Storyline

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. They also meet some new people like Suzee (Catalina's imaginary friend from ... Written by Bethany

Trivia

Whenever the ship shakes and the crew is thrown off-balance (a common occurrence in space-based series), Radu is usually shown standing perfectly still. This is a result of the character's superhuman strength and equilibrium. See more »

Miss this show
21 August 2004 | by renegaderadinkaSee all my reviews

This show was one of my favorites from when I was a kid. I haven't thought of it for a long time, but I stumbled across an online writer who does the most amazing fan fiction about the characters, and so I've recently been seized by renewed interest in the show. I felt it had so much potential, and I think the time is ripe for it to make a comeback, if not on television, then in novels, or comic books, or something! The saga was left so unfinished, the cadets never even got close to getting home, Cat was still trapped in Yensid, there was so much of the story left to tell! Peter David, if you read this, please consider writing some Space Cases novels, or allow other writers to take up the cause!
