Galaxy Quest

Back in April of 2015 we found out that a TV series based on the sci-fi comedy cult classic Galaxy Quest was being developed by Paramount Television. Then, later that same year came word that the project had been acquired by Amazon Studios.

Now Paul Scheer (The League, Childrens Hospital), who was hired to write the adaptation earlier this year, has shared an update on where the Galaxy Quest TV series stands and what he’s hoping to go with it. Continue below to see what he had to say.

Galaxy Quest

Last summer it was reported that the TV series based on the sci-fi comedy Galaxy Quest being developed by Paramount would be coming to Amazon. But, as it turns out, there was more to the story than just that.

Star Sam Rockwell was a guest on the Nerdist podcast recently, and he dropped a bit of a shocker: not only was Galaxy Quest 2 a go, but all of the cast was on board for it and the movie was planned to be filming around now. Then came the devastating loss of Alan Rickman, and other cast members’ schedules began to conflict, so the sequel was off.

You can read Rockwell’s quote below.

They’ll also be executive producers along with Mark Johnson, who had the same role on the movie, and Melissa Bernstein.

Preview ‘Galaxy Quest: The Journey Continues #1’

Galaxy Quest: The Journey Continues #1 banner

It was ranked as the seventh best Star Trek movie by hardcore Trek fans and now, Galaxy Quest — the 1999 scifi action comedy that was not, in fact, part of the Trek universe, but sure as hell came close — is going to live on in a new comic book series from IDW called Galaxy Quest: The Journey Continues.

The film starred Tim Allen as Jason Nesmith, an actor who was on a scifi TV series very similar to Star Trek called Galaxy Quest, where he played a character very much like Captain Kirk. The cast members reunite at a convention, where they are approached by a group of aliens who enlist the actors to help them against a warlord, because they believe the events of the television series are Earth’s actual history.

Written by Erik Burnham with art by Nacho Arranz, the 32-page full-color Galaxy Quest: The Journey Continues #1 was released today, Wednesday, January 21, 2015; check out the preview of this first issue here below.

Galaxy Quest

Speaking with Lindsey Collins—producer of the massive Disney blockbuster that hit theaters this weekend, John Carter—recently, Collider’s Steve Weintraub was informed of some long-lost buried treasure of sorts.

Apparently Galaxy Quest, the fantastic 1999 sci-fi comedy starring Tim Allen, Alan Rickman, Sigourney Weaver, Sam Rockwell, Tony Shalhoub, and Daryl Mitchell (as well as a slew of other familiar faces) as the stars of an old sci-fi TV series (a la Star Trek) who inadvertently find themselves beamed out to space to help very real aliens put an end to the ongoing threats of an evil being named Sarris and his crew, was initially an R-rated comedy before being cut down to the PG version fans know and love.

Night of the Living Trekkies

Quirk Books is adding a new zombie tale to their collection with Night of the Living Trekkies, a novel by Kevin David Anderson and Sam Stall which sees Trekkies at a convention meet the undead!

The publisher, which is known for its literary monster mash-ups like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters, hails the book as the “strange lovechild of Galaxy Quest and Dawn of the Dead.”

When hordes of the undead come to feast upon the attendees at a Star Trek convention, a group of Trekkies fight for their lives using everything they’ve learned from old Star Trek episodes.

Quirk plans to release the new book — which is available now for pre-order — on September 1, 2010.

There’s no final artwork for the book at this time. The header here at top is part of the preliminary cover.

Dragon*Con ’09 Videos: GoD Interviews Female Green Lantern, An Inventor & Gets A Lesson In Goth

Geeks of Doom Invades Dragon Con 2009

As you may have noticed, our video team on the scene (I just made that up — gold star for me), Doug E. Karate and Rob E.Danger did a fantastic job of finding interesting things and people at Dragon*Con 2009 and showcasing them for all who didn’t attend to see.

This time around we have three pretty epic videos for you to enjoy — two interviews, and even an in-depth lesson in the Gothic culture. The first chat is with a woman talks about how she fell in love with The Green Lantern while watching the cartoons in Spanish growing up, and who even attended the convention dressed as a Lantern herself. Next up, you’ll meet a real, live inventor who brought along one of his creations. I can’t honestly tell you what it is or what it does, but it does throws a bunch of random phrases at you. The contraption is rather big and hangs around our new friend’s neck as he strolls. It actually kind of looks like an ’80s computer and a calculator had a romantic romp inside Jeff Goldblum’s The Fly machine, and then was teleported via the ship from Galaxy Quest, resulting in some form of inside-out electronic device.

After you check those out, prepare to take notes, as a couple of young kids will shatter all that you think you know about what Goth really is and what it means. If you’re like me, all you have to go on is what you’ve seen on South Park (Conformist!), and a little learnin’ will do help a lot. You’ll learn about what music they listen to, which ranges from exactly what you might expect to…bluegrass? You’ll discover that not all Gothic kids these days are total Satan groupies, and that some are actually Goth-Christian. And yes, you shall find out that there is in fact many “sub-species” to the overall Goth style, including the more bright and vivid Cyber-Goths, the Lolita Goths, and — wait for it — the confusing and highly contradictory Preppy Goth!

Click on over to see the videos. You know your curiosities have moved beyond temptation to pure necessity.
