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.

Trivia

The teddy bear that Radu finds in Space Cases: Who Goes Where (1996) is the very same one that was used in an episode of Babylon 5 (1994) written by Space Cases creator Peter David. It's a running gag between David and Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski. David's wife gave the bear to JMS, who hates "cute" things. In Babylon 5: There All the Honor Lies (1995), the character of Sheridan tosses it out of an airlock into space (for the same reason). Peter David took revenge in defense of his wife's honor. When Radu brings in the bear, Rosie says, "What kind of dope would toss a perfectly good Earth bear into space?" Later, we find out that the bear was left by an evil race called the "Straczyn." JMS has reportedly sworn vengeance. See more »

Quotes

Elmira: Harlan Band doesn't hate you, Radu. He's afraid of you.
Radu: Afraid?
Elmira: Yes. Every time he looks at you, he's afraid that everything he knows is wrong. And so are you, every time you look at me.

Still my favorite TV show.
26 December 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This sci-fi epic caught my attention from the first episode, and has never left my memory since. The mix of comedy, drama and science was the perfect combination for a great show! Despite the fact it aired on Nickelodeon -known as a kids network - Space Cases has many little references, jokes and themes throughout that fly right over the heads of its target audience. The distinct personalities of each cadet make them unique...I was also one disappointed by the loss of Catalina at the end of the first season. (With that Saturnian personality and powers, she's the best of the five IMO.) The episodes went downhill incredibly from Suzee's appearance onward. Thanks to the internet I have found pictures and sounds to remind me of this great work, but sadly I haven't seen an actual episode in five years. Sure, I could find more ''flaws'' now than I could back then at age 13, but there is no chance I would like it any less; if this is your type of show you cannot grow out of it. If you can get a hold of some Space Cases episodes, I completely recommend it to you and am sorry I can't see it anymore. Zabagabe, zabagabe!!
