Storyline

One day at an academy, 7 people sneak aboard a mysterious spaceship. The people consist of 5 students, who are Harlan, the athletic leader from earth; Catalina, the Saturnian rainbow-head with a sonic scream; Bova, the negative sour-pus Uranian who can generate electricity; Rosie, the happy Mercurian who radiates heat; and Radu, the Andromedan with super strength and hearing; the other two people are Mrs. T.J. Davenport, the principal at the academy and Commander Seth Goddard, who is their teacher/commander. While on-board they meet an android named Thelma who informs them that they are on a spaceship that is half living and called the Christa. Just when they meet up they become aware that they are approaching a hole that if they get sucked into, they will be stuck in space for 7 years. They eventually do and along their journey they encounter many hardships and enemies that they work together to overcome. They also meet some new people like Suzee (Catalina's imaginary friend from ... Written by Bethany

Trivia

Whenever the ship shakes and the crew is thrown off-balance (a common occurrence in space-based series), Radu is usually shown standing perfectly still. This is a result of the character's superhuman strength and equilibrium. See more »

Quotes

[About Catalina]
Rosie: I keep warning her not to over do her sonic practicing. She'll blow a vocal chord or something.
Harlen Band: yeah, well that's one of the dangers when you're hooked on sonics.

A cult classic...
20 October 2002 | by (Olympia, US) – See all my reviews

Despite bad a few bad choices by the higher-ups at Nickelodeon, the show managed to do well the during couple years it aired, and still maintained a rather large fan following in the years after its cancellation.

Space Cases had diverse characters and an extensive background story. The show itself was co-written by a comic book writer, and it shows in the direction and set designs. If you could ignore the special effects and make up designs that occasionally borderlined into downright cheesiness (Catalina's rainbow wig being the most memorable) it had a cute, campy flavor to it that made it very enjoyable. It's a shame it was canceled so early on, there was a lot of questions left unanswered and development we never got to see.

Overall, I would group "Space Cases" in with other Nick cult-hits of the 1990s like "The Adventures of Pete and Pete" and "Are You Afraid Of the Dark?". You've got pop-culture in the Petes, the horror following for "Are You Afraid..." and we sci-fi geeks got this.
