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 too, if you're a fan of plain old humans.

We'll be throwing up a podcast about this episode's production soon, check our Newgrounds journal for a link!

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


HOT DAMN,king of cool,but still kind of retarded.

Toonwerks responds:

Obviously it was a flash submission.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Absolutely loved it.

Another excellent episode. I look forward eagerly to more Wonders of the Universe. Really quite hilarious, and I especially enjoyed the multiple references to the Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy in this one (namely the theme tune being sung in the shower, the towel, and of course the title of the episode).

STFU v.9000 is also rather hilarious.

Toonwerks responds:

Motley didn't think anyone would get the reference either! So he's pleasantly surprised. :)


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Well done cartoon

Toonwerks responds:

The voice actors actually did a really good job, we want to do another quick podcast to give them a nod but we haven't gotten around it just yet.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

"Once there was a ship
That went on a trip,
But he didn't bring his jacket
So he didn't have enough pockets
And they live happily ever after
Most brandom and amzing story EVAH!!

Toonwerks responds:

It was the mild nudity that knocked it over into the M rating :P


Rated 5 / 5 stars

about time ;3

and what the crap was that little hidden video. lol seriously. good work!

Toonwerks responds:

That was a line from one of the original scripts we had for this episode that had actually been voiced. Lin-zee invented that story as the forged inspection report. When we got to that point, we realized that it didn't make much sense, and so Chris Boe made it into a bonus video cause we still thought it was funny. Fortunately now it makes even LESS sense!
