Computer, what topic is episode 54 on?
Episode 54 is on Galaxy Quest!
Pedal to the metal, and get ready for some vertical Thermian handclaps for the crew of the NSEA Protector with returning special guest Crewman #6..... aka Andy from Geek Salad! You may remember him from Episode 23 on Mystery Men. He's the plucky comic relief in this episode, and unlike Guy Fleegman's Crewman #6 on the show, he lives to the end of episode 54!
Galaxy Quest's historical documents have been off-air for 18 years but the illustrious crew are still making appearances at conventions near you!
We have Jason Nesmith, as the handsome, brave Commander Peter Quincy Taggart; Gwen (just how does she fit her boobs into her suit, though?) DeMarco as Lt. Tawny Madison; By Grabthar's Hammer, it's Alexander Dane as Dr. Lazarus; Tommy Webber, who's grown up so fast, as Lt. Laredo and Fred Kwan as the sardonic, sarcastic Tech Sgt Chen.
It might have been off-air, but the fans still love the historical documents. Especially the Thermian people, who take cosplay to a whole new level and recreate the ship, from scratch, and even include an authentic "bad guy". These really are fans from another world!
And if there's any movie that celebrates fan culture and appreciates fandom, it's Galaxy Quest.
Never Give Up! Never Surrender!
I would love to hear your thoughts on Galaxy Quest!
SPECIAL THANKS.... to the out-of-this-world brilliant podcaster and all-round excellent human being, Andy for joining me to chat about Galaxy Quest. Give him a hand, he's (not) British.
You can find his podcast Geek Salad on all good podcast apps, their website https://geeksalad.podbean.com/ and make sure you check out Episode 197 - We Can Remember It For You Wholesale (ft. me!), and the other 196 quality episodes on movies, video games, music, tv.... basically a veritable smorgasbord of great content!
