Ep. 135 — GALAXY QUEST (1999)

IMG_8731.PNG

It's week two of our Class of 99 series and this week, we're taking a look at a film that didn't have a huge impact when it was released on Christmas of that year, but one that has, over time, grown to have an enormous cult following.

GALAXY QUEST, Dean Parisot's loving homage to STAR TREK, had quite the journey to the big screen, which we'll discuss, along with how its marketing was mismanaged to the point to where its box office performance was greatly impacted, and then track it all the way to its present reputation as a beloved cult film, especially among TREK fans.

We'll also discuss whether or not its legacy should make it eligible for inclusion in the Psychotronic Hall of Fame!
