Storyline

Plot Summary

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.

Trivia This episode spoofs Star Trek (1966). Wallace Langham, Liz Vassey, Kate Vernon, Bradley Thompson, David Weddle, Naren Shankar (who wrote the episode) and Ronald D. Moore (the man who shouts "You suck!") all worked on assorted Trek spin-offs in one capacity or another. Also, many of the "fantasy" sequences between Hodges and Simms are obvious spoofs of scenes from Star Trek. For example, the scene where Hodges and Simms are wearing "obedience collars" and Simms is running Hodges through training exercises is clearly an homage to the episode The Gamesters of Triskelion (1968), which has a scene that is nearly identical. Wallace Langham (Hodges) actually has a tie to Star Trek. In 1998 Wallace was in a 5th season episode of Star Trek: Voyager titled "Once Upon A Time" as a hologram character Flotter T. Water III.

Goofs Mandy correctly points out that traveling faster than the speed of light is impossible per Einstein physics, when mocking Wendy and Hodges' love of the show. But Star Trek - Galaxy Quest's "real life" inspiration, generally follows the same laws of physics. Ships in Star Trek do not, in fact, go faster than the speed of light - their "warp engines" effectively warp space, effectively shortening the distance the ship has to travel, at sub-light speeds. Not only does it fit within said laws of physics, it's one of the main scientific theories as to a method of humans eventually achieving interstellar travel. See more »
