You've waited impatiently, now it's here: Episode 7: Hairy Situation
May 26th, 2008
We lost a captain: Something happened to Captain Adam in Episode 6: Beauty. We gained a captain: Some guy named Captain Matt has mysteriously taken his place. But there's no time to ponder these imponderables (don't worry, we'll answer these questions in a future episode), because the Captains are in grave danger! A mysterious green gas has engulfed the ship with unexpected consequences. Plus, two mysteriously sexy visitors suddenly appear. Are they dangerous, are they aliens, do they want to mate with the Captains? I know two Captains who are hoping the answer to the last question is "yes, please".
This episode features sexy space ladies Stefanie Estes and Amy McAndrew, and the compositions of musical powerhouse Keith Burgun of Dinosaur Lightning. Subscribe via iTunes, download it, or watch it below. have at it.

SpaceMonkeyMafia, we salute you!
September 7th, 2006
LiveJournal bon vivant SpaceMonkeyMafia has created a series of user icons to share with fellow LiveJournal journalers. For inspiration she used some of her favorite films and TV series, including Superman Returns, Men In Black, Back to the Future, Hackers, Battlestar Galactica, and a little video podcast called Captains In Space (!!).
SpaceMonkeyMafia, we are honored that you enjoy our effort enough to quote us and will work hard to continue providing you and our millions of viewers with new and exciting episodes. Captain Fed wrote you a personal email thanking you, but did not get a response. No doubt your spam filter could not believe that Captain Fed would take the time to write to one in the teeming mass of fans and regarded it as a fake.
By the way...Episode 5: Proms Away, should be out soon.
Captains Update: Why the long absence
September 7th, 2006
Dear Honorary Otto-5 Crew Members:
Captain Fed and Captain Adam have been away for a while. A long while. Too long. Why so long? Well, I had some very difficult personal issues to deal with. And, no, as many of you wrote to suggest, it was not because Captain Adam kept getting into my bunk late at night to snuggle, though that was upsetting in its own right. Let's just say that with my personal tragedy behind me, I can get back to what I do every day: trying to motivate Captain Adam to stop hitting on girls long enough to shoot another episode.
Episode 4: Future Shock, Arrives (From the Future!)
A fan of Captains In Space, Dan McCoy, created this motivational-style poster of Frankie with the Captains. We're not sure what we are supposed to be motivated to do, but we like it anyway. Did I mention that Dan is a writer for Captains and will be guest starring in an upcoming episode? I'm sure I did. Build your own with the Motivator.

iTunes sez "I love 'Captains in Space'!"
March 20th, 2006
...Is what the Captains would report if iTunes were a person and actually said anything about loving "Captains In Space". What we can report, without danger of libel or accusations of not making any sense is that our little video podcast is now officially searchable on iTunes. Searching for "captains" will return our listing as the first under podcasts. If you haven't already subscribed to "Captains" via iTunes, we ask that you do. It will raise our profile on the site and help us get on the "New and Notable" podcast list, an honor Captain Adam insists we richly deserve.

"Captains in Space" in post-production!
February 16th, 2006
The cast and crew of Captains braved a snowy weekend to shoot the first 4 episodes of the series. Now comes the hard part of editing all that footage. We're still aiming for an early March release of the first episode. Check back (often) to see if it's come out. 'Cause if you miss it, we'll never show it again. "Really?" you ask. "No, not really" we answer. Here's a production still taken by Sarah Sloboda from the first day of shooting.
"Captains in Space" in pre-production!
February 6th, 2006
Captains has been in preproduction for a couple months now. Adam built the cockpit control panel prop, Dan, Devon and I wrote numerous episodes, the first of which we are shooting on the 11th and 12th. We also cast the part of Frankie (Vedette Lim), and the part of Future Adam in "Future Shock" (Andrea Rosen). With some luck, we'll have Captains episode one, "In the mood...for fun" out by early March.
