      They say imitation is the highest form of flattery. Well, Galaxy Quest imitates Star Trek with zest and now Galaxy Quest itself has been imitated on various shows. That’s how well this movie comedy performed.

      This entire movie is like a great big Trek satire, starting with the conventions.. I can’t help but laugh my way through this movie. It’s a spot-on take on a huge fandom, and the


      characters are so perfectly created.

      Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, and Alan Rickman in particular do great jobs in their portrayals of actors who have been stuck with the image of the character they portrayed. This is particularly hard on Rickman’s character. I liken him to Leonard Nimoy and Mr. Spock.

      Weaver loved playing the token blonde in the Galaxy Quest TV series that fuels this movie. She wore a blonde wig ...


      • and said she always wanted to play a ditzy blonde character like this one.

        This movie even has the token ‘red shirt’ and the extra who becomes famous just by being on an episode of the sci-fi show. I’ve seen this happen to actors in fandom, so this is one of my favorite bits of the movie.

        When Galaxy Quest ends up having its fantasy become its reality, the actors have to become

        their characters, calling on past episodes to get them through the adventure. It’s a hoot.

        This is just a really well done, fun, entertaining take on science fiction TV series, on Star Trek, on conventions, on the sometimes over-devotion of fans, and on how a show like this can affect a career. It’s all true, and that’s why Galaxy Quest is a laughable success. Sometimes, truth is the best humor of all.
