Mechakara to [=JewWario=], Chick to Lupa, Mechakara again to Zodd, and a deleted scene of Todd to Joe. Lampshaded by Reloaded!Critic, in his [[HeteronormativeCrusader usual]] [[SelectiveSquick charming]] [[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday way]].

Unfortunately for those who can actually read Aurebesh, it's all jibberish.

** It's got shades of PoweredByAForsakenChild and SadisticChoice when you factor in that his freedom means not just the deaths but the total erasure of every other reviewer in his 'Verse. The freedom he could have had is literally tantalizing - there not for him to take, but for a moment to imagine he could have taken, which makes his ultimate sacrifice (and even his later return) all the more heart-wrenching. In some ways it feels like the polar opposite of the ending to ''OneOverZero'': Not the heart-warming peace of "they are free to imagine the very best for you," but an explicit denial of this possibility (barring some serious fanfiction retcons), and the possible implication that the only possible way for ''any'' of them to escape the story is for all of them to escape at once.

'''''To Boldly Flee''''' is the fourth anniversary video event of the Web site Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses. Continuing from where ''WebVideo/SuburbanKnights'' left off, one year later, WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic is depressed over the loss of Ma-Ti. A galactic threat is brewing, beginning with the appearance of a gigantic "[[OurWormholesAreDifferent Plot Hole]]" in space and the vendetta of a bitter [[Film/BattlefieldEarth Turrell]][[note]]The original name is Terl, but here he appears to prefer this spelling[[/note]]. Put under house arrest by the government for [[DigitalPiracyIsEvil breaking copyright laws with his reviews]], Critic discovers the wormhole has some connection to mysterious messages being sent by Ma-Ti, whose body may have died -- but the "character" is still in the ether somewhere! He responds by converting his house into a spaceship (since, hey, it's not breaking the law [[LoopholeAbuse if he technically doesn't leave the house]]) and blasting off to find him, defeat Turrell and his allies, prove his innocence so he and his friends can keep their jobs, and stop the hole from disrupting space and time. Hilarity, science-fiction film parodies, jabs at Hollywood politics, and truly dramatic moments ensue.
