Never give up, never surrender!
For four years, the crew of the NSEA Protector donned their uniforms and set off on thrilling and often dangerous missions in space - then their series was cancelled. Twenty years later, the five stars of the classic 70s TV series Galaxy quest are still in costume, making appearances at science fiction conventions for their legions of die-hard fans. But some of those fans are a little more far out than the actors could ever have imagined.
A group of aliens who have mistaken intercepted television transmissions for historical documents arrive at a convention and whisk Commander Peter Quincy Taggart (Tim Allen) and his crew into space to help them in their all-too-real war against a deadly adversary. With no script, no director, and no clue about real interstellar travel, the make-believe crew of the protector has to turn in the performances of their lives to become the heroes the aliens believe them to be.
Also starring Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Tony Shalhoub, Sam Rockwell, Daryl Mitchell and Enrico Colantoni. Screenplay by David Howard and Robert Gordon, directed by Dean Parisot.
