Storyline Edit. The general setting is that known space is politically divided between two superpowers: the Confederation led by Humans, and a parody of the Federation from Star Trek and the Dark Clown Empire a parody of the Galactic Empire from Star Wars. In contrast, the Confederation is technically a democratic and free society, but in practice, is dominated by mega-corporations and bloated bureaucracies.

Ultimately, both superpowers end up exploiting and restricting their inhabitants, albeit in different ways. For example, the value placed on life is so commercialized in the Confederation that clearly sentient robots and androids are reduced to essentially slave-status. The Dark Clown Empire practices actual slavery, and while the Confederation does not, most of its inhabitants including the Human ones are openly described as living in wage slavery.
The only place that anyone can truly be free is in the border region between the two superpowers, which is directly controlled by neither.

Aliens, robots, and attractive cyborgs, what geek could ask for more? This show is brilliant.
That much is clear, but the reason why it is brilliant is it is fresh and original. The show possess a innuendo-filled, somewhat morbid, and seldom disappointing quality which will have anyone, science-fiction geek or not, rolling on their sides with laughter and choked up with bouts of mirth. It is funny because it is a pleasant relief from all the science fiction shows which appear to be stuffy and impressive in a dulled-out sort of way. But with "Tripping the Rift", a viewer will see nothing but ensuing hilarity involving effeminate robots, narcissistic and quite ugly aliens, lazy lizard-type aliens, and much more.
With this show being peppered with Star Wars and Star Trek references, it is certainly not to be taken as just another dull and lazily impressive science fiction show.
