Tripping the Rift is SciFi Channel's new comedy. Using CGI-animation and grotesque adult humour, Tripping the Rift is something new and exciting for the whole family. Providing that family is old enough to at least buy beer.
Chode: The purple, yet frighteningly Kirkish, captain of the Jupiter 42. Has serious sexual issues. Has a penchant for petty theft, cheating and pornography. A true blue professional captain. Also part owner and captain of said vessel.
Darph Bobo: The manic, stupid and utterly hateful Vader-spoof. Has the same homicidal tendencies as his Sith alter-ego, albeit more random in his delivery of punishment. Chode's arch-nemesis.
Gus: Gus functions s both the ship's engineer and Chode's personal whipping boy. He has somewhat queer manners, which the other characters seem to find offensive. Bigots, all of them.
Six: Six of One was liberated from the Federation by Chode. Somehow the debt held by Six has turned towards "love" for Chode. Six is not wholly disgusted with Chode's disgusting habits. Love has flourished on worse foundations... Has received programming beyond just being a love slave, and is the Jupiter 42's scientific officer.
T'nuk: The ugly feminist. Wow. That was redundant. Actually she is not the perfect feminist, as she has an overactive libido and loves the rooster (What's another word for rooster?). Not a positive thing in a four-legged alien. Also the co-owner of the Jupiter 42 and thus the prime rival of Chode.
Whip: Chode's dumb nephew. Half-witted is too positive, as Whip is a hormonally disturbed teen. Welcome to puberty and space.
Bob: The ship's onboard computer. Neurotic. Not exactly good for anything except for whining. Oh. And drinking. Do not travel in space with a neurotic drunkard as your navigator/AI. Bad idea.… Expand
