Galaxy Quest 30-Second Summary

Galaxy Quest is a cancelled fictional TV show where space is the final frontier. One day, at one of their conventions filled with the usual space geeks, Jason Nesmith, the fictional commander of the NSEA Protector, is greeted by Thermians from the Klaatu Nebula. They need the commander’s help to negotiate peace with Sarris, a lizard-warrior hellbent on destroying the Thermians. Thinking this is just another acting gig, Jason agrees to “help.”

The Thermians take Jason to a fully functional replica of his TV ship; as smart as they are, they are unable to separate fact from fiction, and boy are they fucked! Jason has the alien crew fire at Sarris’ ship and thinking his acting job is done, requests to go home. Once home, he realizes that not only wasn’t it an acting job, but the aliens were real, and he’s now royally pissed off Sarris.

Jason gets the rest of his TV crew to help him fight Sarris, and to keep his hands off the mysterious Omega 13 that was introduced in the show’s last episode, and also which the Thermians replicated. Alexander Dane is his ship’s alien science officer, Fred Kwan the chief engineer, Gwen DeMarco is the computer officer, and Tommy Webber the ship’s now grown up child pilot. Throw in Guy Fleegman who played an unnamed security officer that got killed off in an episode, and you have no help for the Thermians!

Along the way, the space actors somehow manage to fit into their roles, and fight off Sarris and his henchmen; saving the Thermians, but they needed a lot of help from those space geeks at the convention.
