User Reviews

Bizarre, intense and funny. The Anti-Space opera.
30 December 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Without giving too much away, this is a great little series that was cut too short.

In the vast ocean of blandness of (sci-fi and) regular television, this is easily the most enjoyable show I've ever watched.

As counter to the stuffy, sterile and stale space operas of the Star Trek series as this could be; its a refreshingly imaginative take on the wandering starship plot.

This show is either hit or miss with most people. The reason for which is likely that main writers are German and Canadian.... and a good chunk of the humour is regional/cultural in flavour and taste. If you love absurd, bizarre scenarios and a touch of dark humour you'll love this show.

It's a mix of the original Star Trek series, with a seriously dark and foreboding air to it; with hysterical and upsetting plots and characters that keep you from feeling secure.

No Disney endings or Rambo hero's to save the day. Just people being people... and a hint of something deeper.
