Galactic Smugglers

Galactic Smugglers is the comedy science fiction brickfilm series that we started a few years back and there are now 8 episodes and two holiday specials.  We intend to keep producing this series for a while longer and production of Galactic Smugglers 9 has already begun (slowly). 

Galactic Smugglers is set the 41st century and mankind has colonized just small piece of the Orion Arm of the Milky Way Galaxy.  Most of this territory is controlled by the galactic empire know as the Greater Orion Galactic Governmental Leadership Executive. For 1500 years they have kept the peace by force.  The Empire, otherwise know as G.O.G.G.L.E., completely control its citizens lives.  Movies, television, most music, and other arts have been banned from use completely.  Some non-fiction works are allowed.  Possession and use of some art carries the death penalty, but there are a few free star systems known as Free Republics, where some art and media are tolerated, accepted, and even encouraged.  The empire enforces its power in any system it can connect with via fold gates.   Some brave souls smuggle for a living.  They smuggle movies, music, guns, food, and anything else that can get them money on the market.  These brave souls are the Galactic Smugglers.

Instant travel between star systems is accomplished using "fold gates".   There are both permanent and temporary (emergency) fold gates.  Direct travel between stars can take from decades to centuries.  There is no such thing as faster than light speed travel or hyperspace.  The Galactic Empire does not have the command codes for Free Republic fold gates.
