If you google something like "raumpatrouille Orion subtitles" or "space patrol Orion subtitles" you should be able to find sites where you can get subtitle files with a .srt extension. Using a player like VLC you can get these subtitles to play along with the show.

Alternatively if you put the same query in YouTube I found all the episodes with English subtitles already added. Looks really nice.

I think it'd be much nicer to watch this way than trying to use a separate script.

Everyone "knows" Orioin the way everyone "knows" Trek. May not have watched it, but the images, words snd memes are everywhere.

I remember Eurovision Song Contest a few years ago, and the Greek enntrant was very robotic, in leather, etc, and Terry Wogan barked "Here comes the Borg!" And you know exactly what he meant.

Indeed it would. Thank you very much for the tip.

I'm sure there were people thinking it was a Tennis reference

Re: The German star trek

Raumpatroille is awesome.

It has 7 episodes in total, though a few of them got recut into a theatrical release later I think in addition.

4 of them deal with an alien invasion of an imperialistic race nicknamed "the Frogs" and are pretty serialized.

The 3 remaining episodes are more similar to the Star Trek format.

Hüter des Gesetzes" (Guardians of the Law) deals with amok running worker drones/robots not too dissimilar to the exocomp episode (though these robots are not sentient.

In "Der Kampf um die Sonne" (Battle for the Sun) the Orion discovers a lost Earth colony with a matriachal society after a series of natural catastrophes on Earth. The colony turns out to be responsible by agitating the sun to support themselves with much needed solar energy.

"Die Raumfalle" (The Space Trap) has the crew conduct scientific analysis of space spores while babysitting a science fiction author trying to get inspiration for his next novel but is a bit bored by the ship's current assignment until a hostage incident on a penal colony arises.

Re: The German star trek

I've been wondering if a reboot of "Orion" would be a good way to bring sci-fi (back) to German television, but then, if you strip away the cool 60s designs & music, what's left is really fairly generic space opera stuff. You'd have to introduce a lot of new stuff to make it interesting again.
