At the beginning of 2016, Nico Andresen and the Kulturlokschuppen association opened up the opportunity to implement the SciFi web series PentaQuad.
It is an old area of the railway. In the middle between old locomotives and wagons, a version of the future was created that no man had ever imagined before.
It is the year 2060. The Earth, which has political and social chaos behind it, longs for new adventures. The private space agency CPLE is happy to help and sends a series of space ships into space, all of which fail on their missions. But no matter, after all, it’s all about the profit that the respective television transmission generates.
The crew of the Flying Discman wants more. With the launch of the hyperstream propulsion system developed by Professor Higgs, they finally want to establish the era of interstellar space travel. But when they reach their destination – the engine may only be ignited at the outer edge of the solar system – the intelligent beasts realize that this is not so easy.

In the 50s and 60s, producers of SciFi movies and series had to come up with all sorts of ideas to bring space travel, foreign planets and dimensions to the screen with the mostly tight budgets.
Production designers of series such as “Space Ship Enterprise” (1966-1969) used everything they could find in cheap material for costumes and scenery. A beekeeper’s suit had to be used as a space suit, and Styrofoam, in which typewriters had previously been packed, was converted into futuristic forms. The German series Raumpatrioulle Orion (1966) made the taps installed in the steering console famous. Flying spaceships were depicted with miniature models.
In times of Computer Generated Image these old techniques seem sympathetic and authentic. It’s time to remember this handmade character. And not with trash, but with well-made comedy.
