Pretty much a one-joke movie which pokes fun at the world
of Star Trek. The series, it's fans and the world of conventions.
Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman and others are
former stars of the cult TV show Galaxy Quest, but now ply their trade living off their past glories and charging fans for autographs at conventions. They are then abducted by an alien
species who believe footage of the TV series to actually be factual, and count on the Galaxy Quest cast to save them from an intergalactic war.
Tongue firmly in-cheek, this film may only have one real
joke to run with but it does it very well and with far more invention and intelligence than most other spoofs.
Trekkies may not appreciate that they're the ones being
poked fun at, but everyone else should find this refreshingly enjoyable.
