Galaxy Quest

Galaxy Quest
Times aren’t good for the “Galaxy Quest” crew. Years after their TV show has been cancelled, they find themselves at various conventions, public appearances and store openings. But things get chaotic when a group of space aliens known as the Thermians, believe the “Galaxy Quest” is real and arrive to ask for the crew’s assistance to fight the evil Sarris. Here are a few movie mistakes to look for while watching “Galaxy Quest”.

∙ Near the beginning of the movie, Jason Nesmith a.k.a. Commander Taggart is signing autographs at a table when Brandon and his friends arrive. When Brandon says “excuse me”, the back view shows the girl that is with his group is on his right side. But in the following front view, when Jason stands up, the girl is on Brandon’s left side and almost behind him.

∙ The crew is on the command deck of the ship while it’s still at the space station. There is a screen in front of Tommy a.k.a. Laredo. At the beginning of the scene, the screen (side panel) is on. When Jason tells him to take the ship out, the screen (side panel) is off. He then hits the button to turn it on.

∙ The Galaxy Quest crew has to get a beryllium sphere to repair their ship. When they are on the planet before they get the sphere, Tech Sergeant Chen has a brown bag in his right hand. When they start to role the sphere, the bag is in his mouth. A few seconds later when the crew is told to run, the bag is gone and nowhere to be seen.

∙ CAUTION: May Contain Spoilers! When Sarris has attacked the crew on the command deck, Jason tries to activate the Omega 13. He is shown going over to the device and placing his hand on the activator button. But in the following front view, his hand is still above and not even touching the button yet.

∙ CAUTION: May Contain Spoilers! Near the end, after the ship has crash landed at the convention, the crew, including Guy and Alexander Dane a.k.a. Dr. Lazarus, stagger out onto the stage. The crew beings to take their bows in front of an astonished audience. The front view of Gwen a.k.a. Lieutenant Madison shows her legs are straight and slightly apart when she bows. But the following rear view shows her right leg is crossed behind her left.

“Galaxy Quest” (1999) stars Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Tony Shalhoub, Sam Rockwell, Daryl Mitchell, Enrico Colantoni, Robin Sachs, Patrick Breen and Justin Long. It runs 102 minute and is rated PG for some action violence, mild language and sensuality.
