For four years, the courageous crew of the NSEA Protector-- 'Commannder Peter Quincy Taggart, ' 'Lt. Tawny Madison, ' and 'Dr. Lazarus'-- set off on thrilling and often dangerous missions in space-- and then their series was cancelled! Now, twenty years later, aliens under attack have mistaken the Galaxy Quest television transmissions for 'historical documents' and beamed up the crew of has-been actors to save the universe. With no script, no director and no clue, the actors must turn in the performances of their lives
