Cast & Credits

Synopsis

Comedy about the stars of a cult science fiction television show who, eighteen years after the show was cancelled, are visited at a fan club convention by aliens who believe they are real intergalactic crusaders able to defend their extraterrestrial world against villainous marauders.

Science fiction comedy. `Galaxy Quest' is a science fiction series that inspires a cult following although it was cancelled twenty years ago. Jason Nesmith, the star, is an egomaniac who revels in the attention he receives at fan club conventions - which is about the only attention he receives anyway as his career has hit the skids. The other cast members are in a similar position - until a group of odd characters turns up at one convention who are real aliens - and, believing the cast members to be actual intergalactic crusaders, enlist them in a battle in space against villainous marauders.
