvin's leg, but only after it had been replaced by a scrap metal merchant)
  • A Wooden Pillar of Nature and Spirituality (the reconstituted ashes of the cricket stump that was burnt in Melbourne, Australia to signify "the death of English cricket")
  • A Perspex (Plexiglas) Pillar of Science and Reason (Argabuthon Sceptre of Justice[1])
  • A Golden Bail of Prosperity (The Heart of Gold's heart of gold — the Infinite Improbability Drive that powers the starship)
  • A Silver Bail of Peace (the Rory Award For The Most Gratuitous Use Of The Word "F***" In A Serious Screenplay[2])

Notes and referencesEdit

  1. It was renamed the Plastic Pillar in the U.S. version of the books
  2. This was changed to "Belgium" in the U.S. version
