Tagline Do you catch my drift?!
A fast-paced and stunt-filled show for gearheads, Catch My Drift! is a series focused on testing both mundane and magical
gear for a variety of vehicles and starships in excitingly exotic locations and worlds throughout the depths of space. In pushing each vehicle or starship they ride to the absolute limit, the show’s cast performs a number of extreme stunts and challenges to see what each featured vehicle can do. Things often don’t go as planned for the so-called Drifters, with injuries and mechanical mishaps frequently punctuating episodes. The series began as a series of segments on the Spaz streaming service, where it earned donations and paying subscribers. Eventually Icewire picked the crew up, rebranded them as Catch My Drift!, and the show exploded in popularity. Now the series runs both on Icewire and Yousphere and is rapidly becoming a hot property.
The series features hostess Capt Krysa Teakshanks, a beloved ysoki icon from Hyperspace Station, and her crew, including android engineer Falak 13, elven pilot and solarion Illiana, aasimar empath Melisande, vesk xenoarcheologist Jarimana, and skittermander gladiator Morg. The crew’s beloved cat, Opal, makes frequent appearances on the show and can be found on nearly all of their series’s merchandise. A typical episode features a segment where Falak 13 and Melisande dissect the vehicle and comments on its construction, a segment where Jarimana lectures on the vehicle’s history, and a segment where Illiana and Morg partake in demonstrations of the vehicle’s capabilities, most often in the form of races and death-defying stunts. Kyrsa acts as narrator for every segment in addition to starting and finishing each episode while also serving as an audience proxy for asking transitory questions. In addition to their on-screen antics, the Drifters are well known explorers and adventurers and numerous gossips have tried to turn the cast’s off-screen adventures into scandal, but the crew is entirely unfazed by the barrage of YouSphere videos that spring into existence following every mission, such as a clothing-optional party that the crew infiltrated or a barhopping odyssey that took the team from Hyperspace Station all the way to the Galactic Ring of Whimsy World. No matter how egregious, every escapade is spun into promotional material for the next episode that serves only to excite fans even more for the Drifter’s next big stunt. Recently rumors have begun to spread that Catch My Drift! would receive a Sphereflix contract for a season of 12 full-length episodes, much to fans’ delight.
Hours spent watching Catch My Drift! have granted you a familiarity with starship tech from the bleeding edge of current innovation. Whenever you attempt a skill check to use a crew action aboard a starship or a skill check to pilot a vehicle, you can add a +2 enhancement bonus to your check. This ability must be used before the result of the skill check is revealed, but you can use it after your skill check has been rolled. Once you’ve used this ability, you cannot use it again until you’ve regained Stamina Points by resting for 10 minutes and spending 1 Resolve Point.
