A team of intrepid adventurers travels through the outer reaches of the galaxy, each week finding excitement and adventure on Galaxy Quest! Or at least that's the way it was in the mid-1970s, when brave if reckless Captain Peter Quincy Taggart, lovely Lieutenant Tawny Madison, and inscrutable alien Dr. Lazarus were the leaders of an interstellar law enforcement team on the TV series of that name.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Effects and production design are splendidly integrated into the overall enterprise, which is even more enjoyable for being so unexpected."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"The movie's humor works best when the illogic of the TV show gets in the way."
‑ Roger Ebert, At the Movies
"A fantastic science fiction comedy"
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Before Tropic Thunder, there came this clever and satisfying spoof of "Star Trek" and its enduing fan phenomenon."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"An enormously entertaining pop-culture ride."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"Boldly going where few parodies have gone before."
‑ Kevin Courrier, Globe and Mail
"It's a clever premise but not one that lends itself to an hour and 42 minutes of high jinks."
‑ Mark Caro, Chicago Tribune
"Hilarious, fast, funny, fresh fun for the family."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Despite a premise that sounds far from promising, GALAXY QUEST turns out to be an amusing adventure that ofers both good comedy and reasonably exciting science fiction."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, Cinefantastique
"A hilarious spoof of Trek and Trek fandom. While Galaxy Quest could have easily taken potshots at geeks, rather the film acts as more of a celebration of these sometimes misguided devotees."
‑ Chris Gore, Film Threat
"The drolleries take precedence over the special effects."
‑ Peter Rainer, New York Magazine
"It'll beam you way, way up."
‑ Bob Longino, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"Galaxy Quest works not just as a parody or a send-up of a type of film. It works as a basic space adventure as well."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"While gently spoofing the old Star Trek series and honoring it, Galaxy Quest creates and inhabits its own uniquely lovable universe."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"It's hip, it's funny and it is one of the better ensemble efforts -- both in front and behind the camera. I had a fun time."
‑ Robin Clifford, Reeling Reviews
