The show has been cancelled...but the adventure has only begun.

"Never give up. Never surrender."

Jason Nesmith

Galaxy Quest

Release Date: December 25, 1999

They’re not astronauts…they only played them on TV. For four seasons, from 1979 to 1982, the crew of the NSEA Protector donned their uniforms and set out on thrilling and often dangerous missions in space—then their series was canceled.

Nearly twenty years later, the five stars of the classic sci-fi series Galaxy Quest are still in costume, making appearances at science fiction conventions for legions of faithful fans…but some of those fans have a little too much faith.

The Thermians, a race of aliens from the Klatu Nebula, have mistaken intercepted television transmissions of the show for “historical documents.” Arriving on earth, they whisk “Commander Peter Quincy Taggart” and his crew into space to help them defeat an all-too-real and very 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 Thermians believe them to be.

DreamWorks Pictures presents the science fiction action comedy Galaxy Quest, starring Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Tony Shalhoub, Sam Rockwell, Daryl Mitchell and Enrico Colantoni.

Directed by Dean Parisot, the film is produced by Mark Johnson and Charles Newirth. The screenplay is by David Howard and Robert Gordon, from a story by David Howard. The executive producer is Elizabeth Cantillon, with Suzann Ellis and Sona Gourgouris serving as co-producers.
