Did You Know?


Jonathan Harris was set to reprise his role as Isaac Gampu, the commander of the Space Academy (1977) in this series but had a falling out with the producers. He was replaced by James Doohan playing the role of Commander Canarvin. By the time "Star Command" was renewed for a second season, Doohan was already filming Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979) and was no longer available; role was recast with John Russell playing Commander Stone.

The real scoop on 'Jason of Star Command'
31 August 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This show was a great kids show. Sure it maybe wasn't the most original serial type show, but look at how well the classic movie 'Star Wars' did by copying the standard serial action adventure theme. Buck Rogers in the 25th Century continued the concept and even used names like 'Twiki' for a robot, where JOSC had already used the name WIKKI as a flying mini robot gadget. Like most posts this show was a fun show, Dragos was one of the greatest bad guys in any kids show.
