For four years, the courageous crew of the NSEA Protector set off on thrilling and often dangerous missions in space ... and then their series was cancelled. Now, twenty years later, aliens under attack have mistaken the Galaxy Quest television transmissions for "historical documents" and beamed up the crew of has-been actors to save the universe. With no script, no director and no clue, the actors must turn in the performances of their lives.

Pity they didn't spoof the next generation, successive diminishing returns franchises, autocratic producer & "dip too many times into the well" corporation.

Just watched this again, in Memory of Alan Rickman. This film is a great cult classic for anyone who loves Startrek or any other Sci-Fi TV show from the 60, 70 or 80 or anyone who has gone to a Sci-Fi convention. The premise of the films is what if a cast of an Startrek like TV show was actually given a star ship to command? Overall a great movie with a lot of good acting from Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver and of course Allen Rickman.

RIP Allen Rickman...

One of the all-time great movies ever! Can' enthuse enough about this, especially that ultra-cute ending. Hilarious, for SF and non-SF fans alike! [The level of this comedy can only be achieved when every actor is a craftsman or woman of the highest caliber!]

This is one of my favorite Sci-Fi movies. Not so much a spoof as it is an homage to the entire genre and to Stark Trek in particular. They hit all the right marks- the too serious Thespian, the beautiful but under utilized actress, and the star who always manages to find a way to get his shirt off again. Fun for the whole family.

This may be the best sci-fi spoof ever, with outstanding performances from Alan Rickman, Tim Allen, and Sigourney Weaver. The cast of a defunct, but cult favorite, sci-fi TV series (sound familiar?) has been reduced to comic convention appearances and store openings, until the arrival of real space aliens challenges them to live up to their characters' heroic traits.

Through a series of amusing and surreal circumstances, an aging group of sci-fi actors is offered the opportunity to bring their characters into the real world of outer space, complete with their own spaceship and aliens. They are used to looking plausible and saying the lines that are written for them, but they will have to adapt to real out-of-this-world circumstances in order to save their lives and the lives of their alien friends. Fighting without your shirt is a not just a cliche, it's a requirement. Some knowledge of sci-fi genre films and TV is helpful for a full understanding of the humour and sarcasm.

Quellek (shot, dying): "...It has been my greatest honor to serve with you. I have been blessed, sir. I... I... I..." Sir Alexander Dane: "Don't speak, Quellek." Quellek: "...You'll forgive my impertinence, sir, but even though we have never before met, I always considered you -- as a father to me." Sir Alexander Dane: "Quellek... by Grabthar's hammer... by the Suns of Warvan... you shall be... avenged." (Quellek smiles, dies. Dane, enraged, runs at one of Sarris' goons)
