The actors of the once popular science fiction show Galaxy Quest have had it. They’re tired of doing reunion gigs for fan conventions and store openings, and they’re especially tired of how Jason Nesmith, who played Commander Taggert, keeps hogging their fading limelight. The washed up troupe is on the verge of mutiny, in no frame of mind to humor Jason and his new client. But it turns out the client is a race of real aliens in need of help. They’ve intercepted tapes of the old Galaxy Quest show and think that Jason and his crew are real space heroes. When they take them aboard their spaceship, the aging actors find, to their astonishment, that they might be heroes after all.
