Trivia

Many people mistakenly report this show is set in the year 3732, but if you listen to the opening credits, the Space Academy itself was *founded* in the "star year" 3732. There is no actual mention in the show of how many years the Academy has been in operation (since it's founding), thus, as viewers, we really do not know what year this show is set in. See more »

Cmdr. Isaac Gampu
10 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

The character of Issac Gampu is almost a polar opposite to Jonathan Harris's earlier role in Lost in Space. Whereas Dr. Smith was a foolish ,selfish coward, who often caused whatever predicament the Robinsons had to solve that week, Cmdr. Isaac Gampu was wise, studious and brave. It is my opinion that the memory of this character was lingering in the back of the minds of the writers for Star trek, the Next generation, when they were writing for Capt. Picard. There are strong similarities in both characters. It could also be that the archetype of a wise, noble leader inspired both sets of writers. It is a testament to Harris' talent as an actor that he could play both characters so memorably.
