Cracked.com has introduced Starship Icarus, a new four-part online science fiction satire series.
The series aims to “seek out strange new life and adventure” courtesy of the “low-level support crew who maintain” the Starship Icarus.
Five lower-deck “flunkies” are the focus of the series, and they maintain the computers and other systems that keep the USS Icarus running, a task made more difficult as the starship tends to “spew raw sewage onto certain decks” when it gets nervous.
The four episodes are: The Ridiculous Reality of Life in Space, The Fatal Flaw in the Star Trek Universe, Why Star Trek Technology Would Destroy Us, and Why Work Will Still Suck in Space.
The other three episodes can be found here.
