Storyline

Tripping the Rift is a CGI science fiction comedy television series. The universe is modeled largely after the Star Trek universe, with references to 'warp drive' and 'transporter' beam technology, occasional time travel, the Federation and the Vulcans. The series also includes elements borrowed from other sources such as Star Wars, 2001: A Space Odyssey and Battlestar Galactica. The general setting is that known space is politically divided between two superpowers: the Confederation (led by Humans, and a parody of the Federation from Star Trek) and the Dark Clown Empire (a parody of the Galactic Empire from Star Wars). The Dark Clown Empire is a totalitarian, tyrannical police state, led by the evil Darph Bobo. In contrast, the Confederation is technically a democratic and free society, but in practice, is dominated by mega-corporations and bloated bureaucracies. Ultimately, both superpowers end up exploiting and restricting their inhabitants, albeit in different ways. For example, ... Written by Anonymous

Crazy Credits

The opening credits feature items that resemble some of Sci-Fi's biggest legends: Whip's radio-controlled ship is the original Starship Enterprise from Star Trek (1966); Gus uses a vacuum that resembles R2-D2 from Star Wars (1977); the back of T'nuk's chair resembles the monolith from 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968).

Laughter from deep space far far away
13 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have watched quite a lot of Science Fiction movies during the past 60 years, enjoyed the funny black and white Flash Gordon and similar films of old, and I am a great fan of the first Galactica stuff.

I love my (translated into German) Star Wars movies that I recorded many beers and years ago.

Especially precious is it whenever somebody dares to make fun of the mostly way too serious Science Fiction movies and series. My congratulations go out to the masters of black (or should I say: colorful?) humor in this series.

Some episodes just found me grinning, but I have also laughed so hard sometimes - tears were running down my cheeks.

Compared to the gazillions of other series that TV stations torture us with on a daily basis this here is heartwarming because it doesn't spare a stereotype that all y'all know from the Big Buck Hollywood creations and makes a nice slapstick of it.

We are not on this planet or in this universe to just sit in the corner and whine. There's a lot of catastrophes happening around us, I know, and thus it might be better to enjoy life as far as possible, and to smile a bit while we are watching TV.

Oh, I almost forgot this: the people who give their voices to the hilarious persons/creatures sure are having fun. You can hear it. May the force be with all of the folks involved for many more episodes.
