A WebOriginal sci-fi comedy series following the [[TooDumbToLive intrepid]] crew of the ''SS Transolar''. Season 1 was recorded on an [[NoBudget extremely low budget]] (described by the creators as "can't even afford the shoestring" and "a budget of what we find in the couch") almost entirely in front of a [[ChromaKey green screen]]. Season 2 promises actual locations, thanks to a $30,000 Kickstarter.
