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).

Aliens, robots, and attractive cyborgs, what geek could ask for more?
8 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show is brilliant. That much is clear, but the reason why it is brilliant is it is fresh and original. The show possess a innuendo-filled, somewhat morbid, and seldom disappointing quality which will have anyone, science-fiction geek or not, rolling on their sides with laughter and choked up with bouts of mirth. It is funny because it is a pleasant relief from all the previous science fiction shows which appear to be stuffy and impressive in a dulled-out sort of way. But with "Tripping the Rift", a viewer will see nothing but ensuing hilarity involving effeminate robots, narcissistic (and quite ugly) aliens, lazy lizard-type aliens, and much more. With this show being peppered with Star Wars and Star Trek references, it is certainly not to be taken as just another dull and lazily impressive science fiction show.
