GREETINGS SYMBIOTIC SEA SLUGS!

The crew of the intergalactic cruise ship The Wonders of the Universe are celebrating their upcoming maiden voyage... but a surprise inspection puts everything in jeopardy.

This episode introduces several new alien characters including the dashing Captain McKraken, his First Mate Lin'zee Starshine, and the gruff head-of-security, Major Canis. Quintin is there, if you're a fan of plain old humans.

(No links in NG description i think)

That was fantastic! More like this please--wait a second. That captain said he'd always be watching him...could we have akward rival sexual tension between them that the human doesn't even want or know how it got there? That would be so amazing! :D

A really good episode and a definite improvement since the pilot in terms of humour. Already longing for more.

And so the story raises its head! This is turning out to be a great series. It's a nice original concept, there's a great amount of polish on the art and animation and the actors do a great job with their characters. And it's funny! I mean, not "oh haw he got hit with a rock" but genuinely clever and funny, with an interesting cast of characters. I'm already a fan of Captain McKraken. Great job all around, everyone!

Wow, humans are treated like crap.

How is it that a goldfish is captain while the only sane person is head of security?

Some excellent animation and fantastic art.
Really feels like the series has grown a ton with just 2 episodes, great characters too. Keep it up :D

Oh wow this is getting really good! Not that it wasn't good before, but there was no hint of plot yet and I'm excited to see that it's well-written and character-focused. Can't wait for the next one!

Very very good, love all the reference to comedy sci fis. Have you guys thought about getting funding to get tis series boradcast? I can dsee this going down well. Im not entirely sure where to get the information for it, but at the biggest animation festival in the world, "Annecy animation festival" in France people get to pitch their ideas to several companies with a chance for up to 260, 000 euros or maybe some more depending on the companies involved. Its worth trying out if you want this series to grow bigger. There may be some information on the Annecy website. [link]

For a moment there I thought this episode wouldn't feature Quintin.
I hope we see more of Lin'zee.

The plot resolved itself a bit too suddenly tough; I thought they were going to look for the opposite of sandwich.
