Transolar Galactica --scifi parody
 
I searched but didn't see this mentioned anywhere. It's a fun set of parodies of Star Trek and sci-fi titled Transolar Galactica. Each segment lampoons a given bit of business all to common to Trek, such as metaphorical navigational destinations, bad accents, beaming moving objects...and lens flare.

1. Second Star [to the right]
2. Beam Them Aboard
3. The Will to Live
4. The Invasion
5. Peace Negotiations
6. Release the COBRAS (dogfights in space)

Thank you so much! I'll be adding that to me 'to be processed' pile. I absolutely did not have those!

Maybe simply the best thing ever. Love it!

These are sooo funny. Looks high quality production but maybe that's all the lens flare hiding the sets.

There are no sets. It's all greenscreen. The backgrounds are Photoshop images, each taking about 1 hour to do.

I love this show. I actually went to a screening of the whole first Season at a theater in Spokane, WA. It was really awesome to see their stuff on the big screen. It's pretty amazing what these guys do with no budget, and the show is hilarious. Here's the rest of the episodes:

7. Edge of the Universe
8. Ominous
9. Slow Day
10. Everything That Ever Mattered

I have no connection to the show except that I'm friends with several of the cast and I just love the show. So I'm posting their Kick Starter link. They are hoping to raise funds to make a Season 2 of the show and make it even better. (It's already insanely awesome). You can pledge as little as a single dollar, and they appreciate every contribution. There are update videos explaining what they intend to do with the money and a few hints as to the direction the show is going. I am hoping some of you can help out and contribute a few bucks.

Thanks!

The mods typically frown on such solicitation on the board.

Yes, the TrekBBS Frequently Asked Questions and Forum Rules has an admonition:

"Soliciting: Do not attempt to solicit other BBS members; posting to sell or endorse a product or web site will not be permitted."

Admittedly, it can be a fine line between "Hey, this is cool. I hope they make more!" and "Hey, this is cool so send them some money so they can make more!"

Try to talk interestingly and respectfully on the forum and try to refrain from becoming a commercial.

Forum Rules are here:

I enjoy their work and wish them success with Season 2. I love the idea that Season 2 will essentially be one movie rather than a series of short comic videos. I hope they have a strong script.

Ok. I didn't think it was soliciting if I am not part of the show or benefit from what I've brought your attention to. I pledged some money but that's the limit of my involvement. I really want to see these guys succeed.

If I told you that you could buy some Star Trek stuff somewhere would that be soliciting?

Also, it seems that with the wording of the rules that the OP could also be found in violation.

Not trying to be a jerk here but I think we're splitting hairs. I can take down my post, though, if it offends.

Well, like I said: "Admittedly, it can be a fine line between 'Hey, this is cool. I hope they make more!' and 'Hey, this is cool so send them some money so they can make more!'

So I'm not exactly sure myself where the fine line is. But for now, we can start with making sure we don't post hypertext links to crowd funding sites like IndieGoGo, Kickstarter, and RocketHub. There's no need for you to take down the post. (The Mods could have that ourselves if it weren't overkill.)
