A show with a plot that was beyond it's time.
4 December 2003 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Space Command is often a joy to watch just for the fun of it. It does often offer an interesting plot line that seems to be before it's time. If you can look beyond the "classic" sfx, you just might find this show entertaining enough to watch. As an added bonus, it's a good place to see James Doohan in one of his very first roles!!
