Space Traipse: Hold My Beer

Now Playing: Day in the Life

 

About

Join the adventures of the HMB Impulsive as it explores the galaxy, proving humans are crazy enough to do anything. Don’t believe me? Hold my beer & watch.

Characters

Captain Jeb Tiberius: He’s a good ol’boy with the best job in the world, a crazy-competent (or is that crazy, competent?) crew, and a ship with wikadas shields. Under his command, there’s nothing the Impulsive can’t do and won’t try.

First Officer Commander Benedict Smythe: Dry of wit and unending in patience, this Englishman has more fun on the ship than he lets on.

Chief Engineer Commander Angus Deary: Miracle worker or mad scientist of engineering? “Can I make the ship do that, Captain? Ach. Hold mah beer.”

Security Chief Lt. Enigo Guiermo Ricardo Montoya Guiterrez LaFuentes: Raised in the gang-divided generation ship, the Hood, even Union Fleet Academy couldn’t take the street out of him.

Helmsman Lt. Tonio Cruz: He’s a pilot and Italian. Do not ask him to fly the ship and talk at the same time.

Ops Officer Ellie Doall: She’s always ready to anticiapate the captain’s commands, work miracles and cover the other officers’ butts. Just ask her.

Science Officer (and ship’s sexy) Loreli: A plant-based sentient life form, she’s not only the most competent and intelligent person on the ship (next to Doall), she’s also dedicated to wearing tight outfits that accentuate every curve of her ridiculously amazing figure, and being completely unattainable to the crew, romantically.

Transporter Chief Dolfrick Dour: By the manipulations of technology he reduced people to their most basic elements and rematerializes them elsewhere. Is it any wonder he’s 23rd Century Goth?

Episode 1: Best Laid Plans of Vegetation and Cybernetic Beings: The fun begins! The HMB Impulsive has a routine diplomatic mission – to assist two warring planets to acheive peeace through marriage by ferrying the prince to his wedding. But when the oriunce falls for the ship’s sexy (yes, that’s her title), and the Cybers attack, it’s far from routine. Improvisation and human hold-my-beer ingenuity save the day and the wedding.

Episode 3: Foot in the Door When Loreli is attached by xenophobic terrorists and left for dead, her body defends itself by taking root in the soil. However, her fight to save her life causes an interplanetary incident that could destroy peace in the area – and cost the lives of her friends on the Impulsive.
