Galaxy Quest is, of course the story of the cast members of a long-cancelled sci-fi TV series (very obviously parodying the original Star Trek) who accidentally gets transported onto a spaceship to help a real alien race and become reluctant heroes. Lest you worry the show won’t have the same charm as the original, rest assured that Robert Gordon, the film’s original writer, will be writing this adaptation, creating it along with Breaking Bad‘s Mark Johnson and director Dean Parisot through Gran Via Productions.
Hopefully, this show will be even better than the show in the film. Or not, and that will totally be its appeal! Whatever happens, today is an awesome day for sci-fi comedy fans everywhere. Paramount, we salute you.
What do you make of the news?
