''[[http://galaxioncomics.com Galaxion]]'' is a science fiction comic book and webcomic series written and drawn by Tara Tallan. The story follows the crew of an interstellar ship, the ''Galaxion'', as they test a new experimental hyperdrive engine.

As the story starts, the more military [[SpaceNavy Interplanetary Patrol]] (IP) has required the ''Galaxion'' from the civilian Terran Space Administration ([=TerSA=]) for said experiment. After the hyperspace jump, the ''Galaxion'' is apparently still in the same place. But nobody is responding to their calls. The crew starts to investigate what happened.

''[[CoolStarship Galaxion]]'', an unique starship belonging to
the crew of an interstellar ship, Terran Space Administration ([=TerSA=]), a civilian space survey organisation, is being loaned to the ''Galaxion'', as they test a new experimental hyperdrive engine.

As the story starts, the more military
[[SpaceNavy Interplanetary Patrol]] (IP) has required for the ''Galaxion'' from purposes of testing an experimental new drive. The two previous tests, on ''Pathfinder'' and ''[[MeaningfulName Hiawatha]]'' have ended... explosively, so the civilian Terran Space Administration ([=TerSA=]) for said experiment. After the hyperspace jump, the ''Galaxion'' is apparently still tensions are high. Especially that [[TheBrigadier Scavina Nelson]], whose [[GadgeteerGenius engineer]] husband died in the same place. previous attempt, is now on board, personally overseeing the proceedings. But nobody is responding to their calls. The crew starts to investigate what happened. the problems with the new drive have been straightened out, so the engineers say.

* ActualPacifist: [=TerSA=] (but not IP!) rule one - no weapons on alien planets. Under no circumstances.
* AdmiringTheAbomination: Zan has a tendency.



* AlienInvasion: Type II

to:

* AfterTheEnd: Planet designated 76432-69-GM, by means of a NuclearWar and an AlienInvasion on top of it.
* AlienInvasion: Type IIOf the Orehu planet, or 76432-69-GM, the Infiltration flavour, because the invaders are tiny {{Puppeteer Parasite}}s.



* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Zan appears to be this.
* CoolStarship: The ''Galaxion'' itself. Although not a StarshipLuxurious, the design prefers human comfort to cold efficiency.
* GrandTheftMe: [[spoiler:Supposedly what the Miesti did to the Rautani.]]
* PaintingTheMedium: The Orehu's language is done in a florid, almost unreadable script.

* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: [[AscendedFanboy Ascended Fangirl]]: Aria, of the renowned geologist Jax Augustus.
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Zan, unless he's building something. Although, he has been known to end up building something else than intended.
* BetterAsFriends: Fusella and Darvin. She tries to set him up with her BestFriend Aria.
* BodySnatcher: [[spoiler: Rautani are the Orehu snatched by Miesti]].
* BrainwashResidue: Seems the [[PuppeteerParasite Miesti]] leave some [[{{Telepathy}} telepathic ability]], though we don't yet know its extent.
* TheBrigadier: [[IronLady Scavina Nelson]], an actual Brigadier General and much less of a stiff Jerkass than she initially appears.
* TheBridge: Played very, very straight, except for the [[AvertedTrope aversion]] of NoSeatBelts (you can see them being fastened).
* BunnyEarsLawyer:
Zan appears is an utter genius in all matters technical and very much forgetful in all matters interpersonal (it's {{Adorkable}}). [[TheCharmer Darvin]] tends to be this.

* TheCaptain: Fusella Miertier. Although she has quite a [[TheMcCoy sanguine nature]], she's very competent and generally liked as a leader and as a person.
* CasualInterstellarTravel: Yes and no - the amount of space the experimental drive covered in a blink of an eye would take about ''seven months'' to travel normally.
* TheCharmer: Darvin, lovable, charming and aware of it. But he's a decent guy, thank goodness.
* ChasedByAngryNatives: With rakes.
* CoolStarship: The ''Galaxion'' itself. Although used to be a [[StarshipLuxurious private yacht]] of an "insanely wealthy" (Fusella's words!) eccentric. That's why it's nautilus-shaped, spacious and wonderfully decorative.
* CorruptedData: ''Hiawatha'' logs are encrypted with obsolete IP keys, which [=TerSA=] does
not a StarshipLuxurious, have. So they can't read them.
* CunningLinguist: Vessa Khavis can speak many languages, including Myradi which is supposedly insanely difficult.

* EverythingSensor: Yes, they have lifeforms sensor. Used for maximum Drama.
* FlawedPrototype: The third prototype of the experimental drive actually seems to work without exploding. [[spoiler: Once.

* PaintingTheMedium: FirstContact: What all the members of [=TerSA=] Survey Teams dream of doing (as opposed to their usual surveying and geology work). [[spoiler: What Jax Augustus actually did]]. Thoroughly botched by our protagonists, although later Aria and Zan decide it had no way of going well in the first place.

* InSeriesNickname: Mal[[spoiler:odorous]], the chief scientist of the research team. How he got it? NoodleIncident.
* InsistentTerminology: Justified, because this isn't Earth. It's 76432-69-GM, which looks identical, except for the AfterTheEnd, and they didn't land on New Zealand, but on a SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute of an island.
* InterdimensionalTravelDevice: The new drive, turns out, jumps (briefly) through another dimension.
* ItSeemedTrivial: Pretty butterfly... [[spoiler: turns out a PuppeteerParasite InsectoidAlien seeking hosts]].
* JurisdictionFriction: IP versus [=TerSA=]. Constantly.
* LanguageBarrier: English and Orehu are [[AvertedTrope ''not'']] [[AliensSpeakingEnglish mutually understandable]]. [[http://galaxioncomics.com/1-comic/book-3/chapter-8/title-219/ But Vessa tries]].
* {{Mad Scientist}}s: The research team consists of people lovably crazy ForScience, although Zan has moments of being even ''[[UpToEleven crazier]]'' and more single-minded.

* MasterRace: Miesti, with humans/humanoids as SlaveRace. [[spoiler: But humanoids are not their usual symbiotes - they've crashed as well and are making do with what they found]].
* TheMatchmaker: Fusella. She thinks those rules against fraternization are stupid, anyway.
* MildlyMilitary: [=TerSA=], so mildly that [[TheCaptain Fusella]] plays matchmaker to her crew. Don't think they're any less competent for that, though.
* TheMedic: Patty is one for the Survey Team. She diagnoses her own broken forearm, using the proper Latin name.
* MyGreatestFailure: For Scavina, the ''Hiawatha'' disaster.

* ObstructiveBureaucrat: The [[SpaceNavy IP]] is infamous for it, to Fusella's eternal annoyance.
* OldFriend: [[AmicableExes Darvin]] and [[TheBabyOfTheBunch Zan]] to Fusella.
* OmnidisciplinaryScientist: Zan Wilder has a wide range of expertise, which may have something to do with both his [[CuriousAsAMonkey curiosity]] and tendency to get fired.
* PaintingTheMedium: The Orehu's language is done in a florid, almost unreadable script. Also, there's some use of SpeechBubbles in that way (Fusella's sprout flowers when she smells hot [[TrademarkFavouriteFood chocolate]]).
* PuppeteerParasite: [[InsectoidAliens Miesti]].

* TheSnarkKnight: Vessa. As we learn from a side story, Fusella is one of the very few commanders she's willing to work under.
* TheSocialExpert: Darvin's job - he's an executive officer. And [[TheCharmer great at it]].
