''[[http://www.legostargalactica.net/ Legostar Galactica]]'' is a science-fiction Franchise/{{Lego}} PhotoComic launched in August 2002 by Dusan M. Jeftinija, Ph.D., about the struggles of Captain Bob Smith, who had recently been transferred to the notorious starship ''[[DysfunctionJunction Muffin]]'' due to an [[NoodleIncident embarrassment to the military]] on his part. Initially dealing with his zany crew, Captain Bob has to go to great lengths to keep the ship together, but then [[FromBadToWorse it goes to hell]] when the [[Franchise/StarWars Sith]] start targeting the ''Muffin'' because of his second-in-command Jasper's ties (and those of the ship doctor, Reines) to the Jedi council.

As the name may imply, the comic parodies science fiction movies, TV shows and novels, especially ''Franchise/StarTrek'', ''Franchise/StarWars'', ''Series/DoctorWho'', ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'' and ''Series/{{Heroes}}''. Its level of parody shifts between AffectionateParody and pure satire (the "Legoes" arc comes to mind).

Legostar Galactica is part of the Brick Comic Network.

* TheKirk: Captain Bob, initially. Lately he's been more of a ButtMonkey.
** KirkSummation: Delivered by Captain Bob to virtually every villain that attacks the ''Muffin'', to varying degrees of success.
* KickTheDog: [[http://www.legostargalactica.net/2006/03/27/03272006/ This comic]] does it literally.
* KirksRock: As you would expect from a ''Star Trek'' parody.
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: During [[http://www.legostargalactica.net/2002/08/28/08282002/ this]] strip, as an explanation for why 4675636B is dropping his famous F-bombs at that moment.
* MadScientist: The Brain, who is incidentally a BrainInAJar. A very insane brain. PlayedForLaughs.

* ThePlan: One of Darth Creepius's has come to fruition, namely by [[spoiler:eliminating the Jedi as a threat and using an ancient lightsaber of great power to [[TheStarscream massacre the Dark Council and create a new order]]]].
* PreAsskickingOneLiner: This [[http://www.legostargalactica.net/2010/10/20/ strip's]] full of 'em/
* PrecisionFStrike: Can go several "episodes" without using any profanity stronger than "crap" before using words like "Fuck" and "Shit" every once in a while for effect.
* RedShirt: Parodied with the character named "Red Shirt", who dies in most of his appearances only to come [[ContractualImmortality back to life]] or be healed. This is attributed both to a family lineage of being incredibly prone to die and the fact he wears a red shirt, which is the cause of "Red Shirt Syndrome", as it's called in-universe. It's powerful enough to bend laser-beams to make them hit him instead of the people it was aimed at.[[labelnote:lampshade]]In one piece of dialogue, he reveals that his uniform used to be white like everyone else's. [[BloodyHilarious Guess why it's red now]].[[/labelnote]]
* RagtagBunchOfMisfits: The crew of the ''Muffin''.
* RougeAnglesOfSatin: Unclear if it is intentional or not, but during the "Legoes" arcs (the "Heroes" parody), a character regularly mentions using "heroine" instead of "heroin".
* RunningGag: Loads -- Marty's nakedness (not so much anymore), Red's deaths, Cunningham's phobias, TAG's embarrassing head colors, Johnny's crotch getting kicked, Jar Jar getting shot...
* ScheduleSlip: Completely and blessedly [[AvertedTrope averted]]. This is a daily comic, but the author has a buffer over 1 year in length set up.
* SingleBiomePlanet: All the planets the crew visits.
* SpacePirates
* StableTimeLoop: The one set up in the Season 9 episode "Prison Break" is revisited in the Season 12 episode "Prison Break Redux", this time from the other Belinda's point of view.
* TakeThat: Numerous, including a one to George Lucas by casting him as a [[CrowningMomentOfFunny member of the Dark Council]].
* TheyKilledKenny: RedShirt usually gets killed whenever he shows up in an episode. It's a RunningGag in the story.
* ThereAreNoTherapists: At first lampshaded and then averted by having high command introduce a ship therapist to deal with the crew's neuroses, but then subverted when the therapist turns out to be [[TheDitz pretty crazy herself]] and not a help to anyone.
* TokenMinority: In this case, a token alien, which is lampshaded by naming him "Token Alien Guy".
* TookALevelInBadass: Reines [[spoiler:when it is revealed that she is a Jedi]] and Jasper [[spoiler:when he supposedly becomes a Sith Lord]], as well as Red Shirt, who starts out a mere RedShirt, and then eventually [[spoiler: helps to defeat the Big Bad, and is the only primary cast member present at the time.]]
* TwistEnding: The Legoes arc, much to the surprise of everyone who had gotten bored of it.
* TwoPlusTortureMakesFive: Complete with [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] ShoutOut to both the trope's original name and to ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration''.
* WeCanRebuildHim: Done [[http://www.legostargalactica.net/2010/08/03/ here]].
* TheWatcher: The omniscient being called ";" ([[TheUnpronounceable his name is unpronounceable in our inferior alphabet]]), or at least he claims to be. He is also an EnergyBeing with a physical avatar.
