Go To

Marty: Welcome aboard, Captain Smith, I'm Lieutenant Jasper, I'll be your XO.
Bob: Um... is there any particular reason you're... well... naked?

Legostar Galactica is a science-fiction LEGO Photo Comic 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 Muffin due to an 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 it goes to hell when the 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 Star Trek, Star Wars, Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica and Heroes. Its level of parody shifts between Affectionate Parody and pure satire (the "Legoes" arc comes to mind).

Legostar Galactica is part of the Brick Comic Network.

Legostar Galactica provides examples of:

  • Stable Time Loop: 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.
  • Take That!: Numerous, including a one to George Lucas by casting him as a member of the Dark Council.
  • They Killed Kenny: Red Shirt usually gets killed whenever he shows up in an episode. It's a Running Gag in the story.
  • There Are No Therapists: 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 pretty crazy herself and not a help to anyone.
  • Token Minority: In this case, a token alien, which is lampshaded by naming him "Token Alien Guy".
  • Took a Level in Badass: Reines when it is revealed that she is a Jedi and Jasper when he supposedly becomes a Sith Lord, as well as Red Shirt, who starts out a mere Red Shirt, and then eventually helps to defeat the Big Bad, and is the only primary cast member present at the time.
  • Twist Ending: The Legoes arc, much to the surprise of everyone who had gotten bored of it.
  • We Can Rebuild Him: Done here.
  • The Watcher: The omniscient being called ";" (his name is unpronounceable in our inferior alphabet), or at least he claims to be. He is also an Energy Being with a physical avatar.
