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

Cannot describe...
7 April 2004 | by HeartMongerSee all my reviews

This is a weird show that still has yet to show any real depth. But then again I do not think it is supposed to. It is about a group of Aliens in space who endure the tragedies and ups and downs of space life. Gina Gershon is funny as Six, an alien created android. Really weird show has a few good laughs an episode but so far is not enough to hold one's attention enough to keep the interest. Yet the ratings are still high, and it does a good job being a follow up to the fantastic and hilarious Shannen Doherty show "Scare Tactics" This show is not really supposed to be taken seriously but oh well. I guess you get what you pay for.
