Jason was an officer of Star Command, which was located on the same asteroid as Space Academy. Star Command's job was to protect the innocent from the bad guys, most notably Jason's archenemy, the one-eyed Dragos. Written by

The issue of "Playboy" featuring guest star Rosanne Katon as Playmate of the Month was published during the filming of the first season, in summer, 1978. Producer Lou Scheimer panicked, worried that CBS would raise hell about a nude centerfold appearing in a Saturday morning children's show (although CBS apparently did not care). To goad Scheimer, stop-motion animators Stephen Czerkas and Jim Aupperle cut a small photo of the nude Katon out of "Playboy" and inserted it into a special effects monster shot. They got the expected panicked reaction from producer Scheimer. See more »

I love cartoons. There, I admit it. Except for one thing. JOSC wasn't a cartoon. It was a spinoff of SA. According to the opening voice
over, Jason, last name unknown, worked out of a secret section of Space Academy. His superiors were Professor E.J. Parsafoot, and Space Academy's last two commanders. His enemy was
Dragos, a brutal dictator, who was the emperor of some unnamed empire. Jason of Star Command aired two years after Star Wars and was in the same vein. It was set some time in the far, distant future, when, exactly, we don't know. Watch both this, and Space Academy, they both do justice to each other.
