Storyline

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. Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

Jonathan Danson: My name is Jonathan Danson, and I'm here to set you free. Free from a vision of an antiseptic future filled with... with heroes and heroines who are always steadfast and well-adjusted and altruistic. Like most of you, I grew up with "Astro Quest." Every Thursday night my dad would gather the family around our TV to watch the latest episode. I loved it! But the older I got, the more the mythology began to eat away at my soul.

For Fans of ST:TOS and Both Versions of BSG...
28 January 2010 | by (Arlington, VA.) – See all my reviews

I know it's just my opinion (that's what IMDb reviews are for, right?), but of all the post-Grissom episodes, this might be far and away the best AND the funniest. The producers and the writers are obvious ST: TOS and BSG fans, because the care they took in lovingly spoofing the details in Hodges' and Bryce's fantasies is a dead giveaway. And throwing in cameos by Ron Moore and Grace Park? HUGE plus. If you are a fan of either or any of the imitated shows, but not necessarily a CSI watcher, this is the episode that may just get you hooked. Bravo to cast, crew and especially David Weddle, Bradley Thompson, Naren Shankar and Michael Nankin. Can we have more like this, please?
