Voiced By: Billy Connolly (series 1), Rob Rackstraw (series 2)

The Scottish engineer of the Paradox who devotes his time in-between maintaining the Paradox's MD-646 engine and battling Dr Agon with building inventions that don't seem to work.

  • Affectionate Nickname: Calls Roger "Rog".
  • Berserk Button: He can get very angry if you call him "Big Nose". The Guardian found this out the hard way.
  • Brave Scot: In the episode "Raiders of the Planet Zark", he managed to kill The Guardian by hitting him with his long tail, causing The Guardian's gun to fly off him and hit a lever which causes a rock to fall on The Guardian and flatten him. That really did take guts.
  • Bungling Inventor: He can maintain the MD-646 engine very well, but his invention skills are as bad as Sir Squeakalot's cooking.
  • Catchphrase: "Maximum power coming right up!"
    • This catchphrase is subverted in the episode "High Moon", where he says "We've already got maximum power!"
  • Companion Cube: He sometimes refers to the MD-646 engine as his "baby".
  • Dreadful Musician: He claims to be good on the bagpipes, but he really isn't.
  • The Engineer: His duty on board the Paradox.

  • Badass Adorable: In the episode "Wearizy", she held Dr Agon at gunpoint with his gun.
  • Big Sister Instinct: Has this towards Sproggle.
  • Cape Wings: She has these.
  • Catchphrase: "Eureka!"
  • The Medic: Has taken care of Captain Thrice twice, once when he was badly injured in an attack by Dr Agon, and the other time when he contracted Galactic fever.

Voiced By: Jimmy Hibbert

The robotic servant of the Paradox, who was formerly the ship's robot on board the Queen Zarla 3.

  • Lethal Chef: To the point where he once broke down after Roger and Isambard refused lunch.
  • Neat Freak: Likes to keep everything as it should be on the Paradox.
  • Pre Ass Kicking One Liner: He gets one in the episode "The Twilight Tower".
    I don't think so. You see, I don't watch television!


Voiced By: David Holt

Voiced By: Jimmy Hibbert

Sproggle's invisible pet Terrian, who was given to him by Twaddle Duff as a birthday present.

    Dr Agon
Voiced By: Jimmy Hibbert

The Paradox crew's main enemy, who wants the universe to become a dark and lonely place by destroying Lavender Castle.

Voiced By: Jimmy Hibbert

Dr Agon's pet falcon, who is often the foil in his plans.

  • Blowing a Raspberry: Does this when he is confronted with a plan that could involve killing him.
  • Catchphrase: "Of course, Master!"
  • Heel–Face Turn: In Series 2, he begins showing signs of this, because he starts to become a bit skeptical about being Dr. Agon's foil. For example, in the episode "Cloud of Chaos", he says "No! No, don't do it!" to Dr Agon when he decides to kill Isambard and Sproggle. He finally does this in the last episode when he joins the Paradox crew after he foils Dr Agon's plan to destroy Lavender Castle.
  • Incredibly Obvious Bug: Has one of these attached to his claws.
