is a webcomic by Steph Cherrywell
(also known as Steph Sakurai
), who also created Muertitos
and Gorgeous Princess Creamy Beamy
. It parodies
many Science Fiction
tropes while providing Fetish Fuel
and Author Appeal
. You can read it (beware, it's Not Safe for Work
due to some nudity and other Fetish Fuel!) here
The arc-based comic tells the tales of Benjamin Glee
, the captain of a Neapolitan-class ice cream delivery ship
and its crew of misfits
, including her Brainless Beauty
boyfriend Axl, aging and mean-spirited Robot Buddy
Rusty, and science officer Piper, who is actually a puppetmaster parasite
who suffers from a Guilt Complex
over eating her host's brain.
Intragalactic contains the following tropes:
- Affectionate Parody
- Author Appeal: BBWs, women stuffing themselves till they can barely move, and so on...
- Balloon Belly: Scatchi seems to be prone to this.
- Bare Your Midriff: Male example: Axl
- Beware the Nice Ones: When Piper finally gets fed up with Scatchi, she tells the Snaffet to GO TO HER ROOM!
- Big Eater: Scatchi again: After stuffing herself with ice cream, she proceeds to then finish off a Dippin' Dot nearly as big as she is. And so on. Ben also qualifies, especially in the "Ivy" arc.
- Bizarre Alien Biology
- Boldly Coming
- Brainless Beauty: Axl is on the crew only because he's the captain's hot boyfriend. He is technically the navigator, but is far too much of a ditz to actually be allowed anywhere near the ship's controls.
- Camera Spoofing
- Cast of Snowflakes: Applies to pretty much everything Cherrywell/Sakurai's ever done, after the FSR days.
- Cloning Blues: Enstant Ensigns.
- Double Standard: Flipping age-old double standards and gender expectations is a good source of humour.
- Funetik Aksent: Scatchi speaks with a Lzherusskie Funetik Aksent, thanks to her Translator Macrobe.
- Green-Skinned Space Babe: Axl is a Gender Flipped example. He's a pink-skinned space bish.
- Holodeck Malfunction
- Jerk Ass: If Scatchi has any redeeming qualities, she's pretty damn good at hiding them.
- Killer Rabbit: here
- The Kirk: Captain Glee is basically a female Kirk expy.
- Laser Hallway:here
- Meaningful Name: Scatchi is quite bitter and cynical. Captain Glee is a cheerful hedonist. Rusty is, well, old and rusty.
- Mugged for Disguise /Dressing as the Enemy: The enemies they mugged for their uniforms happened to be nude at the time... And it still worked.
- Nipple and Dimed: Inverted in this strip, where the Censor Steam covers the man's nipples, but not the woman's.
- The Nudifier: The Nuditizer.
- Older Than They Look: Scatchi is an adult snaffet, with a buxom figure. She passes for a child basically by virtue of being tiny.
- Petting Zoo People: Scatchi is a ratwoman, Axl is an... Axolotl-boy.
- Puppeteer Parasite: Piper's brainworm. Becoming a corpse puppet doesn't seem to have affected her personality much, apart from a guilt complex and poor body image.
- Red Shirt: Enstant Ensigns are expendable cloned crewmen. Naturally, they wear red.
- Scenery Censor: Played for laughs in a series of strips starting here.
- Serious Business: Delivering ice cream.
- Slap-Slap-Kiss: lampshaded.
- Taken for Granite: Benjamin, towards the end of the "Ivy" arc.
- Translator Microbes: Parodied with the Translator Macrobe. It is as big, and thus as painful, as it sounds.
- Tropes In Space
