New Webseries “Transolar Galactica” Spoofs Star Trek Movie

The new webseries "Transolar Galactica" sounds like it is related to Battlestar Galactica, but it is actually more of a spoof of the new Star Trek movie, right down to the copious use of lens flares. So far two short episodes have been released, and you can watch them both below.


"Transolar Galactica" Spoofs "Star Trek"

It’s always nice to see a fan production that doesn’t take itself too seriously and has some fun. Such is the case with "Transolar Galactica" which pokes fun at "Star Trek," with some of its own impressive production quality for a fan film.

NOTE: Contains adult language

Episode 1 "Second Star"

Episode 2 "Beam Them Aboard"

This made my day! These are actually a few friends of mine. They’ve done some excellent work over the past few years, including this one. Nice to see they’re getting recognition.

Oh, dear god that’s funny. Things are always a bit more interesting when you at least try to pay attentions to physics.

June 17, 2011 2:54 pm

June 17, 2011 3:08 pm

The captain-guy is really giving his best Zap Brannigan-impersonation. Looks really good!

Is this a family website? The F word was used more than once for anyone who cares.

June 17, 2011 7:29 pm

Yeah, there’s a real Chuck Heston/Zap Brannigan quality to the Captain’s voice.

June 17, 2011 9:11 pm

June 17, 2011 10:52 pm

Pretty funny.

June 18, 2011 2:04 am

Whooooa! A fan-based production where the actors can actually act!
Gee, I wonder how long it took them to write the script?

These have to be the first fan-productions I have ever laughed out loud at, and multiple times at that. And better acting in these shorts than in some of the better known fan-made episodes.

Want more.

June 20, 2011 5:35 am

Funny, but seems very Futurama inspired. The captain does sound more like Zap Brannigan to me

June 21, 2011 7:11 am

This has “Weekly Series” written all over it.

Where is Sci-fi (or, sci-fy for that matter)?

June 21, 2011 7:34 am

That’s not a lens flare, that’s a lens smudge! :)

Great FX with the “touch” screens.

Stop trying to pigeon hole the damned show!! Just enjoy it for what it is. DAMNED FUNNY!!!

June 28, 2011 10:37 pm

That was a blast, look forward to more. The only show where a dead character coming back to life without an explanation -wouldn’t- be out of place!
