A robot named Jens on the ship thinks they two teens have comes to save the Outer Dimension from an evil overlord.

In a 2008 interview with the magazine "Spacesuits and Sixguns", Matthew Ewald stated that "Galidor: Defenders of the Outer Dimension" has "always meant something very special to me," and added that he had "gone to great lengths to try to get it going again, up to and including offering to fund it myself." On a show's fan-site forum at http://galidor.proboards.com/index.cgi), he replied on March 13, 2009: "First of all, I'd like to say what a true and great honor, as well as unfathomable joy, it is for me to find that a forum like this exists for 'Galidor: Defenders of the Outer Dimension.' 'Galidor' was and IS one of the greatest dreams of my life. It is every wish worth wishing, every dream worth dreaming, and it is, for me, the reason I've never been afraid to 'chase my stars.' For over seven years (since the series ended) I have fought to give 'Galidor,' it's characters, and the stories and tales told which I love so completely, a 'rebirth' or 'finality.' For over seven years I have done everything in my power to bring 'Galidor' back to life... to end it the right and true way. And although I have been unsuccessful (so far) in receiving the permission to do so, well... my promise to not only myself, but anyone who has ever lost themselves in the Quest and adventure 'Galidor' was... my promise to you all is: I'm not finished yet. Regardless of what the future holds, I want to thank Katrina and 'EVERYONE' here in the forum (from the bottom of my heart) for keeping 'Galidor' alive. You all, regardless of location, regardless of age or time, regardless of passion and love or enjoyment and entertainment, have done something incredibly extraordinary. You have all refused to forget what 'Galidor' was and could one day, again, become. I am deeply humbled by your unfaltering dedication and thank you with every breath I take for sharing this adventure with not only myself, but the entire cast & crew of 'Galidor.' I once wrote Tom Lynch, creator of the series and a man that I not only deeply respect and admire, but also call 'friend,' that he had 'only taken a whisper out of his own life, to change mine forever..." The same can be said to all of you. Thank you for keeping this project which I love so deeply alive. And thank you for reminding me (even if I've never forgotten) that any dream worth dreaming, is worth fighting for... in every way. - Matthew Ewald --(Nicholas Bluetooth)" See more »
Allegra doesn't take her backpack or camera into the Outer Dimension in the pilot, but she has them afterward. On the other hand, she and Nick are both wearing hoodies when they do but they never wear them again, not even on the frozen planet. See more »
The premise for Galidor,2 kids & their alien companions & their adventures in another dimension had wonderful possibilities.Sadly this series did not fulfill its promise.After seeing that mature writing could be applied to Saturday morning "kid" shows such as Captain Power & his Soldiers of the Future & Hypernauts,this show stepped back to the days of unsophisticated & silly Sat a.m.shows.The allies that the kids met looked like they just walked over from Seseme St.I love cute muppets but not on this show.You can integrate terrific looking puppets or actors in full body suits into a sf series.Farscape has magnificently proved that.The lead actors were fine,tho'the villain was done in a melodramatic,over-the-top,clichéd manner.The cg fx were very well done,& they had some good looking sets.The show came off as blending of sf & fantasy elements.This rarely is ever a good mix.Various old plot lines are unimaginatively brought into play,and Nick's mission is has a been-there,done-that feel.
