Space Traipse: Hold My Beer

Now Playing: Trouble in Filedise

 

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 Guillermo 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 anticipate 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 reduces people to their most basic elements and rematerializes them elsewhere. Is it any wonder he’s 23rd Century Goth?

 

Episodes

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 achieve peace through marriage by ferrying the prince to his wedding. But when the prince 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 2: The Polarity Panic: The HMB Impulsive responds to a distress signal. Can they save an alien ship they know nothing about? By Keptar, hold their beers and watch!

Episode 3: Foot in the Door When Loreli is attacked 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.

Episode 4: Day in the Life: It’s “filler” time! (As in “Filler Episode”) We follow Janbot, a janitorial robot on its rounds and get a glimpse of the private lives of the crew.

Episode Five: Lone Star: The Impulsive finds the lost deep space generation ship, Lone Star. However, it’s in the midst of a civil war as half the crew tries to stop the other from the genocide of an alien species. But is it genocide, or evolution?

Episode Six: The No-Brainer: The ship is refitted and ready for its next adventure – SCIENCE! Let’s throw a couple of warp drives into a star and see what happens. (Inspired by the Tumblr post that sparked the whole series.)

Episode Seven: Trouble in Filedise: The Impulsive goes to the source of the replicator issue, the planet Filedise. Get ready for everyone’s favorite – outsmart-the-computer episode, and be ready when Loreli and the doctor… oops! Spoilers!
