  AboutFilm.Com - Galaxy Quest (1999)
Galaxy Quest begins at a "Galaxy Quest" convention, where the cast is introduced to the adoring fans by Guy Fleegman (Sam Rockwell).
It seems that these aliens, called Thermians, have picked up broadcasts of "Galaxy Quest" and, not firmly grasping of the concept of make-believe, they have assumed that these are "historical records." In fact, the peace-loving Thermians are so impressed with "Galaxy Quest" that they have modeled their entire society on the show.
The internal logic of Galaxy Quest breaks down soon after the introduction of the premise, but it doesn't matter, because inconsistencies and sketchy logic, often a problem on Trek, are part of the fun.

 SPLICEDwire | "Galaxy Quest" review (1999) (via CobWeb/3.1 planetlab2.cs.virginia.edu)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
"Galaxy Quest" was birthed from a ripe comedy premise: The leaders of a tyrannized race of pacifist aliens watching TV signals from Earth mistake the cast of a cult status science fiction show for real space adventurers and spirit them away to help save their planet.
But somewhere along the way "Galaxy Quest" forgets that it's meant to be goofing on the serio-comic sincerity of "Star Trek" and its ilk, and lets the comedy stall out in favor of its own superficial earnestness.
Six hilariously-scripted parts, but they run out of laugh material long before the movie ends, and "Galaxy Quest" must then limp to the closing credits supported by its actual plot, which is, by design, stupider than anything "Star Trek" ever devised.

 Filmtracks: Galaxy Quest (David Newman)
Galaxy Quest: (David Newman) As promising as the film itself, David Newman's mock Trek score functions extremely well on its own.
With an abundance of heroic action and a charming demeanor, Galaxy Quest is a creative and independent form of Star Trek spin-off score.
He utilizes a sort of blaster beam device (which, for those of you who are not familiar with the term, is the bass-heavy grinding tone often employed by Goldsmith in the first Trek film score), as well as that tingling electronic sense of mystery that was also used by Goldsmith in his early Trek efforts.

The Thermians are counting on it, having studied the "historical documents" of the Galaxy Quest TV show, and their hero worship (not to mention their taste for Monte Cristo sandwiches) is ultimately proven worthy, with the help of some Galaxy geeks on planet Earth.
And while Galaxy Quest serves up great special effects and impressive Stan Winston creatures, director Dean Parisot (Home Fries) is never condescending, lending warm acceptance to this gentle send-up of sci-fi TV and the phenomenon of fandom.
In the film a group of washed up actors from the TV series `Galaxy Quest' are asked to help a group of aliens led by Mathesar (Colantoni) defend their people against the evil Sarris (Sachs).

Galaxy Quest is almost as certainly the second-finest such recent film, but come to think of it, I can't really recall a third, offhand, so I suppose this might constitute a less-than-ringing endorsement.
The movie opens with the cast of Galaxy Quest, a long-canceled trekalike show that last aired in 1982, backstage at a convention preparing to entertain a gathering of hardcore fans.
The only answer is that the Thermians think of themselves as being somehow "in space" (bear in mind they identified with Galaxy Quest before they built their replica of the Protector).

 Galaxy Quest
The opening scene at the Galaxy Quest convention will probably frighten those who didn't see Trekkies; those who did will laugh heartily at how uncannily accurate the milieu is (the movie doesn't even try to satirize Trekkies, who are often so ludicrous as to be beyond satire).
Galaxy Quest is directed with a light, fast pace by Dean Parisot (Home Fries and the Oscar-winning short The Appointments of Dennis Jennings), who effectively delivers all the special-effects power and thrills of a real Star Trek movie, only without all the gassy moralizing and shallow moral conundrums.
For those wary of Galaxy Quest because Tim Allen is the star, I can assure you this is probably the first good movie he's appeared in.
