Space Patrol Orion


What sounds like a fairy tale today, may be tomorrow's reality. Here's a fairy tale from the day after tomorrow. There are no more nations. Only humanity and its colonies in space. Distant stars have been settled. The ocean beds are inhabited. Space ships cross the galaxy at unimaginable speeds. One such ship is the Orion. A small link in a great chain of defense against threats from space. Let's join Orion and her crew on patrol at the edges of infinity...

How to watch the DVDs with subtitles

The best way (but a bit complicated and time-consuming to set up) is to use some method that involves de-multiplexing the DVDs and burning new DVDs with proper subtitles added. Please see this guide for one way to do that.

If you're in a hurry, one very simple approach is to use the Media Player Classic software. It will let you play a DVD with subtitles from an external file. The disadvantage is that if you use the subtitle files below "as is", subtitles will typically appear one second too early. You can compensate for that by loading your subtitle file into Subtitle Workshop, adding a one second delay (Edit / Timings / Set delay) to all subtitles, and then saving as a new file.
