Movie Info & Cast

Synopsis

For four years, the courageous crew of the NSEA Protector donned their uniforms and set out on thrilling and often dangerous missions in space - then their series was cancelled. Twenty years later, the five stars of the classic '70s series "Galaxy Quest" are still in costume, making appearances at sci-fi conventions for legions of die-hard fans - but some of those fans are a little more far out than the actors could have ever imagined. A group of aliens who have mistaken intercepted television transmissions for "historical documents" arrive at a convention and whisk "Commander Peter Quincy Taggart" and his crew into space to help them in their all-too-real war against a deadly adversary. With no script, no director and no clue about real space travel, the actors have to turn in the performances of their lives to become the heroes the aliens believe them to be.

Trivia

  • The evil warlord Sarris was named for film critic Andrew Sarris, who once trashed producer Mark Johnson's The Natural (1984). Sarris' metal eye-patch mimics that worn by General Chang (Christopher Plummer) in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991).

Goofs

  • When our heroes are in the engineering room, unable to raise the command deck on the intercom, they hear the doors to the room open, and they all look up in surprise. Next we see Sarris and crew entering through the open door. When the camera cuts back to our crew, they are now walking toward the door, apparently unaware that anything is happening, and they are surprised all over again at the appearance of Sarris.

More than one joke or one idea. It's a thoroughly satisfying comedy --and a respectable space adventure, as well.

An affectionate, often clever and unflaggingly funny satire.

The movie's humor works best when the illogic of the TV show gets in the way.
