For four years, the courageous crew of the NSEA Protector - "Commander Peter Quincy Taggart" (Tim Allen), "Lt. Tawny Madison" (Sigourney Weaver) and "Dr. Lazarus" (Alan Rickman) - set off on thrilling and often dangerous missions in space... and then their series was cancelled! Now, twenty years later, aliens under attack have mistaken the Galaxy Quest television transmissions for "historical documents" and beamed up the crew of has-been actors to save the universe. With no script, no director and no clue, the actors must turn in the performance of their lives in this hilarious adventure.
You don't have to be a trekkie to watch this but it helps if you've seen a few episodes. This film has another layer to it which makes it much more entertaining than a traditional Sci-Fi film. Very enjoyable, I could watch it again.

Be patient, it takes a while to get into but this film is great fun, a warmhearted and thoughtful send up of the star trek genre. Sigourney Weaver really has the right to star and I loved this film.
