Trivia

Taybor's version of Hyperspace is similar to the old Atari "Asteroids" video game, as opposed to George Lucas' version seen a year later on "Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope", which was simply light speed. See more »

Goofs

When Maya finally reappears in Command Center, the regular characters respond, but the background extras never look away from their consoles, as though they were robots. See more »

Best performance by a pink-haired and morbidly obese alien award goes to Taybor.
25 May 2010 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Willoughby Goddard stars as Taybor--one of the most gregarious and jovial aliens during the run of the series. His character is certainly NOT subtle but loud and eager to make a trade with the Alphans. Commander Koenig is eager to trade--for Taybor's jump drive that will enable the humans to make it back to Earth. In exchange, Koenig offers Taybor the Moon--literally. However, it turns out that Taybor really wants something else...he wants Maya! Naturally, the Commander cannot just trade a sentient being and so it looks like, once again, the humans are out of luck--especially since Taybor is about as honest and trustworthy as a politician! Tune in to see what I mean--I won't say more, as I don't want to ruin the show.

Overall, while an interesting episode, I must admit that Goddard's performance was a bit over-the-top. While fun at first, his bit gets old pretty fast. Still, the show is different and worth seeing, though it's certainly not among the best of the series.
