Interesting and engaging kiddie-sci-fi (NASA sponsored?)
2 February 2002 | by ian19_2kSee all my reviews

StarCom as a series was very enthralling to me, at first as a child and on through to my teenage years. It was the first TV series I had ever seen that seemed to accept some sort of science fact into the sci-fi equation. (Naturally, as you may have guessed, Trek is my cup of tea now!)

The characters were easily likeable, the storylines underpinned in real life science (ie. accurate depiction of the gas layers of Jupiter, the temperatures of moons such as Io when in direct sunlight, and so on.)One thing it did really smell of was promotion. If NASA wanted to get kids interested in space sciences, this was the way to do it! Can anyone confirm that??

It also presented a quite possible format of future space exploration: A space station built into one of the asteroids in the rings orbiting Saturn and so on. Great Saturday morning stuff.
