Producer, actor and script writer Jonathan Danson is beaten to death at the SciFi convention where he presented a daringly 'realistic' remake of a highlighted cult series. Hodges and Wendy are on site, discovering to be both Questers (fans), which also kindles romantic space hero phantasms and clumsy dating attempts. Nick can use their expertise while investigating other fans who openly opposed the 'sacrilige' and academic SciFi mythology researcher Dr. Penelope Russell, who lies about her rapport with Danson.

Mandy correctly points out that traveling faster than the speed of light is impossible per Einstein physics, when mocking Wendy and Hodges' love of the show. But Star Trek - Galaxy Quest's "real life" inspiration, generally follows the same laws of physics.
Ships in Star Trek do not, in fact, go faster than the speed of light - their "warp engines" effectively warp space, effectively shortening the distance the ship has to travel, at sub-light speeds. Not only does it fit within said laws of physics, it's one of the main scientific theories as to a method of humans eventually achieving interstellar travel. See more
[after watching the fanboys denounce "Astro Quest Redux"
So let me get this straight: some nerd takes a cheesy '60s sci-fi show and turns it into something a little more realistic - minus the spaceship, of course - and the other nerds get pissed off enough that they beat him up and kill him over it?
People don't like it when you mess with their heroes.
